Cabbage Patch Heroes

Starting from scratch
I follow my gaze
To a simpler life
In much simpler days

The grass full of life
The air full of sound
We kick and we play through
Dead leaves on the ground

A forest of wonder
And through it we crawl
No adventure too big
In a garden so small

On a hill top so high
With not a care or a clue
Just a pile of old boxes
With a breathtaking view

Just a fall and a bump
All those painful lies
For once not the cause
Of the tears in my eyes

No heartbreak to dwell on
No wars worth a fight
And no way to come back here
Try as I might

Do you remember the whistling?
Of the wind in the trees
And the tale we were told
Of the birds and the bees

We cabbage patch heroes
With no horses to ride
We’ll challenge the world
With our sticks at our side
