  • All those places where the wild things grew
    All the fields he used to run through
    Summer stretches out for seven weeks in June
    Was there more light, more time than he ever knew?

    Now he runs as fast as he can go
    And he's hidden almost everywhere that he knows
    Chased by the terror from the boys on the street below
    He remembers a time of sunlight
    And weeds through windows

    Cause once there was meadows here greens and grass
    The night skies were only black interrupted by stars
    They were like settlers abroad from some foreign parts
    A new job, a new hope, a new start
    In a new house
    I'm going to take you there some time

    Sometimes he's walking home alone out on the street
    Memories come flooding back about
    What they used to do what things used to be
    Could he go back to unscrambling his dream?
    Could everything in his world go from grey to green?

    So I'd take you back to paradise if I only could
    I want to walk you to the lane to the river
    Through the woods
    I want to show you how it was and what we used to do
    With a new job, a new hope, a new view
    In a new house
    That's where we're going to go

    I'm crying all the way to it now

    Cause once there was meadows here greens and grass
    The night skies were only black interrupted by stars
    They were like settlers abroad from some foreign parts
    A new job, a new hope, a new start, a new way
    A new place, a new view, a new road, a new time
    A new walk, a new climb, on a new day
    In a new house

    In a new house
    I'm going to take you there
    To a new house
    That's where we're gonna go
    To a new house
    Come on back, come on back
    To a new house
    To a new house
