Take Me Back


Severance - Tom Bagshaw
Take Me Back

All grown up now
Oh yes that's what they say
Old-man thinking
Compounding with each day
Lights in my eyes
Fading quickly away
Need to go on
But doubt causes delay

Thumbing backwards
Through the pages of time
To regain understanding
Of Mother Goose's rhymes
Searching dark caverns
In the depths of my mind
To recover innocence
A part of me I must find

A tiny vessel
Adrift and lost at sea
Hell or paradise
What is it going to be
A water lily
A rose if she believes
Retain blind faith
Only blind faith achieves

Chorus:
Take me back to my younger years
To that state of mind which has no fears
When believing was all you had to do
To make your child words ring so true
Take me back to my younger years
To that state of mind which has no fears
