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
