I Was The Child

 I Was The Child
 When I was you we walked to school
 And I carried your books 'cause even then I was a fool
 But you grew up and said goodbye
 I still remember the things that made me cry
 For all too soon my story ends I found a love, now not even friends
 Tell me why loving you, loving me like you used to do
 I was the child
 I held your hand and I told you things
 And I made you believe, believe in fairy tales and diamond rings
 then all too soon my story ends I found a love,now not even friends
 Tell me why loving you, loving me like you used to do
 I was the child Ah ..... .
