Candice


She thinks "I want my body to look like that"
As the roller waitress wheels past
While she sits in the car with her mom at the Sonic
And she says "these freckles have got to go
And when I get older I'm gonna show
more and more of me they're gonna see!"

Cuz' she's ten years old and just getting older
Every minute every second
The world around her
Still confounds her
But she'd carry it on her shoulder
Cuz she's gonna be Queen
And She'll be mean if she has to
To show you
She's all grown
Hey let it be known
She's all grown

Well the girls shirt said "Number one Witch"
and todays music scratches that itch
She has for control and rebelling
Against all she knows about becoming
A lady she doesn't wanna be,
Because that is someone she has never seen
In a world that says "it's all OK"
She's gonna make her way
The MTV way
Whatever they say

Cuz' she's fifteen years old
and just getting older
Every minute every second


The world around her
Still confounds her
But she'd carry it on her shoulder
Cuz she's gonna be queen
And She'll be mean if she has to
To show you
She's all grown
Hey let it be known
She's all Grown.

And as the world around her closes in
All she knows is she needs a real friend
But as she gets older she builds more walls
She hopes they'll keep her from the fall
She doesn't see she's already fallen
Now all she can do is cry
And ask why
Jesus come and meet her
Free her

Cuz' she's twenty years old and just getting older
Every minute every second
The world around her
Still confounds her
But she'd carry it on her shoulder
Cuz she's gonna be Queen
And She'll be mean if she has too
To show you
She's all grown
Hey let it be known
