lyrics

The boy opens his eyes to a world so full of lies
that he can’t make heads or tails of anything.

But on his very first night his mum’s eyes glistening bright
of Eyore, Piglet and the Owl she’d sing.

He took it all to heart and played Chris Robin’s part,
running round the Hundred Acre Wood.

And don’t you wanna go back to that house on Pooh corner,
where we’d whisper, sing, and play
to warm against the cold,
and the best ones that we told were as simple as they came.

He plays the circle game as his dreams all fade away,
replaced one by one with newer tales.

And each time that he sees the forest for the trees,
he stumbles through as blind as the day he was born.

And someday when he’s old with children of his own,
he’ll sings his mother’s song each and every night.

And don’t you wanna go back to that house on Pooh corner,
where we’d whisper, sing, and play
to warm against the cold,
and the best ones that we told were as simple as they came.
