Testo della canzone All Grown Up di Elvis Costello
Im trouble she said
Spread out on the floor of her fathers house
Her promise was almost undone
Under her tongue, dissolving her responsibilities
To finally deny everyone with unflattering comparison

Chorus:
All grown up
And you dont care anymore
And you hate all the people that you used to adore
And you despise all the rumors and lies of the life you led before

Did I hear you right?
Youre feeling hounded and pushed around
You want to just lay down and die
If all of this life has been such a big disappointment to you
Why dont you stop blaming some guy
And go give the next one a try

Chorus

But look at yourself
Youll see youre still so young
You havent earned the weariness
That sounds so jaded on your tongue

Im weak she says
And blesses herself and gets into bed
Clutching the covers to her throat
So punish me now and let me go back to the sham of my life
This night is the perfect antidote for all of the poison that
You wrote

Chorus
