This song is by Delay and appears on the album ...Don't Laugh (2006).

Mom and Dad I'm so sorry
I didn't mean to grow up
I don't think that I wanted this, I couldn't make it stop and I know that things will never, never be the same and I know that it still sounds funny when you call my name
And the house is so quiet
You make jokes and pretend like you like it, but I know the pain of silence
Don't think I didn't find it, 'cause I did and I will and I can't hide from it anymore
We all know what's happening
Don't say a word
We try to act like we always did, but you know it doesn't work
I don't know if it has to be like this, but it's too late 'cause it is
I think that it's working 'cause I've got confidence like I never had
It seems we're so busy
I can tell that you miss me
I promise things will get better
I'll have more time for family, but right now I hope you understand I'm doing my best just to grow up I guess
So I was running through the house I said that I had to get out
Don't you know that I didn't mean that
Now that I am out, I only have one wish that I could go back home and run through the yard and jump to the stone that's always there and right from the stone I jump to the second stair
I throw the door open and it hits the house
I'm sorry that I'm always so loud
I know you're gonna wait for me on the couch
Wait for me, every time
I'm late again, but I know that you're gonna wait again
