When We Were Young

Skipping

When we were young time seemed to stand still

As it was on our side

And filling days with play was an endless movie

Over and over in rewind

But another day older and another step wiser

Growing and learning while play in motion

With the notion it would go on forever

When we were young life was a breeze

Flowing with the wind while at play

It may have been the best course ever yet

Time and time we forget the days when worry was a passing thought

And freedom was ours to hold

When the days were long and nights were short

Dreams were endless thoughts of pleasure

When we were young we sang it with a beat

Drummed it like the heart

And played it as if it would go on forever

Over and over we hopscotched it across the pavement

Skipped it over the rope

Clapped it when the ball bounced

With a rhythmic beat

When we were young time seemed to stand still

As it was on our side

And filling days with play was an endless movie
