DIA – Grown Up (어른)

I went under my blanket and cried and cried
But I don’t feel better, actually I’m even more frustrated
I was forcing myself to smile, pretending like I’m OK
But my reflection in the mirror looks so pitiful

Don’t worry, I’m not in pain
I’m always strong and bold
But why am I so sad?

When I become a grown up
When I grow a little taller

I thought I’d really be happy
But why

When things get hard
Like a child
I can’t hold back my tears
Even though I’m a grown up now

I’ve gotten older but my childish whines keep growing
This big world is blocking my way
(So frustrating)

The higher you go
The more you become a grown up
Is it always like this?

Don’t give up
Don’t fall down
(I know all of that)
I need something else

On top of my sagging shoulders
Is the weight of responsibility
I’m limping, dangerously
But they say I’m all grown up

Don’t worry, I’m not in pain
I’m always strong and bold
But why am I so sad?

When I become a grown up
When I grow a little taller

I thought I’d really be happy
But why

When things get hard
Like a child
I can’t hold back my tears
Even though I’m a grown up now

After time passes
Will I be able to understand?
After time passes
Will I become a true grown up?

It’s strange, in the past
(I used to always say I want to be grown up)

I may seem like I’m all grown up
But I’m still a soft-hearted child
Tears, please stop

Don’t scold me too much
Let me just cry for today
Please don’t let go of my hand till then

When I become a grown up
When I grow a little taller

I thought I’d really be happy
But why

When things get hard
Like a child
I can’t hold back my tears
Even though I’m a grown up now
