Do you still remember back when
The days were longer? dreams were bigger then
The weight of the world had not yet
 Landed on the shoulders of a man

(I thought) I thought that time stood still
Sheltered, protected 
They never told me this would end or that
The leaves would fall again 

So take me back, back to better days
'cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back when we were not afraid 
'cause this time between is wasting me away

 There was a day when this world 
Went to war and didn't bat an eye
Real life and the movies felt the same to me and
I never questioned why

(I know) I know the difference now
 Between fact and fiction 
But I've come to find that I've grown  Bitter in just twenty four short years

So take me back, back to better days
'cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back when we were not afraid 
'cause this time between is wasting me away

 Wasting me away
 Waste away!

So now we're running 
We're running blind into the light 
And we fall behind 
We're running and wasting away with time

So take me back, back to better days
'cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back when we were not afraid 
'cause this time between is wasting me away

Take me back, yeah, back to better days
'cause this time between is wasting me away
Take me back when we were not afraid 
'cause this time between is wasting me away

(take me back)
Yeah, take me back, just take me back, yeah, take me back!
(take me back)
Yeah, take me back, just take me back, yeah, take me back!

When we were not afraid
