Grow As We Go

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.
