Wednesday’s Written Word

“Race cars and spaceships and carnival rides,
Ghosts in the graveyard that come out at night.
These are the wonders of the younger

Daydreams of castles inside crystal balls,
While your heroes on posters stand guard on your walls.
These are the wonders of the younger

And I wonder why we just leave it all behind.
And I wonder how we could all go back right now.

Werewolves and vampires are out for the kill.
If none of them catch you, the Bogeyman will.
These are the wonders of the younger

Walking the plank of an old pirate ship,
With a fistful of gold and a kiss on your lips.
These are the wonders of the younger

And I wonder why we just leave it all behind.
And I wonder how we could all go back right now.

Click your heels, close your eyes.
Make a wish and wave goodbye.
Fly away.  It’s not too late.
Change your mind.

Now numbers and figures take up all my time.
How did this much of my life pass me by?
I miss the wonders of the younger.”

~Plain White T’s (lyrics by Tom Higgenson & Sean Mcconnell)
