Jumping back to beginnings when it all kicked off
When we all were lost and I can’t help grinning
Coz we were all so young and we felt so tough
Had our feet on the street but we lifted off
When we began to talk and we all let go
Yes it was set in stone, no one could know
It was put it place and we never alone
We were caught up in it and I’ll never forget it

I just wanna be back then

Living never made more sense
Picking up ten and passing out again
It became a home from home
And we were never alone from end to end
For a while we were there on the right side
Making hours count in the daytime
When it came to an end we were swept up with it
Just messed up kids but I’ll never forget it

I just wanna be back then
