Going Back

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Pearls II (1982).

I think I'm going 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 colouring 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 a time
When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend
But 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 every day can be
A magic carpet ride
And I can play hide and seek with my fears
And live my life 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 going back

I can recall
I can remember
I wasn't ashamed to reach out...
