Jackson BrowneI Thought I Was A Child

It's such a clever innocence with which you do your sorcery As if somehow the years just bow and let that young girl go free I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled I thought I knew where I was going until I heard your laughter flowing And came upon the wisdom in your eyes Surprise I've spent my whole life running 'round Chasing songs from town to town Thinking I'd be free so long as I never let love slow me down So lonely and so wild until you turned and smiled By now I should have long been gone But here I am still looking on As if I didn't know which way to run It's such a clever innocence with which you show myself to me As if you know how it feels to never be who you wanted to be I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled I thought that I was free but I'm just one more prisoner of time Alone within the boundaries of my mind I thought I was a child
