Never Grow Up

I love country music because it’s real and sometimes it just hits home.

While listening to Taylor Swifts new album the other day I came across the song ‘Never Grow Up’ and it hit me; this is me and my little girl.

Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you everything’s funny, you got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
I won’t let nobody hurt you, won’t let no one break your heart
And no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

Now how a 20-year-old who’s never had kids can write a song that’s so touching is beyond me, but it gets me every time.

I know my little girl is growing up and I can’t stop that, but I’m reminded to cherish every moment I get to be with her.

    I know what you mean. Everytime I hear Rodney Adkins – Watching You, I think of my son. It’s like he wrote that for us.
