[Verse 1]
Things were always gonna change
Sometimes I can't accept it
You're becoming like a stranger
We're becoming disconnected
I know you're a man now
With a new place to stay
But please let me be your priority
Just for one day

[Chorus]
I love you now
As I loved you then
But I know you less everyday
Please can we be children again
Before you fly away?

[Verse 2]
You may not agree
So they're not accepted
But I feel like we're drifting
We're becoming disconnected
I know you're not near me
But I'll still sing a song
And if you can hear me
Don't stay away so long

[Chorus]
I love you now
As I loved you then
But I know you're less everyday
Please can we be children again
Before you fly away?

[Bridge]
D'you think I'm being drastic
Do you think that I'm unfair
And will this message even reach you
To let you know I care?
I know you can't choose family
But even if I could
I'd choose you as my brother
I just wish you understood

[Chorus]
I love you now
As I loved you then
But I know you less everyday
Please can we be children again
Before you fly away? (x2)

[Outro]
Please can we be children again
Before you fly away (x2)
