In every childhood memory


(Piano INTRO)
(Strings BEGIN)
(All Instruments BEGIN)

The innocence lost
In the dangerous playground
With bright colours and
Swings that take you higher

You see what you saw
But, you merrily go around
You hop and scotch
As you swing between friendly dangers
And, then my sweet baby
You slid down into the arms of the stranger

(Guitar SOLO)

A smile that made my life
That smile that loved the breeze
You smiled as you smelt the sweet rain falling

Your mischievous laughter
That twinkle in your eyes
As you ran towards me
And held me like you'd never leave me ever

(CHORUS)
So, I say to all
In every childhood memory
There is a garden
With blushing flowers
The stream that likes to be teased
The butterfly you want to chase

In every childhood memory
There is always a garden
With trees that shadow you
And, birds that sing for you
I am here for you
And, I shall be forever

(All Instruments BREAK)
(Piano SOLO)

In ever childhood memory
There is always a garden

(All instruments START)

All I see now is
An empty swing that sways
By the winds' ghostly arms

(Background Vocals)
Away from me

I have counted to 10
And, I have looked for you for days
Remember, I am seeking
It's time you stop hiding

Where are you?

(All Instruments STOP)

COP - "911 How can I help you?
Man - Ah, man! Ah, you need to get here right away. Man! 
COP - Please state your emergency 
Man - F*** man! You need to get here right now! There is a body here man! 
COP - Calm down sir! Give me your address. Sir, calm down! Can you identify the body?
Man - It is girl man! May be around 4 years old...

U addressed some really scary issues that kids face today...from kidnapping to murders and that innocence never get to grow up....Those people who r involved in child crimes really fury me....I mean atleast spare the innocent heart ....

I loved the way u talked about childhood beauty and yet touched the chord of caution...lovely !

A game of Hide n Seek gone very, very wrong here!
Innocence totally lost-
Seemed innocent until the 911 part!

An 11 year old dissappeared out of her bedroom in New Hamphire next to the Canadian border a couple days ago. I'm praying that she return safely. Innocence intact-

The poor girls body was found in a river near a Dam yesterday... Foul play is likely. So hard to understand why these things happen!
