WHAT CHILDREN BELIEVE

Brent Lamb, Jerry Salley and James Isaac Elliot

Saturday Morning at a treehouse meeting
In our backyard
Over Kool-Aid and crackers
You could hear through the laughter
Just how smart they are
With crayons they wrote down the things they believed
Oh, the wisdom in first grade philosophy

Love lasts forever
Mom and daddies stay together
Cheaters never win
And a promise is something you keep
Its bad to lie, it's okay to cry
Dreams never die
Faith is all you need
Ain't it crazy what children believe

Sometimes I wish I didn't know now
What i didn't know then
When my world was so small
Back before all of this trouble we're in
When right and wrong mattered
And truth was in style
And hope could be seen
Through the eyes of a child

Love lasts forever
Mom and daddies stay together
Cheaters never win
And a promise is something you keep
Its bad to lie, it's okay to cry
Dreams never die
Faith is all you need
Ain't it crazy what children believe

A world without hate
Where people still care
What a wonderful place this would be
If we lived where. . .

Love lasts forever
Mom and daddies stay together
Cheaters never win
And a promise is something you keep
Its bad to lie, it's okay to cry
Dreams never die
Faith is all you need
Ain't it crazy what children believe
