lyrics to Goin' Back / Dusty Springfield

Dusty Springfield
Goin' Back

(gerry goffin & carole king)
I think i'm goin' back
To the things
I learned so well
In my youth
I think i'm returning to
Those days
When i was young enough
To know the truth
Now there are no games
To only pass the time
No more colouring books
No christmas bells to chime
But thinking young
And growing older
Is no sin
And i can play
The game of life to win
I can recall the time
When i wasn't ashamed
To reach out to a friend
And now i think i've got
A lot more than
A skipping rope to lend
Now there's more to do
Than watch my sailboat glide
And everyday can be
My magic carpet ride
And i can play hide and seek with my fears
And live my days instead of counting my years
Let everyone debate the true reality
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be
A little bit of freedom's
All we lack
So catch me if you can
I'm goin' back

I think I'm goin' back
To the things
I learned so well
In my youth
I think I'm returning to
Those days
When I was young enough
To know the truth
Now there are no games
To only pass the time
No more colouring books
No Christmas bells to chime
But thinking young
And growing older
Is no sin
And I can play
The game of life to win
I can recall the time
When I wasn't ashamed
To reach out to a friend
And now I think I've got
A lot more than
A skipping rope to lend
Now there's more to do
Than watch my sailboat glide
And everyday can be
My magic carpet ride
And I can play hide and seek with my fears
And live my days instead of counting my years
Let everyone debate the true reality
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be
A little bit of freedom's
All we lack
So catch me if you can
I'm goin' back

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-In addition to hits such as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" and "The Look of Love," which was on the soundtrack for the James Bond film <i>Casino Royale</i>, Springfield is known for the 1969 single "<a href="http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=3346">Son Of A Preacher Man</a>," from the album <b>Dusty in Memphis</b>. While the song was a hit, the album was a commercial flop. The album was originally supposed to be recorded in Memphis with session players who had played with Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding, but Springfield was so intimidated by her surroundings that she refused to sing there. Her vocals were done in New York and added in later. She was not happy with the final results, but <i>Rolling Stone</i> magazine ranked <b>Dusty in Memphis</b> as #89 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
