Josh Joplin - The Growing Up Boy



[Intro]
C  F  C

[Verse 1]
F                             C
Friends wear the scars of the lessons you learned
        F                                       C
And you sit by the embers of the bridges you've burned
   G                       F           C
We all have a story and we each take a turn
Dm          F           C     F  C
Laughing at all of your shit


[Verse 2]
    F                             C
And everyone is just somebody you knew
        F                                      C
And you never mean harm by the things that you do
    G                        F             C
But saying it through tears, don't make it true
Dm            F          C
Just makes it hard to forget it


[Chorus]
        G                  F           C
And the growing up boy, he never grows up
     G                   F          C
He's taunted by fear and haunted by love
    Dm      F                    C
Too late to learn, you've taken enough
               F  G C
Growing up boy


[Verse 3]
     F                                                C
It's heartache, it's heartbreak, it's dark clouds and then
       F                                C
It's a day of self-pity and he's on the mend
   G                       F           C
He finds true love for the first time again
         Dm            F         C
When the memory of the last girl lapses


[Verse 4]
                                    F            C
And he wakes up half-hearted and he looks at his phone
                                 F         C
For a message to remind him that he's not alone
       G                    F             C
And he always has many, but none are from home
      Dm           F          C       F
So he goes back to bed and collapses


[Chorus]
        G                  F           C
And the growing up boy, he never grows up
     G                   F          C
He's taunted by fear and haunted by love
    Dm                    F      C
Too late to learn, you've taken enough
           F
Growing up boy


[Instrumental]
C      F   C


[Verse 5]
      F                                           C
'Each day is your birthday', is what I wrote in a card
   F                                    C
To say a kind word, I just found it too hard
   G                      F         C
I erased what I meant, so just disregard
Dm            F            C
Make what you want of this form


[Verse 6]
F                                   C     F  C
Love is not like the songs that you sing
    F                                       C
How could you complain when it don't mean a thing
        G                         F           C
You can steal every verse and you break every string
            Dm      F                 C
And there's no one around when you're done


[Chorus]
        G                  F           C
And the growing up boy, he never grows up
     G                   F          C
He's taunted by fear and haunted by love
    Dm                    F      C
Too late to learn, you've taken enough
           F         C
Growing up boy, grow up
