born to get older lyrics – ulrik munther

yes we all grow up

black with flashes of blue
my bike was the coolest one in school
but somehow my helmet disappeared each afternoon
oh, those possible times
when nothing could stop our childish minds
we played in the woods, the streets
with swords and shields we fight

and those memories
they remind in me

the time goes on no matter what
we’re born to get older
yeah life goes on no matter what
we’re born to get older
yeah we all grow u-u-up
grow u-u-u-up
yeah we all grow u-u-up
grow u-u-u-up
yeah we all grow up

piles of dishes and clothes
living on noodles, beer and toast
i should be working but instead i’m writing songs
oh, guys staying up late
talking ’bout girls and videogames
and all of our problems, they resolved within a day o-
oh

when those days are gone
there’ll be more to come

ey, ’cause time goes on no matter what
we’re born to get older
and life goes on no matter what
we’re born to get older
’cause we all grow u-u-up
grow u-u-u-up
yeah we all grow u-u-up
grow u-u-u-up

yeah i know
there will come a time
when i’m old, grey and always tired
i know there will come a ti-i-i-i-ime
when i know more than i do now
when i’m old, grey and always tired
i know it will be alright

’cause i know that we all grow up

ey, o-o-o-o-o-oh yeah
and life goes on and on and on
we’re born to get older yeah-ay
’cause we all grow u-u-up, u-u-u-up
yeah we all grow u-u-up, u-u-u-up
yeah we all grow up
