Once in a while I act like a child
To feel like a kid again
It feels like a prison
In the body you're living in

Because everyone's watching
Greedy to start talking
I'm losing my innocence
Wish I weren't a little girl
Who felt the weight of the world

It would be nice to start over again
Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend
Let's play pretend

Remember the times
We had soda for wine
And got by on gratitude
The worst they could do to you
Was check your attitude

Yeah, when fights were for fun
We had water for guns
And a place we could call our own
How we lost hold of that
I guess I'll never know

It would be nice to start over again
Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend
Let's play pretend

And when it's the end
Our lives will make sense
And love, even
We won't have to play pretend
