about

A song about adolescence and the classic children's telefantasy that got us through it.

This song was written in 2011 with the 'All Summer in a Day' section added in 2017.

lyrics

It isn't easy growing up
Feeling different, feeling new
Understanding where we fit
With the changes we go through

Life is full of turmoil
And questions old and new
When it seems the world's turned upside down
What's a teenager to do?

Now they're bending the wheels
Now they're smashing the clocks
They've kicked in the telly
They're blocking the locks!

Society's ending
The world's rearranged
Now the pylons are screaming
And everything's changed!

Oh we're going through changes
Feeling different, feeling new
Understanding where we fit
With the changes we go through

Life is full of turmoil
And questions old and new
When it seems the world's turned upside down
What's a teenager to do?

Now the paintings are changing
Now the weather has changed
With blue and green badges
Causing all of the rage!

Society's ending
The world's rearranged
Now the colours are fighting
And everything's changed!

But you’ve dreamed of purest sunlight
Better than the lamps
The rains won’t last forever
Isn’t always dark and damp

So you share the light inside you
Tell them soon we can be free
It’s a shining burning penny
From a childhood memory

Will you reach the minds of others
Will they help you jaunt away?
Or will they lock you in the cupboard
While Venusian children play…

And they play
While you’re locked away
How they play
All summer in a day
It slipped away

It isn't easy growing up
Asking questions, feeling new
Running from the world around
And the things they put us through!

Life is full of struggles
And things we mustn't do
When it seems the world's against us
What's a teenager to do?

Now you're coming of age
But it feels like a trap
Now the masters are coming
With your happiness cap!

Childhood is ending
The world's been arranged
Now the tripods are rulers
And everything's changed!

We go through changes
Being different, feeling new
When childhood dreams have ended
What's a teenager to do?

Share your light with others
And help them jaunt away!
Save Margot from her closet
Let’s find that summer’s day
