JUST WATCH THE CHILDREN

WERE ALL JUST LONELY TRAVELERS,
AND THE ROAD KEEPS US GOING ON.
WE PASS AWAY THE HOURS, DO WE
REALLY KNOW WHATS GOING ON.

SOMEHOW WE'VE ALL GROWN UP  
AND CAST THE CHILD AWAY, AND
IN OUR QUEST FOR FREEDOM WE'VE
THROWN IT ALL AWAY.

TURN TO A NEW WAY, GIVE IN TO
WHAT YOU FEEL, LET YOUR HEART
REMEMBER THE THINGS THAT ARE
REALLY REAL.

YOUR MIND IS AN AVENUE, YOUR
HEART HOLDS THE KEY, AND YOUR
SOUL BARES THE TRUTH OF THE
WAY THINGS OUGHT TO BE.


SO JUST WATCH THE CHILDREN LET
THEM SHOW YOU THE WAY, THEY'VE
GOT SO MUCH LOVE CAN'T YOU HEAR
THEM SAY.

RECALL THE FEELINGS OF THE CHILD
YOU USE TO KNOW AND GO BACK A
LIFE TIME WHERE ONLY A CHILD CAN
GO.

TO A PLACE WHERE LIFE WAS LIVING
NO MORE THAN JUST ONE DAY, AND ALL
THE KIDS YOU"VE GROWN UP WITH
JUST HELPED YOU ALONG THE WAY.

GIVE YOUR LIFE A NEW DIRECTION,
MAKE YOUR HEART AN OPEN BOOK, AND

SOUL WILL FEEL THE HEALING FROM
ALL THE PAIN YOU'VE EVER KNOWN.

SO DON'T BE JUST ANOTHER TRAVELER
WHO'S LOST ALONG THE WAY. STAND UP
FOR WHAT YOUR FEELING AND SING
ALONG THIS WAY.

TAKE YOUR SHIELDS AND ARMOR AND
PUT ALL THE SWORDS AWAY. DON'T
TEACH OUR CHILDREN WARS THE GAME
TO PLAY.

THE CHILD HE WILL MASTER, ALL THE
GAMES WE PLAY. HE'LL TAKE YOUR SIDE
ON YOUR FEELING AND NEVER LOOKS AWAY.

HE"S LOOKING UP RIGHT AT YOU, HE'S
COUNTING ON YOU, IN YOU HE SEES THE
MAN HE'LL SOME DAY GROW INTO.
