    Lyrics

    back in the schoolyard life wasn't so hard
    but I couldn't wait to leave
    I left school at sixteen, tired of the routine
    money is what I need
    I got into the job line, but there's no work for my kind
    no school tie and no degree, no chance for me

    I found some employment, but still no enjoyment
    I worked in a factory
    I picked up my wages, fhe first time in ages
    it don't seem enough to me
    the years go by in slow time
    became a man in no time
    you came along, the time was right
    turned on the light

    gonna love my life away
    I wish I could (I wish I could)
    girl, you're leadin' me astray
    I've been misunderstood (been misunderstood)
    oh oh, I'm in my second childhood, oh oh

    back on the breadline, seemed like a long time
    the waiting was all in vain
    I spent my vacation down at the station
    waving to all the trains
    after this deep depression, I shoulda' learned my lesson
    I found you in the nick of time, who'll buy the wine

    gonna love my life away
    I wish I could (I wish I could)
    girl, you're leadin' me astray
    I've been misunderstood (been misunderstood)
    oh oh, I'm in my second childhood, oh oh

    it's hard to act my age now, I'm going through that stage now
    you make me feel good, you make me feel good
    now I don't feel so grown up, 'cause everytime you phone up
    you make me feel good, you make me feel good

    (conversation)

    gonna love my life away
    I wish I could (I wish I could)
    girl, you're leadin' me astray
    I've been misunderstood (been misunderstood)
    oh oh, I'm in my second childhood, oh oh
    I'm in my second childhood
    yea-ee-ya
    I'm in my second childhood, whoa oh
