Every child’s favorite pastime

Every spare second spent there

Rocking back and forth, now back again

Pump, higher, harder go into the sky

We feel like we can fly, maybe if we try.

Ready! Set! Jump!

And for a few moments we can

Fully airborne, then gravity hits and we crash.

Fall to the ground, no pain-- just exhilarating

We get back on to go again

That feeling of being Invincible.

As we grow older and out of childhood

Memories are the only thing we have.

Once in a while we sneak back out

Just for a few minutes

We are unbeatable once more.

Soaring, flying, higher we go.

The bells ring, our time is up now

We must return to the way things were.

Days go by, nothing changes

Months pass and we are still the same

Waiting, hoping, wishing we could sway.

Years go on and we come home again

Just for a visit, we are there

Both you and me, reunited at the park

We run to the swings.

Knowing our fun is fleeting

But we play anyway

Having the time of our lives

We swing, jump, land

Nothing has changed all around us

But inside we will wait for another chance
