When I was a child so wild and free to be most wholly and totally me
You came to see what I might be on this voyage upon this sea of life
And then you issued a decree of clemency for my ongoing pilgrimage
But I was left bereft of soul salvation that I would seek meek and mild
As your child very wild and free to be whatever I really wanted to be
And so this is the course I struck ~ my own path to climb the mountain
To drink from your fountain of youth and never again to die to life….
