Intro:   G5     A5    x2
 
G5               A5
I was way - ward child
           G5
With the weight of the world
      A5
That I held deep inside
G5              A5
Life was a winding road
          G5
And I learned many things
          A5
Little ones shouldn't know


         G5            A5
But I closed my eyes
            G5
Steadied my feet on the ground
              A5
Raised my head to the sky
                G5            A5
And though time's rolled by
          G5
Still I feel like that child
        A5
As I look at the moon
G5
Maybe I grew up
    A5
A little too soon


G5      A5    x4

G5                A5
Funny how one can learn
          G5
To grow numb to the madness
        A5
And block it away
G5                A5
I left the worst unsaid
          G5
Let it all dissipate
          A5
And I try to forget


       G5                     A5
As I closed my eyes
            G5
Steadied my feet on the ground
              A5
Raised my head to the sky
                G5            A5
And though time's rolled by
          G5
Still I feel like that child
        A5
As I look at the moon
G5
Maybe I grew up
    A5
A little too soon


G5       A5     x2

F5                G5
Nearing the edge
A5
Obvious I almost
G5
Fell right over
A5           G5
A part of me
       A5
Will never be quite able
G5                 A5
To feel stable
             G5                  A5
That woman-child falling inside
G5                     A5
Was on the verge of fading
G5
Thankfully I
                A5
Woke up in time


G5            A5
Guardian angel I
       G5
Sail away on an ocean
         A5
With you by my side
G5         A5
Orange clouds roll by
         G5
They burn into your image
        A5
And you're still alive


G5            A5
But I closed my eyes
            G5
Steadied my feet on the ground
              A5
Raised my head to the sky
                G5            A5
And though time's rolled by
          G5
Still I feel like that child
        A5
As I look at the moon
G5
Maybe I grew up
    A5
A little too soon


A5       G5      x4
