Look me up when you're back in town
Call me up when you're kickin around
Blow the dust off the shoebox cover
And spare a smile for your long lost brother
Grow up, grow up
You can leave me here
Grow up, grow up
Now it's only fair
I'll keep the light burning in my room
And I'll never turn my back on you

Think of me every time you trip
Over your crate of long-forgotten manuscripts
Think of me every time you say
"Why can't I bring myself to throw this stuff away?"
Give up, give up
When you're lost and tired
Give up, give up
I will feed the fire
I'll keep it lit; I will see this through
And I'll never turn my back on you

You can give up, but I'm too proud
You can grow up, but I'm not allowed
You can marry anyone but me
And I'll be here when you need more than memories
Get up, get up
On some rainy night
Get up, get up
See the distant light
That's me, awake, writing in my room
I will never turn my back on you.
