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
