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
'Cause everyone's watching and 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 times we had soda for wine and we 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 gonna 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
