I want to go home,
Go back to my childhood,
No longer to roam,
I wish only I could.

Go back to my childhood,
To see all my friends,
Was it really so good,
When we made our plans.

No longer to roam,
Nor have any worries,
I was not alone,
Want to relive the joys.

I wish only I could,
Go back for a while,
I am not sure I should,
I just want to smile.
