Please don't tell me anymore
There's a weight in your eyes
And it's weigh on my heart
Where have the children gone?
We were innocent once
But that was so long ago

Have we lost our way back home?
We have made mistakes I know
I know

Don't tell me of better days
There's a memory I have
Could be something I read
Of laughter and cheap guitars
In a house full of friends
Could've been one of ours
They stayed up and loved the stars
Can't remember the rest
Just a few parts

Have we lost our way back home?
We have made mistakes I know
I know

I think they lost something that they miss
I wanna find that book
Dust it off and read it again
There was hope in the end

Have we lost our way back home?
We have made mistakes I know
I know

We were braver still when we were young
And when we were young
We spoke in tongues

    We were so young and innocent. We did not know how to do wrong. We follow what we see but not knowing it is wrong. Then we must realize it isn't to late to change. The book is the bible that we leave on the shelf with dust. We did speak in tongues in God presence. Just remember the better days won't bring back our innocence again. We must believe in God just as a child.
