Wonders Of The Younger

Album: Wonders Of The Younger (2010)
  • Race-cars and spaceships and carnival rides
    Ghosts in the graveyard, they come out at night
    These are the wonders of the younger

    Daydreams of castle and sad 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

    Walk in the plank of an old pirate ship
    With a fistful of gold and 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 Writer/s: SEAN MCCONNELL, SEAN MICHAEL MCCONNELL, TOM HIGGENSON
