The Eyes Of A Child
Words & Music By John M.

There Was a Time
When it didn't take too much to make me laugh
Like Bubbles in the bath, or rolling in the grass
I saw life in a way that made me smile
I saw life through the eyes of a child

Nowadays, I'm older and much wiser than before
I wait until I'm sure, I always lock the door
And I never make a move without a plan
I see life through the eyes of a man


There was a time
When it didn't take too much to make me cry
Like being told a lie, or a spitball in the eye
A time when I still trusted everyone
I saw life through the eyes of the young
Nowadays, I know things aren't always as they seem to be
I know, nothin' comes for free, well that won't bother me
Today you will not find me unprepared
I see life through the eyes of the scared


And nowadays,
My prayer to the Lord is by and by
As long as I survive, keep the child in me alive
Remind me Lord to stop once in a while,
And see life through the eyes of a child
