I Don't Wanna Grow Up

"Well, God bless your crooked little heart,
St. Louis got the best of me
I miss your broken-china voice
How I wish you were still here with me
Well, you build it up, you wreck it down
You burn your mansion to the ground
When there's nothing left to keep you here,
When you're falling behind in this big blue world
Oh you got to Hold on, hold on, You got to hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here
You got to hold on"
- Tom Waits, Hold On


  1. I love Tom Waits. He's the perfect choice for this kind of thing.

  2. Oooh! I love him, too! Have you ever heard his version of "Somewhere (There's a Place for Us)"? Haunting. Gorgeous. But I do also love "Hold On."

    This was cool, Marisa. I want to do it too, but now I'd have to think of someone I'd pick BESIDES Tom Waits.
