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

Now there are no games to only pass the time
No more coloring books, no Christmas bells to chime
But thinking young and growing older is no sin
And I can play the game of life to win

I can recall the time
When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend
And now I think I've got
A lot more than a skipping rope to lend

Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
And everyday can be my magic carpet ride
And I can play hide and seek with my fears
And live my days instead of counting my years

Let everyone debate the true reality
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be
A little bit of freedom's all we lack
So catch me if you can I'm goin' back

Goffin, Gerry / King, Carole
