"Just A Kid" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
Afraid of the sun
So afraid of the sky
Touch it and taste it
But don't reach too high

Bewildered by them
Then so uncomplicated
All these feelings
Not fully created

Just a kid amongst the Autumn leaves
A kid kicking around with no worries
Just a kid searching through the debris
Just a kid acting like I used to be
Just a kid acting like I used to be

Afraid of the sun
So afraid of the sky
Touch it and taste it
But don't reach too high

Hurting and yearning
And yet so carefree
Waking and dreaming
The world at my feet

Just a kid amongst the Autumn leaves
A kid kicking around with no worries
Just a kid searching through the debris
Just a kid acting like I used to be
Just a kid acting like I used to be

Just a kid amongst the Autumn leaves
A kid kicking around with no worries
Just a kid searching through the debris
Just a kid acting like I used to be
Just a kid acting like I used to be

Just a kid just a man and a boy
Just a moment that time will destroy

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous, should have been on the patchy (but brilliant in places) Know Your Enemy, perhaps there are no comments because it's self-explanatory... It's lovely though, and only the Manics can do this type of song.... Viva the manics.

    General CommentMore of Die In The Summertime... the Manics said that their lives were perfect up until the age of about ten, and that most of their happiest memories were from their childhoods. This is basically saying just that.
