Song Lyrics

We are born to this fantasy

Can`t believe what they`ve done to you

Hard to see all these years go round

Taught to hide all that`s true inside

What was it like

When you were a child?

Did you see the world

In a different light?

When the veil came down

Our destiny grew away from us

Don`t it make you weep

Can`t you see

I believe that we were meant for each other

We`ll get along somehow

If they leave us alone

Why don`t they let us be

...Just what we want to be

Don`t it make you weep, can`t you see?

I can`t believe what they`ve done to you

They`ve got you just where they wanted you

When we sleep, dream each other`s dreams

Casting memories on a sea of hope

Remember life as a child could be

Bring it back for all of use to see

What was it like

When you were a child?

How did it feel?

Did your mother treat you kind?

Mend those broken toys?

For in your heart there`s innocence

Waiting to be free, can`t you see?

When you were a child
