Growing up

I might not be old enough to drive by myself or have a boyfriend
In your opinion.
But I am getting older, 
I'm planning for college,
And thinking about my future,
Even if yup don't wanna believe it,
I'm growing up.

I'm making my own decisions,
And my own mistakes,
You still need to worry about me,
But for different reasons,
Because I'm growing up,
And you have to start letting go.

You want me to go here,
You want me to choose this,
But what if I don't want to?
Don't my feelings matter?
I don't want to break your heart,
But I have to be the one to make the decisions,
To make the mistakes.
I'm almost grown up,
And your almost letting go.

I'm going here,
And I'm doing this.
I've made my decision,
Now I have to see if it was a mistake.
Your proud and your sad.
Proud of the person I have become.
And sad of letting me go,
Because I am grown up,
And you have let go.
