Growing Her Wings Lyrics

by Lauren Alaina

Brothers in the backyard diggin in the dirt
Mamas in the kitchen in an old t-shirt
Daddys diesels coming up the street
And shes in her bedroom growing her wings

Ready to Run in her headphones
Pretty in pink on all ten toes
Nose in a Cosmo magazine
All the junk mama says, shes too young to read
Little do they know shes growing her wings

They got her whole life on lockdown
Doing time behind her bedroom door
I guess its alright for right now
But outside her window theres so much
More room for running and space to discover
A whole wide world to see
Shes dreaming about the girl shes gonna be
Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings

The neighbor boy taught her how to French kiss
And daddys got eyes in the back of his head
He said, no dating til youre 18
Now shes in her room grounded, growing her wings

They got her whole life on lockdown
Doing time behind her bedroom door
I guess its alright for right now
But outside her window theres so much
More room for running and space to discover
A whole wide world to see
Shes dreaming about the girl shes gonna be
Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings

She wants to fly and never look down
But tonight shes tucked inside a tiny little town
In a little twin bed all safe and sound

And theres so much
More room for running and space to discover
A whole wide world to see
Shes dreaming about the girl that shes gonna be
Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings
Growing her wings
