The Kid Inside(From'Is There Life After High School')

Man 1:
There's a kid inside,
And I have him with me always.
Women 2:
There's a kid inside,
Walking down old high school hallways.
Women 1&3, Men 2,3,4:
There's a kid inside,
Women 3:
At a desk
Woman 1, Man 2:
At a dance,
Woman 2, Man 3:
In the halls,
Man 4
In the showers.
All together
There's a kid inside,
Man 1:
To this very day.
Man 5:
And he make a try
For the high pop fly
That I fumbled one september.
Woman 4:
And she makes a fuss
Over some A+
That I shouldn't still remember.
All together:
And he goes along
5 voices:
Getting hurt,
4 voices:
Getting mad,
All together:
Fighting fights that are over.
And unless I'm strong,
All my senses are carried away.
Woman 3:
I can feel John's hand
Man 5:
My Trembling hand

on my old angora sweater
I can hear my band,
that awful band
only now it sounds much better
I can see the kid
on the stage
on the field
on the lunch line
I can feel him tugging at me
I can hear him say
Always remember, never forget,
Always remember, never forget,
choosing sides
never forget
dancing in the gym
always remember
saying something dump
never forget
being cheered by the crowd
always remember
the faces, the names
never forget
who was popular and who was not.
Remeber the dates,
and the loves and the hates and the games
and when I think I forgot:
There's a kid inside
keeping track, keeping score,
like it's all still important.
there's a kid inside
every time I think I don't care
I blink and he's there's again.
He's there again
fighting ancient wrongs,
humming old hit songs in my head,
singing "come along, come along.
Come along for the ride."
to a time and place
I could not forget if I tried
always remember.
all I never know
when the breeze'll blow
with a rush of old sensations
why the kid should wake
and my heart should ache
every time I smell carnations
something rings a bell.
anything at all
all it takes is the slam of a locker or the switch from summer to fall
a change of season
seems barely reason but
there again...

Posting this, because I heard this on my shuffle, but had a harder time locating the original song (as in, it actually took several google queries to locate the original song. And there was only two sources, which is kinda sad.)

So here's another source for the lyrics of this song. Obviously, posted without permission - to the publisher/author/owner of the copyright, if you have problems with me advertising your content, please reply to this post or send me an e-mail. (To clarify, my goal in posting this here is so people can find it, if they hear it somewhere and want to identify it, they'll be able to).
