Grown-up games (Audio)

Children fly in model planes 
and ride on old electric trains,
play at being musketeers -- that's children's games
Then, as time goes by they find
they've changed and outgrown their mind
Now they play with pain and tears -- that's grown-up games. 

Ooh! To be a child again...
Ooh! To think that wild again...

I used to play Monopoly
Now she owns all the property
I shot the dice, and now I'm lost at grown-up games
I've move from happiness to pain
I never wanna play again
Inside I cannot hold the post of grown-up games.

Ooh! To be a child again... 
Ooh! To be allowed to think that wild again...

Here am I, broken-hearted
ever since the day we parted
When I was young and things went wrong for me,
I could always sit and cry on my mama's knee.

Hey, hey, hey, hey...

If only mama could have stayed
But mama's gone, and I'm afraid
I'd trade my soul for one more day of childrens' games
How long can I live for the past?
It hurts, but now I know at last:
We are just little children |: playing grown-up games :|
