Goin' Back

I think I'm goin' back
to the things I learned so well in my youth
I think I'm returning to
the days when I was young enough to know the truth

Now there are no games to only pass the time
No more electric trains, no more trees to climb
Thinking young and growing older is no sin
and I can play the game of life to win

I can recall a time
when I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend
Now I think I've got
a lot more than just my toys to lend
Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
and every day can be my magic carpet ride

A little bit of freedom is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back

A little bit of courage is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back
