lyrics

I'm writing you a postcard from each place that I have been
So you know that I saw more than just the town you were born in
Saying hi from every corner of this crazy little ride
And I promise I will write no matter where you've gone to hide

When I grow up I'm gonna be the best I ever was
When I grow up I'm gonna do whatever a woman does
Hit the road and make my way and fall in love
When I grow up

A day and then a month goes by and pretty soon a year
Making victories new memories and facing all my fears
I didn't feel you with me so I thought that you were gone
But through the bumps and twists and turns you were writing me a song

When I grow up I'm gonna be the best I ever was
When I grow up I'm gonna do whatever a woman does
Hit the road and make my way and fall in love
When I grow up

I didn't hear you missed me til I strayed to far from home
Thinkin' I had learned so much forgettin' everything I know
But I found a little motel and I'll call you up tonight
And we'll laugh about the fun we had just tryin' to get it right

Some leave them behind
Nothing but tomorrow
We're following our stars
But we're just children, we're only children

When I grow up I'm gonna be the best I ever was
When I grow up I'm gonna do whatever a woman does
Hit the road and make my way and fall
When I grow up
