Back to the Day [Lyrics]

Ronny Rose Photography

V1:

I remember the day not a thing was stressed,
Sitting underneath the shade shorty on my left,
Sun sky high purple haze playing out the deck,
We used to worry about play now it’s about debt,
I remember the days when we were kids,
And we were fishing by the lake with our bait, nothing can hinder me,
Playing underneath the shade, Shel Silverstein,
Are we really too old to lay under the giving tree,
Take me back to the day before we were big pimpin it,
Back to the day when it wasn’t about dividends,
Laughing a playing with our friends was how we living it,
Shouldn’t change but everyone’s wishing they were kids again.

Pre Hook:

I won’t lie,
And live like this anymore,
I won’t put up my guard,
No more.

Hook:

Take me back to the day,
We were young,
We were free,
And we did not give a fuck about the choices that we made.
Now that we are older,
We must embrace,
All the challenges we face,
But until that day,
I’ll be on my way,
To march for change.

V2:

I remember the time when we had different dreams
Thinkin I could do anything is it that hard to achieve,
Not if you put your mind to it and you just believe,
Come together help you be the person that you want to be,
It’s time to capture the essence of youth,
Fight back all the flaws that reside in me and the weapon is truth,
Live your life without the plight of greed consuming you,
Let me take you to the light and see the world through the eyes of me,
As I look back and see the neighborhood faces at play,
Lush green fields, laughing on the swing as we sway,
What an array of happiness I just wanted to say,
That you don’t have to be a kid for you to feel it today.

Pre Hook:

I won’t lie,
And live like this anymore,
I won’t put up my guard,
No more.

Hook:

Take me back to the day,
We were young,
We were free,
And we did not give a fuck about the choices that we made.
Now that we are older,
We must embrace,
All the challenges we face,
But until that day,
I’ll be on my way,
To march for change.

Bridge:

All the people we meet in our cities and streets are among us,
Come together forever as witnesses to ourselves,
We can dance in the light and get lit every night,
Without any danger won’t put up a fight,
Together forever as witnesses to ourselves.

Hook:

Take me back to the day,
We were young,
We were free,
And we did not give a fuck about the choices that we made.
Now that we are older,
We must embrace,
All the challenges we face,
But until that day,
I’ll be on my way,
To march for change.
