Going Back


Words and music by Gerry Goffin and Carole King

I think I'm going back

To the things I learnt 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't play the game of life to win

I can recall a time

When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend

And now I think I've got

A lot more than just my toys to lend

Now there's more to do

Than watch my sailboat glide

And every day 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

Then everyone debates

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
