When You Were Only Small

about

One day you wake up and realize how important everything is - God and Friday afternoons... you knew these things simply when you were only small.

lyrics

You wake up early in the morning
You say you're waiting for something
You felt, when you were only small...

When you were only small
La la la la
When you were only small
La la la la
When you were only small

It was so real you could taste it
That feeling, deep inside your soul
You felt, on Friday afternoons...

On Friday afternoons
La la la la
On Friday afternoons
La la la la
On Friday afternoons

(bridge)
Walking with you is like walking through a forest
A clearing comes, and then things become so bright
Sometimes it feels like I'm walking through a shadow
A shadow...
There can be no shadows without light
La la la la
No shadows without light
La la la la
A shadow without light

You wake up early in the morning
You say you're waiting for something
You felt, when you were only small...

When you were only small
La la la la
When you were only small
La la la la
When you were only small
