Lyrics:

Hard Age to Be

(Verse 1)
She is such a pretty girl she just turned 17
Years away from dolls and plastic pearls
Waiting for her life to finally catch up to her dreams
But new problems pop up all around and swirl
Sent home for a dress cut too high above the knee
Now she's counting down the days when she can finally be free

(Chorus)
It's such a hard age to be
All the noise will get softer
It's such a hard age to be
Look in the mirror and love her
Up and down your family tree
Everybody needs a moment to breathe
It's such a hard age to be

(Verse 2)
Just sick of the grind and being tired all the time,
Since she turned 29 again
Her kids are screaming for her and there's a notice in the mail
For a payment that she could have sworn she sent
She used to always dream about how great her life would be
Now she's starting to think that she might never be free

(Bridge)
Life can seem much colder
When you think you've reached the end of the line
But as you grow older
You will find your strength inside

She's feeling lost inside, many years have passed her by
All she wants is to be young again
Her house is old, it's just been sold, and she's leaving it behind
Is this a beginning or an end?
Her daughter came to visit with a child for her to see
With the crying baby in her arms she whispered so softly…
