You’re growing up too fast they said,
But I don’t want to live my life like them
And I just want to think about tonight
Because the past is my ghost.

Let’s meet up in a shady part of towns,
Where they don’t want to see us lose
Our crowns because we’re kings to them.
Well I don’t think we’re kings of anything.
(No I don’t think we’re kings of anything)

Sneak out to the rooftop scene,
Surrounded by such evil things.
I won’t admit this but I hate it here.

And what they don’t know
Is that the place they told me I should never go
Was the place I learned to love the most
What they don’t know,
Is just something they forgot when they grew old
(You have to fall)
You have to fall before you grow.

So I’ll say thanks for the advice,
The choice is mine to make tonight.
I’d rather do this on my own than fall right into place.
And we will never be alive
If we don’t learn to live our lives.
I’ll run in circles till I die,
Rather than have to retrace your lines.

I am so sorry if you think I didn't need you,
But my heart has never lost a place for you.
I just got tired of the way you stopped my movement.
All I ever truly wanted was to live.

And what they don’t know
Is that the place they told me I should never go,
Was the place I learned to love the most
And what they don’t know
Is just something they forgot when they grew old
(You have to fall)
You have to fall before you grow
(Before you grow) x3
And after all you have to fall before you grow
