storyoftheyear



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
