Lyrics

I know we'll never grow old together
Cause you'll never grow old to me
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I'm scared cause that means I'm a little bit soft
But don't beat yourself up, Bonnie
It wasn't just the sun that I was hiding from
We were messed up kids who taught ourselves how to live
And I'm still scared that I'm not good enough
I've always felt like a monster
Long before I was bit
But only seen as a monster
Let's just say I'm used to it
And I grew tough cause love it only hurt me back
But loving you is a good problem to have
And I'm used to that
But I could get used to this
Yeah, I'm used to that
But I could get used to this
And I know we'll never grow old together
Cause you'll never grow old to me
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I love that it means I'm a little bit soft
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I love, that it means
I'm a little bit soft

Before the episode dropped, an extended version of the song featuring artist King Princess was released as promotional material. This version was also used in the trailer for "Obsidian".

I know we'll never grow old together
Cause you'll never grow old to me
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I'm scared cause that means I'm a little bit soft
So don't beat yourself up, Bonnie
It wasn't just the sun that I was hiding from
We were messed up kids who taught ourselves how to live
And I'm still scared that I'm not good enough
I've always felt like a monster
Long before I was bit
Only seen as a monster
Let's just say I'm used to it
And I grew tough cause love it only hurt me back
But loving you is a good problem to have
And I'm used to that
But I could get used to this
For the record, I stole your sweater
Cause I just wanted you close to me
I thought shaking knees only meant I was weak
Just a little too soft
So don't beat yourself up, Bonnie
It wasn't just the sun I was hiding from
We were messed up kids who taught ourselves how to live
I'm still scared that I'm not good enough
Always felt like a monster
Long before I was bit (yeah)
Only seen as a monster
Let's just say I'm used to it (it)
And I grew tough cause love it only hurt me back
But loving you is a good problem to have
And I'm used to that but I could get used to this (Oh)
Yeah, I'm used to that but I could get used to this
And we'll never grow old together
Cause you'll never grow old to me
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I love that it means I'm a little bit soft
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I love, that it means
I'm a little bit soft
I'm a little bit soft

Unofficial Lyrics

I know we'll never grow old together
Cause you'll never grow old to me
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I'm scared cause that means I'm a little bit soft
But don't beat yourself up, Bonnie
It wasn't just the sun that I was hiding from
We were messed up kids who taught ourselves how to live
And I'm still scared that I'm not good enough
I've always felt like a monster
Long before I was bit
Only seen as a monster
Let's just say I'm used to it
And I grew tough cause love it only hurt me back
But loving you is a good problem to have
And I'm used to that
But I could get used to this
And for the record, I stole your sweater
Just wanted you close to me
I thought shaking knees only meant I was weak
And just a little too soft
If we put away the armour, Bonnie
We're gonna hurt eachother a little sometimes
I'd rather brave the fall than never feel it at all
It's not easy but it's worth the fight
I've always felt like a monster
Long before I was bit (yeah)
Only seen as a monster
Let's just say I'm used to it (it)
And I grew tough cause love it only hurt me back
But loving you is a good problem to have
And I'm used to that but I could get used to this (Oh)
Yeah, I'm used to that but I could get used to this
And I know we'll never grow old together
Cause you'll never grow old to me
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I love that it means I'm a little bit soft
You're the pink in my cheeks
And I love, that it means
I'm a little bit soft
