It was mostly in white 
and in other colors maybe,
Had everything a child need
Had every dream a child dreams
It was a smile
It was innocence
It was warm
It was security
Had all three of us wrapped 
slept tight into the deepness of it
into easy and simple
caught up too strongly, not to leave
A Good bedtime story would justify our needs
too young and too pure
We were together, here and for all
Even the atmosphere's scent smelled love
It is everything I dream about now
It was a peace of mind and it is,
Just a memory of it 
Do you still know well your own childhood?
How little mind of yours kept  Big happy thoughts
How little heart of yours loved truly the whole world
How little you were, and how small were your penalties
How far you looked ahead to the future,
By tomorrow you were hopeful and content about yesterday
But now,you're all grown up and life is just a pass ticket to hell or heaven,
Lost hope in tomorrow and ain't satisfied by how yesterday came
How long have you been like that and since when life took over,
Were you optimistic or naive ?
When you used to build castles out of mud
When you used to dress to be like a superhero
When you used to root for the good to win,
knowing deep down it will always do
You gotta be thinking now
Must been a naive,
Yet you were OPTIMISTIC !
