Name of Song: Maybe it was puberty

It just happened,
I don’t know how it did,
One day I couldn’t remember why
I felt no more a kid.

Maybe it was puberty,
Things going on inside
Of me and my own body
I cried but gee I tried.

I know I took it personally,
Probably a mistake,
I knew it was a body thing,
But its pain a constant ache.

Chorus
Such an endless problem,
Scars that never end,
I really never understood
why it seemed so hard to blend.
They call it growing up in life,
You’d think I would have learned,
That bodies are not spiritual beings
And their purpose is to spurn.

Bridge
No one ever explains to you,
Your body is not YOU,
Just separate yourself from certain
things it wants to do.
It needs you to just stay alive,
That’s proven clear at death,
But we never seem to learn this fact
until its final breath.
