I remember when I was able to pretend
I was a soldier in my old backyard
I was only 9 or 10 but I was climbing over fences
Just in case I had to join the war
As the enemies got closer I started moving slower
But then I saw them heading toward the park
With a tree branch on my back, I was ready to attack 'em
Just as long as I was home by dark

I know I'm not as small as I once was
But I still can play in the rain with my broken toy airplanes

I remember back when the water always attacked
My many sandcastles along the shore
Each and every time I see them getting swallowed by the sea
I'd grab my goggles and we'd go to war
With my shovel and my pail I lived the never ending tale
Of how I made the ocean dance and roar
While I was battling my foe I thought that it was time to go
But we didn't have to leave 'til 4

Now that I'm older, I'm not having that much fun
I'm not a soldier and my curfew is far past one
I can stay out past dark and stay afloat at sea
I may be taller but that doesn't change a thing

I know I'm not as small as I once was
But I still can play in the rain with my broken toy airplanes
