Jump down, turn around,
Childhood games may never end
Childhood games can never send
you on your way
living every day,
on your way

Jump down, turn around
the walls of a home can only show
the world that a child can come to know

Her mother's apron was the sky,
A child, she could never know why
you have to leave the window in order to fly

Jump down turn around,
Childhood dreams seldom last
childhood seems quickly pass.
