James McMurtry - Childish Things Lyrics

Aunt Clara kept her Bible Right next to the phone in case she needed a quote
While she talked to someone
In my memory she smiles While the blessing is said
And visions of freeze tag dance in my head
She says Iíll grow up bigIf I eat all my roast
Iíll still believe in heaven
But I wonít believe in ghosts anymore

Iíll put away childish things

Every other weekend at the age of thirteen
With my fishing pole and my Field and Stream
Ridiní back home on the Trailways bus
I looked out the window
ĎTil I saw too much
And I called my parents by their own first names
I played in the alley
But I didnít play the game anymore

I put away childish things

The wolves howl all night long
They wonít stop and they wonít go home
Beneath my window they run
Probably itíll be alright
If I keep it all locked up tight And wait Ďtil daylight comes

Now my boy goes like a house on fire
Heíll never burn out and heíll never retire
And I remember when I used to think like that
When I was young and the world was flat
But Iím forty some years old now and man I donít care
All I want now is just a comfortable chair
And to sell all my stock
And live on the coast
I donít believe in heavenBut I still believe in ghosts.
