STOP THE CLOCK!
I want to stop time and start all over again.
Have no past with actions to explain.
Turn back the clock to a time long gone,
Where everything seemed right, and there was no wrong.
Turn off that chime. There are no hours.
Every moment that passes is ours, all ours!
Kicking at leaves, falling out of trees.
Wading through streams with trousers above the knees.
Pouring of rain, getting wet.
Soaked to the skin but we haven’t finished yet!
Getting into fights over nothing at all.
Learning that you don’t always win; sometimes you fall!
Did it matter? Was it not fun?
No one to tell us off for what we’ve done.
Always sunshine, at least that’s what it seemed.
Was that real, or was it just what we dreamed?
I want to stop time. Turn off that clock.
I don’t want to hear that tick, tick, tock!
