my lyricsbox
back in the schoolyard life wasn't so hard
but I couldn't wait to leave
I left school at sixteen, tired of the routine
money is what I need
I got into the job line, but there's no work for my kind
no school tie and no degree, no chance for me

I found some employment, but still no enjoyment
I worked in a factory
I picked up my wages, fhe first time in ages
it don't seem enough to me
the years go by in slow time
became a man in no time
you came along, the time was right
turned on the light

gonna love my life away
I wish I could (I wish I could)
girl, you're leadin' me astray
I've been misunderstood (been misunderstood)
oh oh, I'm in my second childhood, oh oh

back on the breadline, seemed like a long time
the waiting was all in vain
I spent my vacation down at the station
waving to all the trains
after this deep depression, I shoulda' learned my lesson
I found you in the nick of time, who'll buy the wine

gonna love my life away
I wish I could (I wish I could)
girl, you're leadin' me astray
I've been misunderstood (been misunderstood)
oh oh, I'm in my second childhood, oh oh

it's hard to act my age now, I'm going through that stage now
you make me feel good, you make me feel good
now I don't feel so grown up, 'cause everytime you phone up
you make me feel good, you make me feel good

(conversation)

gonna love my life away
I wish I could (I wish I could)
girl, you're leadin' me astray
I've been misunderstood (been misunderstood)
oh oh, I'm in my second childhood, oh oh
I'm in my second childhood
yea-ee-ya
I'm in my second childhood, whoa oh
This song is from the album "Girls To Chat & Boys To Bounce".
