Strawbs – When You Were A Child lyrics

When you were a child you were a friend of mine
And I loved you in my way
But though we grew apart, and I lost touch with you
It still seems like yesterday
I haven't seen you in a long time
Oh, but I bet you look the same way you always did
When you were a child you were a friend of mine
And I loved you in my way.

When you were a child you used to paint for me
And I loved you in my way
In time the paintings faded and were set aside
They have now been thrown away
I haven't seen you in a long time
Oh but I bet you look the same way you always did
When you were a child you used to paint for me
And I loved you in my way.

When you were a child you used to laugh for me
And I loved you in my way
But as the laughs turned silver they cost too much
You were far too grown to play
Though I hadn't seen you in a long time
Oh I just knew you'd look the same way you always did
When you were a child you used to laugh for me
And I loved you in my way.
