Memories & Dust

---Verse---

I found my childhood toys the other day
Covered in memories and dust now
I sat down and I tried to play
But I just couldn't figure out how

---Chorus---

I guess I grew up too fast
I guess I lost all my youth
They say that good things don't last
Yeah I fear that that's the truth
I guess that time just moved on
And now it's all in the past
I'm scared my childhood is gone
I think I grew up too fast
Yeah I just grew up too fast

---Verse---

I used to look at trees and wonder how to climb them
Now I don't notice, guess that means that I'm grown
I used to look at walls and wonder what's behind them
But now I'm too busy putting up walls of my own

---Chorus---

I guess I grew up too fast
I guess I lost all my youth
They say that good things don't last
Yeah I fear that that's the truth
I guess that time just moved on
And now it's all in the past
I'm scared my childhood is gone
I think I grew up too fast
Yeah I just grew up too fast

---Bridge---

My smile's no longer the same
I lost the sparkle in my eyes
I guess I somehow became
Someone I don't recognise
Someone that I don't know
With traits I don't want to have
Feels like a lifetime ago
Since the last time that I laughed

---Chorus---

I guess I grew up too fast
I guess I lost all my youth
They say that good things don't last
Yeah I fear that that's the truth
I guess that time just moved on
And now it's all in the past
I'm scared my childhood is gone
I think I grew up too fast
Yeah I just grew up too fast

---Outro---

I don't remember how to be happy
My toy cars are all covered in rust
And now everything is gone and all that's left for me
Is memories and dust

    Very good lyric. I like your writing style. I'm also a lyricist. I'm curious why so few folks on this site have posted examples of their work. It would be a real timesaver if everyone posted examples.
