NEEDTOBREATHE – Child Again Lyrics

Child Again By NEEDTOBREATHE

Yeah, I know too much, I think I know my way around
Too smart to feel a heartbreak now, too old to let my safeguards down
And where’d the wonder go? Traded magic for a measured hope
Traded dreamin’ for a worn out road, I’m tired of bein’ in control

And it calls me to light in the by and by
I wanna see your heart in my younger eyes
I wanna hear your voice in the rain and wind
I wanna know it’s safe to be a child again

I know that getting hurt is really how redemption works
My ego is a ball and chain, my instincts only make it worse
In the morning light I don’t wanna run from pain
No, I can’t afford to cheapen grace
Know the pain just means my soul’s awake

And it calls me to light in the by and by
I wanna see your heart in my younger eyes
I wanna hear your voice in the rain and wind
I wanna know it’s safe to be a child again

Well, let my past mean nothing, make it powerless
I am free like a river, I am free like a river
All my hope unbroken, you’re my innocence
I am free like a river, I’m a child again

Let my past mean nothing, make it powerless
I am free like a river, I am free like a river
All my hope unbroken, you’re my innocence
I am free like a river, I’m a child again

And it calls me to light in the by and by
I wanna see your heart in my younger eyes
I wanna hear your voice in the rain and wind
I wanna know it’s safe to be a child again
