Childhood's End? (Live In London)

Childhood's End? (Live In London)

Marillion

And it was morning
And I found myself mourning
For a childhood that I thought had disappeared
I looked out the window

And I saw a magpie in the rainbow
The rain had gone
I'm not alone
I turned to the mirror

I saw you, the child, that once loved
The child before they
Broke his heart
Our heart, the heart that I believed was lost

Hey, you, surprised?
More than surprised
To find the answers to the questions
Were always in your

Own eyes
Do you realize that you give it on back to her?
But that would only be retraced in all the problems that you ever knew
So untrue

For she's got to carry on with her life
And you've got to carry on with yours
So I see it's me
I can do anything

And still the child
'Cause the only thing misplaced was direction
And I found direction
There is no childhood's end

There is no childhood's end
'Cause you are my childhood friend
'Cause you are my childhood friend
Oh, lead me on

Hey, you, you've survived
Now you've arrived
To be reborn in the shadow of the magpie
Now you realize that you've got to get out of here

You've found the leading light of destiny
Burning in the ashes of your memory
You want to change the world
You'd resigned yourself to die a broken rebel

But that was looking backward
Now you've found the light
You, the child that once loved
The child before they broke his heart

The heart, the heart that I believed was lost
So it's me I see, I can do anything
I'm still the child
'Cause the only thing misplaced was direction

And I found direction
There is no childhood's end
There is no childhood's end
There is no childhood's end

I am your childhood friend
Oh, lead me on
