Song Background: Grown as Kids

This is one of my favorite songs that I’ve released so far. The beat sets the table for a smooth vibe and my cadence complimented it so well. When I made the beat, I no intention of writing to it. But a week or two later when the beat came up again, it was practically begging for it.

Grown as Kids was released May 26, 2021 with a run time of 2:09. It’s short because of the format of the verses and choruses. But trust me, the vibe and message are felt from start to finish. With every song I release, improvement is my top priority. On Grown as Kids, I danced with my words and played with the groove set by the beat.

The message is simple and can be summed up with the first few lines of the first verse. “When we were young, we wanted to be old, now we older. Then found out the world’s a lot colder than it seemed. Now we got dreams of getting over it. With bridges that we built, relationships that show and tell.”

You can listen to the song and read the lyrics below…

Lyrics:

Yeah
The name is BFK

I steady think on how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids
I’m steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids

When we were young,
We wanted to be older, now we older
Then found out the world’s
A lot colder than it seemed
Now we got dreams of getting over it
With bridges that we built
Relationships that show and tell
I hated chores as a kid
Not gonna lie about it
I couldn’t wait to leave the house
Wanted to fly up out
Now I doubt it miss those times
Can you take me back
Open both arms cause you know I’m thinking that

I’m steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids
I steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids

The age could change with mind the same
We just get more beside our name
A new page, new game
More work, same pain
New lane never show you’re hurt though.
You better balance it all
Then get back up when you fall
And answer all of your calls
Knowing though some are fake
It’s great if you ain’t had to learn the hard way
That the present’s all we got, you can’t be far away

I’m steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids
I’m steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids

Have yo kids, ever try to play you
Do something silly to play you like a straight fool
Maybe it’s me, my temper be on stand by
I’m always hot like some grease at a fish fry
I’m working on my patience tryna be a better me
I got my sons around
And I can not let em see
They daddy blowing up
That’s leading by example
You know, when you do it first
Give them a sample

I’m steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids
I’m steady thinking how we’ve grown as kids
And all the wrong we did
Just some grown ass kids
