I'm nearly 16 years old, and I'm losing the love and trust with my family. Going through a lot of things...having an 18 year old boyfriend, who I've been with for 8 months. I smoke and drink. But overall I'm really smart and am aiming to finish year 12. I just wish my life slowed down a bit. I grew up too fast and my parents want their little girl back.

Growing Up Too Fast


Growing Up Too Fast,

It seems for the future I am prepared,
but the thought of commitment is getting me scared.
These feelings I feel, they're different, they're new...
being loved and adored is the reason my confidence grew.
I feel like his love is helping me cope,
I'm worried if he leaves me I can't stand on my own.
I'm forgetting my family, the child I used to be...
hurting them by fighting for the one I want to see.
Taking bigger steps every chance I get
is making me worry that I'll look back with regret.
Young by age, matured in the mind...
the little girl they want back is hard to find.
