Childhood Lost (Lies)

even on the best days

something has to come along

and change the way I think or feel

about something or someone

I miss the endless childhood days

when all you had to worry about

was being home by dark

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

I wish we could turn back the clock

go back in time to the beauty of innocence

and endless summer days

we grow up too fast it seems

looking back in retrospect

it’s funny how all kids want

is to be adults

not knowing they’re wishing away

paradise

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

as I get older

I’d give anything

to get that beautiful innocence

back again

I guess at some point

we have to decide

whether it’s better to know everything

or know nothing

and be protected and safe

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

it hurts

to watch the little kids

grow up too fast

and envy what you have

when you know one day they’ll regret it

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

the lies start small

like Santa and the Easter Bunny

but as things get worse

the lies get bigger

your dog ran away?

no, it was run over by the trash truck

your parents just can’t handle breaking your young heart

yet

in trying to protect you

the little lies build up

until you don’t know

what’s true

and what’s not

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world

when we discover

all the secrets kept

we begin to question

if you really are better off

with a really big lie

and you doubt yourself

and everything you thought to be true

growing up

you learn how naive

and protected you were

and all the lies they told you

to protect you from this cruel world.
