Like Little Children

Like Little Children

Carole King

Lyrics: 

I don't remember just exactly how it started
All I know is we're both alone and broken-hearted
It doesn't make a bit of sense to me
Why should two people in love have to be

Like little children
Who don't know wrong from right
Like little children
Who just can't help but fight
Why should two grown people have to act
Like little children

There's no storm that you and I can't weather
If we just take the time to talk it out together
But when talkin' stops, tempers rise
And we both do things that aren't wise

Like little children
Who don't know wrong from right
Like little children
Who just can't help but fight
Why should two grown people have to act
Like little children

Now I'm not sayin' you've got to do
Everything that I say
But you've got to realize
That life is a two-way highway

Let's forget about the past and look to the new horizon
Being happy together is the goal we'll keep our eyes on
Love for each other we never lacked
And, oh, I know that we don't have to act

Like little children
Who don't know wrong from right
Like little children
Who just can't help but fight

Like little children
Like little children
