Children are people who live in a land
Silently watching a twig as it sails

And it's real
But ooh, how it feels
This little boy greets the snow with a smile
One little fellow is friends with the wind in the willows

That my bed was a ship that I sailed through the night
That was eager and loving and shiny and bright
Where is the boy who was friends with the rainbow
Where is that shy and mysterious person

But now I stand by while my children say theirs
And I could cry that one day they'll forget
Oh, what a shame that our children should grow into peo...ple
