Back In The Day

It was all so easy,
Back in the day:
When you grew up
It would all be ok,
You had no worries back in the day.

Back in the day
They said schooldays
Were the best of your life,
It would never be this good again
Back in the day.

And after you left
You’d get a good job,
Meet someone nice, get married,
It all seemed so easy
back in the day.

And when it didn’t happen
As they said back in the day,
Didn’t happen
As you hoped and believed
Back in the day,

You can’t help but wonder
Where it all went wrong
Back in the day,
When it all seemed so easy
Back in the day.

Was it all a big lie
Back in the day,
To shut you up, keep you in line?
Or just bad luck
Back in the day?

It’s too late now
To go back in the day,
To try and put things right,
Though I can rely on all the old songs
From back in the day

To take me back
Whenever I want to go
Back in the day,
When it all seemed so easy
Back in the day.
