when i was a child lyrics – le sport

when i was a child
i went into my room
i spent too much time
in my room when i was young

the world was like a dream
the world was in my mind
and i would call the shots
in my mind when i was young

but as the world turned
it forced me off the ground
to step outside my room
and have a look around

but the air is much too thin
and i begin to understand
that the days when i was king
are nowhere to be found

i see other kings and queens
they’re way across town
but no one talked to me
until i became nineteen

now i’m twenty-three
and it still appears to me
that i’d been better off
if i’d died at nineteen

now i like to ride the bus
and in the bus i’m safe
i’ve been riding for a while
and i don’t want to get of

cause on each bus stop
the doors will open up
and when the cold wind reaches me
my temperature will drop

and i will surely die
the day that i get off
cause nothing is like it seems
and it will be the end of me

i went into a state
of academic rage
i wanted for my face
to be on books one day

now i want my songs to play
on the dance floor every day
and on the radio every day
is where i want my songs to play
