Until now, I've been a fool,
I've been so dumb, since I born,
You've been bright like the sun,
Don't listen to me son.

I was blind, you were strong,
I was stupid and wrong,
I told you son, don't listen,
To a single word I say.

So please forget, all the things I scream and shout,
I'm so ashamed of how I treated you back then,
I've let myself down now and I'll let myself out,
Don't look back, I won't leave like this again,
Now we're growing wild.

We were sown, in a line
Like vegetables, watered each day,
Then the wind caught our vines,
Since then we've lost our way.

Like baby leaves, which shimmer green,
Like rain that drips floating downstream,
But somewhere we strayed off course,
We're riddled with remorse.

So please forget, all the stupid things I've done,
I haven't seen your face around here for years and years,
A photograph that has faded in the sun,
Let's share our dreams,
And let's share all of our fears,
Now we're growing wild.

The black forest, which burns like coal,
Surrounds me now, and burns my soul,
And the ash keeps falling thick,
And covering me quick.

You were lost, in the smoke,
I followed the sound of your choke,
I was black like the night
When all you dreams are frights.

So please forget, all the other things I did,
Don't look back, like you're looking out to sea,
Give me some time, maybe I'll be a bit less stupid,
If it's easier, then just forget about me,
Now we're growing wild.

Now I am useless, they'll banish me slowly and all that I wanted was to be left alone.
Now we're growing wild.

I wanted you so bad, I wanted you so bad, I wanted you so bad but now I don't know where you are.
Now we're growing wild.

Gone to seed,
Float through the trees,
We're scattered through the earth,
Now we're growing wild.

So come with me,
Take my hand,
Through lies we'll understand
That we're growing wild.
