Lyrics

MY NEW RETREAT

EIGHT YEARS OLD I RIDE MY BIKE TO SCHOOL
MY POP HE'S PUSHING FROM THE SIDE
RESTLESS BOY I THOUGHT I KNEW IT ALL
THAT MAN HE'S STILL THERE
STANDING PUSHING BY MY SIDE

SAYING YOU JUST ARRIVED
IT'S THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

CHORUS:
AND ITS ONLY DOWN THE STREET
BUT ITS FAR ENOUGH MY NEW RETREAT
IT'S THE NEXT PHASE
THE SEQUEL TO MY YOUNGER DAYS
GROWING UP
IS FOR KIDS DON'T LIKE TO PLAY NO MORE

GRADUATION DAY I LOST MY HEAD
SO BEGAN THE RACE TO STAY AHEAD
ALL MY FRIENDS THEY WENT AWAY THAT YEAR
SOME THINGS CHANGES
BUT THE PHONE STILL WORKS BOTH WAYS MY DEAR

AND ARE YOU STILL ALIVE?
IT'S THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!

CHORUS:
ITS ONLY DOWN THE STREET
BUT ITS FAR ENOUGH MY NEW RETREAT
IT'S THE NEXT PHASE
THE SEQUEL TO MY YOUNGER DAYS
GROWING UP
IS FOR KIDS DON'T LIKE TO PLAY NO MORE

BRIDGE:
I SAW YOU STARING OUT YOUR WINDOW
WATCHING THE LEAVES AS THEY TURNED GOLD
MARKING THE SEASONS
WATCHING THEM GET COLD
WHY DON'T YOU GO ON BACK TO YOUR NEW HOME
