Child For A Day

(Words and Music by David Gordon and Paul Travis)

I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day

We were the children
Who sang in the morning
We were the children
Who laughed at the sun
Who listened to those
Who spoke with their wisdom
We are the ones we would say, but
We’re getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

We are the men who worry of nothing
We are the men who fight without aim
We listen to no one,
yet speak of our wisdom
We are the pawns in the game
We’re getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day
We’re getting older
As time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children, yesterday
