Queen Going Back Lyrics

Last updated: 04/14/2013 10:38:03 AM

Words and music by Gerry Goffin and Carole King

I think I'm going back
To the things I learnt 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't play the game of life to win
I can recall a time
When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend
And now I think I've got
A lot more than just my toys to lend
Now there's more to do
Than watch my sailboat glide
And every day 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
Then everyone debates
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 going back

I feel the same. So sad. But everytime i try thinking that it was such happy time. when he was young, creative, full of power. the larry lurex version of this song is the best among many others :)

this song is just so simple, but so beautiful, I wish it was that easy to go back...i'm sure everybody who loves you Freddie wishes that was possible, and bring you back. i get so sad everytime i hear this song that i can stop crying :<

i cry everytime i hear this song.
he sounds so young and.. well, alive.
on top of that, when they play it at the end of mother love,
it just rips my heart out.
