Song Description

Looking back on your younger days as a kid with family and friends and how much freedom you had and no responsibilities. What it would be like to live like that again and just being in the moment.

Story Behind the Song

Story of life with family and friends as a kid. How the summer days seemed to last forever just playing and now having grown up and seeing what it's like to be a kid through the eyes of your own kids.

To Be a Kid Again

I found an old picture of the family farm
We kids were kickin' buckets 'round grandpa's barn
We we're knee high, tree tire swinging
Not a worry 'bout making a living
Racing through acres of tall grass meadows
Days felt like forever, the land was home
Been years since that barn stood high
Now the fields are driveways and street lights

Lookin' back we had it made
Runnin' wild, every Saturday
We jumped around, sun up to sun down
Never thought it would ever end
Oh, to be a kid again

I remember that summer like it was last
Go-cart cruising till we ran out of gas
We were grounded from the start
Tearing up our neighbors yard
Sneaking out riding to the edge of town
Burnin' bike rubber, no one else around
We were rollin' through life so fast
We still had a blast

Lookin' back we had it made
Runnin' wild, every Saturday
Blazin' trails and riding the wind
Never thought it would ever end
Oh, to be a kid again

Like a summer time Sunday morning, a breath of fresh air
Up with the sun; lay down with out a care in the world

Today I see those sparks in our own kid's eyes
Christmas morning their smiles an acre wide
Laughin', screamin, and singing
We can feel the joy their bringing
I can see they'll be just like you and me
Playing 24/7, it's hard to believe
That was us not so long ago

Lookin' back we've come a long way
Livin', lovin', look what we made
I'm seeing it through the eyes of a child
I'd forgotten way back then
Reminds us how to be a kid again, Oh, to be a kid again
