When I was young I knew a boy who could run a million miles
without knowing where he'd been.
But this boy he caught a flu and his lips would turn to glue
as all the fields went green

There's no point in being mean
There's no point...
'Cause I'm happy now
I'm happy now
From the thrill of my poise I'd seek it out
That's gotta be something good

When I was young I dreamt of woods,
of robbing trains and wearing hoods
Just knowing that I could
That's gotta be something good

    General CommentI think this song is purely about the innocence and simplicity of children, and whenever the singer thinks about his childhood it makes him happy.

    Song MeaningThis song is the only one I can think of about asthma. It's very sweet though.
