childhood bedroom Lyrics – Ben Platt

Worrying works in mysterious ways
Sneaking up on me
When I think that I’m safe
But I know a feel and a sort of a place
A loophole when I need to escape

Everytime I wanna get a little peace of mind
All I gotta do is close my eyes
And suddenly I’m

Dancin’ in my childhood bedroom
Fallin’ right back in to the way it was
Dancin’ like I never get to
Step into my mind and suddenly I’m

Back in the chaos and not in my head
The heavy in my chest is a feather instead
Better be quick for whatever comes next
And if I need to, I can go there again

Everytime I wanna get a little peace of mind
All I gotta do is close my eyes
And suddenly I’m

Dancin’ in my childhood bedroom
Fallin’ right back in to the way it was
Dancin’ like I never get to
Step into my mind and suddenly I’m
Barefoot on my dark blue carpet
Temporary freedom within these walls
Everytime I think I’ve lost it
Step into my mind and suddenly I’m

Somewhere else, somewhere else with
No one else, no one else
I’m somewhere else, somewhere else with
No one else, no one else
And suddenly I’m

Dancin’ in my childhood bedroom
Fallin’ right back in to the way it was
Dancin’ like I never get to
Step into my mind and suddenly I’m
Barefoot on my dark blue carpet
Temporary freedom within these walls
Everytime I think I’ve lost it
Step into my mind and suddenly I’m

(Somewhere else) With
(No one else) I’m
(Somewhere else) With
(No one else)
