Lyrics:

I remember fightin' bout cleanin' up my room
I'd hear your footsteps up the stairs
And stash my book under my bed when I got scared
And you'd get mad enough to use my middle name

Always wished you wouldn't tell me what to do
Thought I knew better
Always wished you wouldn't tell me what to do

You said it's a long road darlin' gettin' outta nowhere
You gotta go take the path you're scared to
Long road, but it goes somewhere

And I know that I sound different through the phone
I know that I sound too polite, it's been a while since we've had a fight
You know that I've been having some bad days
But you don't know what to say

Now I wish you could tell me what to do
Don't wanna know better
Oh I wish you could tell me what to do

Just say it's a long road darlin' gettin' outta nowhere
You gotta go take the path you're scared to
Long road, but it goes somewhere
And I wish you could tell me what to do
Cause I will never outgrow you

And I still keep my room a mess
Got piles of books under my bed
I'm scared of the dark, I'm still a child
Wish it could stay that way

You said it's a long road darlin' gettin' outta nowhere
You gotta go take the path you're scared to
Long road, but it goes somewhere
I know it's a long road, and I'm getting out of nowhere
I'm gonna go take the path I'm scared to
Long road but I'm going somewhere
And I wish you could tell me what to do
Cause I
I
I
I
Oh I will never outgrow you
