Goin Back Lyrics by Dusty Springfield

Goin Back Lyrics

    (gerry goffin & carole king)

    I think i'm goin' back
    To the things
    I learned so well
    In my youth

    I think i'm returning to
    Those days
    When i was young enough
    To know the truth

    Now there are no games
    To only pass the time
    No more colouring books
    No christmas bells to chime

    But thinking young
    And growing older
    Is no sin
    And i can play
    The game of life to win

    I can recall the time
    When i wasn't ashamed
    To reach out to a friend
    And now i think i've got
    A lot more than
    A skipping rope to lend

    Now there's more to do
    Than watch my sailboat glide
    And everyday can be
    My magic carpet ride
    And i can play hide and seek with my fears
    And live my days instead of counting my years

    Let everyone debate the true reality
    I'd rather see the world the way it used to be
    A little bit of freedom's
    All we lack
    So catch me if you can
    I'm goin' back
