As a child my mind was open wide
Seeing many wonders all the time
I had to close it just to survive
At school they tried to break my soul
Doing all the things that I was told
And trying to push me in an automatic life mode

I couldn't live my life that way
It's bad for my health
Never lose your sense of wonder
Even if you lose all else

So I took a trip inside my mind
And it opened up these eyes which had been blind
I saw wonders I can't define

Then I lost control and I fell
From this earthly heaven into hell
how long i stayed there, I couldn't tell

And so I climb up on a lonely ladder
put my heart on the shelf
Never lose your sense of wonder
Even if you lose all else

Love is the key
And only love will set you free
Its all yours now, everything that you need

Go give a little piece to others
Take a piece for yourself
Never lose your sense of wonder
Even if you lose all else
You can keep your sense of wonder
Even if you lose all else

    General CommentThis is an awesome song. When I heard The Libertines' bass player had a new band I thought, "Meh." But I was pleasantly surprised when I heard this and some of their other songs.

    General CommentYou can hear his influence on the band in the early days before Pete & Carl took over writing responsibilties.

    Meaning - it's a basically a non-conformity song.
