What’s the song really about?
Casting his mind back to simpler times the song begins with Furlong remeniscing on fond childhood memories.
Narrating the naivety of childhood Furlong describes several stages of his life including learning how to ride a bike with his father and playing with his friends.
While the song manages to remain cheery and lighted hearted it touches on the importance of learning new life lessons and makes brief reference to seeking parents approval.
This song connects for the simple fact that it’s honest and regardless of the outcome, growing up is a part of life we all have to face – yes even you.
But don’t start sighing just yet!
Furlong concludes the song by reminding listeners to hold on to a little piece of the child within.
Who knows it may just come in handy one day.
Thoughts From The Artist
Speaking on the song furlong echoed these sentiments revealing:
The transition from childhood into adulthood is something we all get to experience. We learn to accept the challenges & changes as a part of our daily lives, the transformations bringing with them their own unique lessons. From this place it’s important to remember where you’ve come from, to acknowledge the benefits of being ‘as a child’, of freedom without limitations, about endless possibilities & dreaming of the future, of pure happiness in it’s truest form. Those feelings of joy & remembering to never let them go.
