Count From Ten
Written by Alx Kawakami (SESAC) Eric Berdon (SESAC)

Remember when we used to dream every night.
Like time would never slip away too fast.
As young kids that play without a worry on their mind
Smiling and having such a blast.

As we grow a little older we forget that life's a game,
Staying undercover when we should go out and play.

Close your eyes count from ten and I will hide,
A little game takes us back in time,
We're young again.
Let's close our eyes, count from ten and we'll rewind,
Singing our favorite childhood rhymes,
Once again just count from ten.

Suns out, buns out, it's time to get a tan.
The only thing to worry about is lines.
The hourglass is gone and all we've got is sand.
A castle that was once kissed by tide.

As we grow a little wiser we remember life's a game,
Work a little harder to make time to go and play.

Ten - feels like I'm flying
Nine - I wanna peak behind me
Eight - You can try and whisper
Seven - but I can hear your slippers
Six - moving in shadows
Five - like a dancing candle
Four - three - two - one
Ready or not here I come.
