Lyrics

Have you seen my childhood
I’m searching for the world that I come from
‘Cause I’ve been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities
‘Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me
People say I’m not okay
‘Cause I love such elementary things

See more lyrics

It’s been my fate to compensate
For the childhood
I’ve never known

Have you seen my childhood
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams
Of conquest and kings on the throne
Before you judge me, try hard to love me
Look within your heart then ask
Have you seen my childhood

People say I’m strange that way
‘Cause I love such elementary things
It’s been my fate to compensate
For the childhood
I’ve never known

Have you seen my childhood
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly
Before you judge me
Try hard to love me
The painful youth I’ve had
Have you seen my childhood
