MACKLEMORE feat RYAN LEWIS, ED SHEERAN - Growing Up (Sloane's Song)

This single was released on 5 Aug, 2015.
I loved the production and the message of this song. The background felt really touching and the passion in his voice made it even better. The way that he sang the verses and the brilliant hook by Ed changed the whole image of the song. It made it so beautiful and excellent to listen to. What do you think? Comment below.

[INTRO] E B A B A
[VERSE]
      E
They say boys don't cry
B           A                 B
But your daddy shed a lot of tears
     E                        B
They say I should be a strong man
    A
But baby, I'm still filled with fear
      E
Sometimes I don't know who I am
B           A
Sometimes I question why I'm here
B E                     B
I just wanna be a good dad
       A
Will I be? I have no idea
        E                  B
They say girls shouldn't be tough
     A                               B
And moms should raise their kids at home
      E                          B
But baby, I know that that isn't true
             A
Cause your momma's the toughest person I know
     E
I wanna raise you to be like her
        B                A                       B
And watch you show the world how to do it on your own
       E                        B
I'm still tryna figure out who I am
                        A
I don't wanna mess this up or do this wrong

E                           B
I'm gonna be there for your first breath
A                                     B
I don't know if I'll be there for your first step
E                             B         A
I can promise you that I'll try to work less
A
But the tour's routed, and I got this album
E                             B
Put in so many hours, and I just want the outcome
A                                              B
To be something that I can look back and I can be proud of
 E                              B
Don't wanna be a dad that's living in FaceTime
A
But I've got a world to sing to and you at the same time
E                             B
I won't spoil you, you can trust that
A                             B
For your sweet 16, you get a bus pass
E                      B
Had your heart broken? Been there, done that
A
I love you and I can't give you enough of that
E
Get back to community that raised you up
      A
Read Langston Hughes, I suggest "A Raisin in the Sun"
    E                 Ab
Listen to Sam Cooke, a change gon' come
             A
You put the work in, don't worry about the praise, my love
E                                                      A
Don't try to change the world, find something that you love
A             B
And do it every day
E                           B
Do that for the rest of your life
A
And eventually, the world will change

[CHORUS]
        E         B        A
I'll be patient, one more month
        B          E    Ab          A
You'll wrap your fingers round my thumb
E                  B     A                B
Times are changing, I know, but who am I if
          E      Ab    A
I'm the person you become
A                   E        A
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
                    E            A
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
A                 E
I'm still growing up

[VERSE]
E
I recommend that you read The Alchemist
A
Listen to your teachers, but cheat in calculus
E
Tell the truth, regardless of the consequence
A                         E
And every day, give your momma a compliment
E
Take your girl to the prom
B               A
But don't get too drunk hanging out the limo
B   E                              Ab
Slow dance with your woman in your arms
                    A
Sneak around after but boy, you better tiptoe
               F#m             Abm
Don't wake your mom up, do yoga, learn 'bout karma
  A                     B
By god, believe the dogma
E                                           B     A
The quickest way to happiness? Learning to be selfless
A                                B
Ask more questions, talk about yourself less
E                   Ab
Steady David Bowie, James Bowen and 2Pac
A
Watch the sun set with best friends from a rooftop
E                          B
Wear a helmet, don't be stupid
A                            B
Jaywalk, but look before you do it
      E                           Ab
If it snows, go outside, build a jump, get some help
           A
Get a sled, thrash the hill with your friends till it melts

[CHORUS]
        E         B        A
I'll be patient, one more month
        B          E    Ab          A
You'll wrap your fingers round my thumb
E                  B     A                B
Times are changing, I know, but who am I if
          E      Ab    A
I'm the person you become
A                   E        A
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
                    E            A
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
A                 E
I'm still growing up

Times are changing, I know, but who am I if
          E      Ab    A
I'm the person you become
A                   E        A
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
                    E            A
If I'm still growing up, up, up, up
A                 E
I'm still growing up
