James Morrison "Once When I Was Little" lyrics

Once When I Was Little

I was the one who would always jump in firstI didn't think twice to look behindGot such a good feeling just from playing in the dirtOnce when I was little

We could build a rocket, fly to the moonLeave Tuesday morning, be back for noonAnd there wasn't nothing, nothing that we couldn't doOh, once when I was little, once when I was little

Yeah, I could dream more thenI could believed more thenThat the world could only get better

I could be free more thenI could pretend more thenThat this life could only show me good timesOnce when I was little

There was a time when I trusted everyoneThere was no place that I would not goSpend all day on the hillside next to the barley mowOh, once when I was little, yeah, once when I was little

Yeah, I could dream more thenAnd I believe more thenThat the world could only get better

I could be free more thenI could pretend more thenThat this life could only show me good timesOnce when I was little

I used to feel so strongEven when they'd tell me, tell me I was wrongThat I can't live in a magic world'Cause it's time for me to grow upAnd I've got to live like the rest of themWell, I know things have been lost

Oh, I could pretend more thenAnd I could believe more thenThat the world, it would only get better

Oh, I could believe more then, yes I couldAnd I could pretend more thenThat this life, it could only show me good timesOnce when I was little

So here comes the next one, next in lineStay as young you can, for the longest time'Cause those days flew byLike a breeze just passing throughOnce when I was little
