Let me tell you how it was
So many years ago
When lives were lived
In dreams without a care
Those days will always be mine
There to last a lifetime
And take with me anytime anywhere

Those thoughts were of a different time
They seem like yesterday
But society had written different rules
The world was rearranging
And our whole life was changing
Our ways of thinking
Came from different schools

But all the while our hearts were one
As love brought us together
The pain of youth will drown in ecstasy
The more things tend to change
The more the young will make it better

And so we hold on tightly
To those days that made us smile
Those distant feelings
Help me through the day
And though I should know better
To live the past forever
It stays with us and never goes away
