Once in a while I act like a child To feel like a kid again It gets like a prison In the body I'm living in
 Because everyone's watching Quick to start talking
I'm losing my innocence Wish I were a little girl Without the weight of the world 
It would be nice to start over again Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend
Let's play pretend  Remember the time
We had soda for wine
And got by on gratitude The worst they could do to you
Was check your attitude 
Yeah, when fights were for fun
We had water in guns
And a place we could call our own
How we lost hold of home
I guess I'll never know

It would be nice to start over again Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend
Let's play pretend 
And when it's the end
Our lives will make sense We'll love, we'll bend
Let's play pretend 
It's not going to be long Before we're all gone
With nothing to show for them
Stop taking lives, come on
Let's all grow up again It would be nice
To start over again Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend

Let's play pretend 
And when it's the end
Our lives will make sense We'll love, we'll bend
Let's play pretend
