When The World Was Only As Big As My Neighborhood
Life was so very sweet when I was small.
And my world was as only as large as my neighborhood.
And if I knew anything, I thought I knew it all.
Sure there was darkness and my poor ma got beat;
But still I had some awesome freedoms,
And I got to run far and wide,
when my little feet hit the street!
I can see the sun and hear the birds,
and still see those little orange butterflys;
And I remember when our beaches were wide and clean.
Back then I was such a tomboy,
I usually just ran with the guys.
I didnít regret anything that happened to me,
I had nothing to compare my life with -
And I just thought what was, was what had to be.
Sure there were rough spots
and I grew up pretty tough.
I sure remember some sweet moments in time,
And back then - it was probably enough.
I didnít really feel like I had done without,
Till I started to travel this ole world,
And finally got to check some things out.
And you know, I would if I could -
Go back to the days of ignorant bliss-
Iíd love to go back to when the world
was only as big as my own neighborhood!
