I've been getting' in some trouble lately I don't know who I am
I used to be the good kid and my bad mistakes were never that bad
Seems I've crossed over some line-it was only a matter of time

First loves have come and gone
I've said some things I shouldn't have said
I've had my share of disappointments
And worked some jobs that messed with my head
Now we know too much to be innocent (like before)
And we can't go back anymore

It's the end, it's the end of our childhood
It's the end of our days in the backyard
As we wave goodbye to home and set off to meet the world
It's the end, but it's a new start

Get up early every morning far away from my distant dreams
I could be part of something new or just a cog in the grinding machine
Not ready to pack away my pride got too much to offer inside

It's the end...

The big choices lie before us-who do we want to be?
We change ourselves we change the world - it comes with being free

It's the end...
