And it was morning.
And I found myself mourning
For a childhood that I thought had disappeared
I looked out the window,
And I saw a magpie in the rainbow, the rain had gone
I'm not alone, I turned to the mirror,
I saw you, the child, that once loved
The child before they broke his heart,
Our heart, the heart that I believed was lost.

Hey you, surprised? More than surprised,
To find the answers to the questions,
Were always in your own eyes
Do you realize that you could've gone back to her?
But that would only be retraced in all the problems that you ever knew,
So untrue.
For she's got to carry on with her life,
And you've got to carry on with yours

So I see it's me, I can do anything
And I'm still the child,
'Cause the only thing misplaced was direction
And I found direction
There is no Childhood's End
There is no Childhood's End
'Cause you are my childhood friend
'Cause you are my childhood friend
Oh lead me on.

Hey you, you've survived
Now you've arrived,
To be reborn in the shadow of the magpie
Now you realize, that you've got to get out of here
You've found the leading light of destiny,
Burning in the ashes of your memory
You want to change the world
You'd resigned yourself to die a broken rebel,
But that was looking backward
Now you've found the light.

You, the child that once loved,
The child before they broke his heart
Our heart, the heart that I believed was lost
So it's me I see, I can do anything
I'm still the child
'Cause the only thing misplaced was direction, and I found direction
There is no childhood's end
There is no childhood's end
There is no childhood's end
I am your childhood friend
Oh.. Lead me on.
