  • World is covered by our trails
    Scars we cover up with paint
    Watch them preach in sour lies
    I would rather see this world through the eyes of a child
    Through the eyes of a child

    Darker times will come and go
    Times you need to see her smile
    And mothers' hands are warm and mild
    I would rather feel this world through the skin of a child
    Through the skin of a child

    When a human strokes your skin
    That is when you let them in
    Let them in before they go
    I would rather feel alive with a childlike soul
    With a childlike soul

    Please don't leave me here... Writer/s: ALF LUND GODBOLT, AURORA AKSNES, MICHELLE LEONARD
