Going Back Songtext
Going Back

Johnny Logan

By: G. Goffin & C. King

I think I'm goin' back

To the things I learned 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 comic book, no Christmas bells to chime

But thinking young and growing older is no sin

And I can play the game of life to win

I can recall the time

When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend

Now I think I've got

A lot more than a comic book 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

Let everyone debate

The true reality

I gotta see the world the way it use to be

A little bit of freedom is all we lack

So catch me if you can

I'm goin' back
