Dusty Springfield - Going back
Tekst en muziek: Gerry Goffin en Carole King
(1966)






I think I’m goin’ back
To the things I learned so well
In my youth
I think I’m returning to
Those days when I was young enough
To know the truth



Now there are no games
To only pass the time
No more colouring books
No Christmas bells to chime
But thinking young and growing older is no sin
And I can play the game of life to win



I can recall the time
When I wasn’t ashamed to reach out
To a friend
And now I think I’ve got
A lot more than
A skipping rope to lend



Now there’s more to do
Than watch my sailboat glide
And everyday can be
My magic carpet ride
And I can play hide and seek with my fears
And live my days instead of counting my years



Let everyone debate the true reality
I’d rather see the world the way it used to be
A little bit of freedom’s all we lack
So, catch me if you can
I’m goin’ back
