Old Enough

Something's changed
It's not that I fear but
Maybe it's that I took care of you
too many times,
And you grew weaker for a kindness
Sometimes kindness from a friend
can break a man

I can understand
You sit there like a child-man
I never meant to make you cry
I'd turn the clock but how can I?
You're Old Enough to know
You're Old Enough to know

Why do you shun me
when I treat you with respect?
You've been my best friend,
joy and happiness
But without a tender kiss sometimes,
We may as well say goodbye...

Cuz late at night, as the cars go by,
I lay here and watch you try
to pretend you're not breaking inside
For someone to sing in your ear...
I can understand...
You sit there like a child and beg,
But if you want me to stay,
Baby has to cry sometime
Don't be kind to me,
I wanna walk away...

You're Old Enough to know
You're Old Enough to know
You're Old Enough to know
Ah, you're Old Enough to know
