Today I want to share with you some of my favorite lyrics from Ben Platt.
The song is called Grow As We Go, and it’s a beautiful letter for young lovers. You can get the sentiment from the chorus.
You don’t ever have to leave
If to change is what you need
You can change right next to me
When you’re high, I’ll take the lows
You can ebb and I can flow
And we’ll take it slow
And grow as we go
Now my favorite part is this verse.
I don’t know who we'll become
I can’t promise it’s not written in the stars
But I believe that when it’s done
We’re gonna see that it was better
That we grew up together
I so connect to this verse because it explains exactly the way I’ve felt about my relationship. We’re so young (I’m 21, she’s 20). Everyone tells us we’ll grow up and change and don’t take relationships seriously right now.
But that’s not us. Forget that mindset. I love this person and I’m all in.
In the end, we’re going to see that it was better that we grew up together.
