"When I Was A Child" as written by Robert Plant, Michael Pearson, Stephen Charles Jones and James Patrick Page....
I was reaching for the future
Slowly floating in the blue
When I was a boy
I dreamed a dream of you

I danced upon the tree top
I drifted with the stream
When I was a child
I held you in my dreams

Oh-oh-oh oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh oh
Oh

Once I was a soldier
In my castle strong
Oh I stood so tall then
I could do no wrong
Innocence and slumber
When I was a boy

I was walking with a stranger
He left without a trace
When I was a boy
I slept at Heaven's gate

Once I was a soldier
In my castle strong
Oh I stood so tall then
I could do no wrong
Innocence and slumber
When I was a boy

Once I was a soldier
In my castle strong
Oh I stood so tall then
I could do no wrong
Innocence and slumber
Oh, when I was, when I was, when I was
When I was, when I was, when I was, oh oh oh oh, ooh yeah

Once I was a soldier
In my castle strong
Oh I stood so tall then
I could do no wrong
Innocence and slumber
When I was a boy

Yes, you know and so I wonder
through it grows and grows
when i was a boy
I was a boy
I was a boy
