Jackson Browne

I Thought I Was a Child

It’s such a clever innocence with which you do your sorcery
As if somehow the years just bow and let that young girl go free
I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
I thought I knew where I was going until I heard your laughter flowing
And came upon the wisdom in your eyes

I’ve spent my whole life running ’round
Chasing songs from town to town
Thinking I’d be free so long as I never let love slow me down
So lonely and so wild until you turned and smiled
By now I should have long been gone
But here I am still looking on
As if I didn’t know which way to run

It’s such a clever innocence with which you show myself to me
As if you know how it feels to never be who you wanted to be
I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
I thought that I was free but I’m just one more prisoner of time
Alone within the boundaries of my mind
I thought I was a child
