Afraid of what the world could do to you
Your arms so wide, your open fearlessness
How they’ll bend and break your searching heart
Oh, you don’t know how it felt

Always told me be back before it’s dark
Look both ways and don’t you stray too far
Worry bottled in your jarred-up heart
But I’ve grown up now

I’m leaving home
Oh please don’t go
I’m not that far from where you are
You might get hurt
But I’ve got to try
I never wanted to say goodbye
I know what time can do

I’ve always known this day would come for you
I understand why you’re moving on
I hope you know that my love goes with you
Take care, my child

Oh you taught me well, I’m ready for the world
And I’ll wear your wisdom like a lucky shirt
Oh I’ll grab the stars in the sky
I’ve grown up now

You’re leaving home
Oh I have to go
I’m not that far from where you are
I might get hurt
But you’ve got to try
I never wanted to say goodbye

Well I know what time can do
We blossom and we change
We struggle, rearrange
Wherever you go, I hope you’ll know
Well I know what time can do, and I’ll always be with you

We’ll never really say goodbye
