Kenny Loggins – When I Was A Child lyrics

When I was a child
So wild and free
Sometimes I'd stumbled
Or fall from a tree

But I didn't worry
And I didn't care
I knew that my daddy
Would always be there

Oh, he was my friend
When no one could make
Never too busy
Oh, he'd find a way

Then off we would rambled
With the wind in our hair
I knew that my daddy
Would always be there

But time has no mercy
For a growing young soul
It leaves us with memories
While it makes us grow old

I left my heart
When school days were through
With visions of freedom
Oh, when dreams do come true

I've never worried
And I've never cared
I knew that my daddy
Would always be there

One night while traveling
Word came by phone
The message was simple
You're needed at home

So once I did worry
For once I did care
I prayed that my daddy would wait for me there

Time has no mercy
For the growing young soul
It leaves us with memories
While it makes us grow old

But time has no mercy
For the growing young soul
It leaves us with memories
While it makes us grow old
While it makes us grow old
