Bittersweet

------ Verse ------

There comes a day when you learn that youth has given all it could

There comes a day you realise that you're growing up for good

And you can't go back, to the dreams you had

No you can't go back

------ Pre-Chorus ------

Back to sitting by the water and dreaming of the day

You could be just like your mother, but it seemed so far away

------ Chorus ------

Yeah you dreamt of it

Of having the world at your feet

But now looking back at it

Well ain't that memory bittersweet

Your dreams incomplete

Bittersweet

 ------ Verse ------

Everyday you go to work like you did the day before 

Every night you come back to the same damn house with the same damn door

And you don't know what for

But you don't care no more

------ Chorus ------

You used to dream of it

Of having the world at your feet

Now looking back at it

Well ain't that memory bittersweet

Your dreams incomplete

Bittersweet

------ Bridge ------

Now everynight

You're all alone

Till you close your eyes

And dream of home

Dream of another life

Back when you couldn't wait

Till the day that you could drive

Or fly away

------ Chorus ------

Yeah you dreamt of it

Of having the world at your feet

But now looking back at it

Well ain't that memory bittersweet

Your life's incomplete

Bittersweet

    Hey, nice lyric, not quite perfect in rhyme, a bit unperfect maybe but fresh ideas to the topic growing up. I like.
