Being Young

(performed by Amy Carlson)
written by Amy Carlson & Tom Sparks
Hey Mom, I just called you today
I called you today ‘cause a lot’s on my mind.
Yeah, this job, it’s been wearing me out
This can’t be the life that I’ve dreamed about
If feels like, I’ll be poor ‘til I die
Working all day and just barely getting by
Momma make me feel like it’s just a part of being young

Make me feel like everything will be alright
Make me feel like at the end of the tunnel there’s light
Make me feel that the good times will come once the hard times are done
Like it’s just part of being young

Momma said, hey girl, I’m so glad that you called
I was just looking at pictures of when you were small
We’re so proud that you’re out on your own
That you’re surviving pretty well even though you’re all alone
We all knew that you’d struggle to find
The meaning to life but you’ll find that in time
Yeah, that’s just part of being young

Baby believe everything will be alright
Baby believe at the end of the tunnel there’s light
Baby believe those good times will come once the hard times are done
Yeah that’s just part of being young

Oh but momma I miss you will you tell Daddy that I miss him too
I hate it here and I wanna leave, can I come home ‘cause this ain’t for me

So make me feel like everything will be alright
And make me feel like at the end of the tunnel there’s light
Make me feel like the good times will come once the hard times are done
Like it’s just part of ...
Like it’s just part of…
Like it’s just part of being young
