It's such a clever innocence
With which you do your sorcery
As if somehow your years
Would bow and let that young boy go free

Well, I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
I thought I knew where I was going
Until I heard your laughter flowing
And came upon the wisdom in your eyes, surprise

Well, I've spent my whole life running 'round
Chasing songs from town to town
Thinking I'd be free by just never
Let love slow me down

So lonely and so wild until you turned and smiled
By now I should have long been gone
But here I am holding on
As if I didn't know which way to run

Well, it's such a clever innocence
With which you show myself to me
As if you know how it feels
To never be who you wanted to be

And I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
I thought that I'd free but I'm just one more prisoner of time
Alone within the boundaries of my mind
I thought I was a child

BROWNE, JACKSON
