Mostly Like Children
Words and music by Steven Grossman

Alone with the TV
alone in the house
With make believe coffee
in an oversized blouse
Giggling in the mirror
with a red runny nose
Is a daydreaming child in grown-up clothes
There’s a daydreaming child in grown-up clothes. Grown-up clothes

Alone with the records
alone in a room
With a make-believe audience
and a microphone broom
Taking bows from the sofa in socks without toes
is a child with visions in grown-up clothes
There’s a child with visions in grown-up clothes. Grown-up clothes

Alone by the window
alone in a sheet
In make believe love-light
and a mysterious heat
Heady with adventure
and for a friend that often shows
Dressed in childlike wonder and grown-up clothes
Dressed in childlike wonder and grown-up clothes
Well I believe that we are mostly like these children in grown-up clothes.
