Misplaced Childhood

And it was morning

And I found myself mourning,

For a childhood that I thought had disappeared

I looked out the window

And I saw a magpie in the rainbow, the rain had gone

I’m not alone, I turned to the mirror

I saw you, the child, that once loved

The child before they broke his heart

Our heart, the heart that I believed was lost

Hey you, surprised? More than surprised

To find the answers to the questions

Were always in your own eyes

Do you realise that you give it on back to her?

But that would only be retraced in all the problems that you ever knew

So untrue

For she’s got to carry on with her life

And you’ve got to carry on with yours

So I see it’s me, I can do anything

And I’m still the child

‘Cos the only thing misplaced was direction

And I found direction

There is no childhood’s end

You are my childhood friend, lead me on

Hey you, you’ve survived. Now you’ve arrived

To be reborn in the shadow of the magpie

Now you realise, that you’ve got to get out of here

You’ve found the leading light of destiny, burning in the ashes of your memory

You want to change the world

You’d resigned yourself to die a broken rebel

But that was looking backward

Now you’ve found the light

You, the child that once loved

The child before they broke his heart

Our heart, the heart that I believed was lost

So it’s me I see, I can do anything.

I’m still the child

‘Cos the only thing misplaced was direction

And I found direction

There is no childhood’s end

I am your childhood friend, lead me on
