07. The Child Remains

by Mike Westendorf


1. Train, train number nine, going down Chicago line
If the train falls off the track, do you want your money back
Yes… or no
Only seems like yesterday, school let out the month of May
Summer fun had finally come, dancing underneath the sun
Do you remember when, do you remember when?

Summer feels like when I was young, and the time to play had finally come - Oh it could never end
But as Autumn leaves begin to change and nothing seems to be the same - The little child remains - The child in me remains

2. Bubble gum, bubble gum, pieces in a dish of fun
Wishing I had been the one, to finally be set free
But I’ve been caught again
The end of summer chases us, we can never get enough
Looking to the distant past, time is moving way to fast
Where did it go, where did it go? - Chorus

3.The person that I used to be, is sitting right in front of me
I look into the child’s face, wondering if he’d take my place
Cause then we’d both be free
It looks like time is catching me, I’m older than I ought to be
I thought that I was finally free, but yet I still believe
The heart of a child remains, the child in me remains - Chorus

Chorus 2
The crying child in my daddy’s arms, a mother’s love that heals the harms - Time is more than memories
But as seasons change and life moves on, I’m alive and I sing this song - Because the child in me remains - The child in me remains

4. All my life I’ve tried to find, the peace I thought I left behind
Then in my Savior’s arms I find – the Child in me remains
This child of God remains.
