It's amazing after all I've been through, I'm still a child at heart

You would think that the things I've seen and heard would completely tare me apart

Still, I keep an open mind like a child often does

Whe a person asks me why I'm not letting go of that, I ttell them just because

So many people out there refuse to let the child they used to be in

Probably because life gets in the way and they don't know where to begin

Me, I swing, I jump rope, anything that brings me back to a time when I was free

When I wasn't thinking "Hey, this is the way it's meant to be."

Sometimes my imagination still gets the best of me

But when I think about giving into reality, it has me on bended knee

I really don't want to give into the cold reality's of it all

Because I know I'll cry, I know I'll hate, and in the end I'll fall

So I keep myself in a time where things were easy and fun

And people aren't saying to me "Some things can't be undone."

But if I can stay in a safe world for one more minute, it was worth it, I'm sorry to say

And maybe things will turn around and I'll be all grown up someday

But I'm going to hold on to the child in me and not give up without a fight

Because that child is happy and can sleep all through the night

Maybe I'm just a scared little girl who is stuck in the past

But I would give a arm and a leg to let this feeling last

Please don't hate me because the child in me would never understand why

And I know if you see this little girl, you wouldn't dare make her cry

Love me, hold me, tell me it will be alright

And tell me baby girl, don't you give up without a fight

I love you for who you are and that's all you have to be

When you think that way, you can be anything, come and play with me
