    Childhood Gone

    Once I was a kid with light in my eyes
    And hope in my heart
    But as I got older, that all began to fall apart
    Sunny days became shorter
    Dark nights grew longer
    My happiness got weaker
    But my sadness became stronger

    Once I was a kid who didn't care about what other people thought
    No insecurities
    Now I'm judge for the way I look
    I have plenty of worries

    Once I was a kid who had a vivid imagination
    I used to pretend I was off in space
    Staring up at the night sky
    Seeing the vast patterns of the bright stars in each constellation
    Day by day is farther away from childhood and closer to the age of accountability

    My childhood may be gone but I'm never leaving the memories behind
    I'm much older now but I can't help it if those memories ever come back to mind

    Once I was a kid with light in my eyes
    And hope in my heart
    But as I got older, that all began to fall apart
