11

Seven years old, everything was right
A table for four on a Friday night
Didn't see any signs of a dead end road
By the time I was ten everything was changing
Fell asleep every night praying
Didn't know which way to go

Momma did her best to hide her anger
And I did my best to try and save her

I was a little too young and a little too dumb to ever think the day would come
When dad would drive away and take his love with him
So I grew up fast in a whole new world
Waved goodbye to that little girl
I can see her now, innocent and seven
I wish I had never turned eleven

We moved into a smaller house
How mama did it, oh I don't know how
Never went to bed without eating
At thirteen I finally realized what it means to get on with your life
Well daddy sure did and he made it look easy

Mama did her best to hide the struggle
And I did my best to stay out of trouble

I was a little too young and a little too dumb to ever think the day would come
When dad would drive away and take his love with him
So I grew up fast in a whole new world
Waved goodbye to that little girl
I can see her now, innocent and seven
I wish I had never turned eleven

I wish that I could turn back time and tell myself it'll be alright, you're never gonna lose the light in your eyes.

I was a little too young and a little too dumb to ever think the day would come
So I grew up fast in a whole new world
Waved goodbye to that little girl
I can see her now, innocent and seven
I wish I had never turned eleven

I wish I had never turned eleven.
