Once in a while I act like a child
To feel like a kid again
It gets like a prison
In the body I'm living in

Because everyone's watching
Quick to start talking
I'm losing my innocence
Wish I were a little girl
Without the weight of the world

It would be nice to start over again
Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend
Let's play pretend

Remember the time
We had soda for wine
And got by on gratitude
The worst they could do to you
Was check your attitude

Yeah, when fights were for fun
We had water in guns
And a place we could call our own
How we lost hold of home
I guess I'll never know

It would be nice to start over again
Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend
Let's play pretend

And when it's the end
Our lives will make sense
We'll love, we'll bend
Let's play pretend

It's not going to be long
Before we're all gone
With nothing to show for them
Stop taking lives, come on
Let's all grow up again
It would be nice
To start over again
Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend

Let's play pretend

And when it's the end
Our lives will make sense
We'll love, we'll bend
Let's play pretend
