I had that same dream again I dreamed I was an old man dyin' and tryin' to repent And facing consequences for all the shit I've put up with But now I've run out of steam A broken backed nostalgiac No chance left to redeem I'm longing for my heyday give me a change to live again IF ONLY I WERE EIGHTEEN AGAIN I WOULD SPEND ALL MY TIME TRYIN' TO REMEMBER WHEN .....WAS I THAT MUCH HAPPIER THEN? IF ONLY I WERE EIGHTEEN AGAIN.... And now I'm older it seems Well at least while I sleep deep within my anxiety dreams I comb my hair on over Put my teeth in and give a grin I recollect and reflect Loves lost at too much cost' my conscience full of regret And if I wake up I hope this better be a better day IF ONLY I WERE EIGHTEEN AGAIN I WOULD SPEND ALL MY TIME TRYIN' TO REMEMBER WHEN .....WAS I THAT MUCH HAPPIER THEN? IF ONLY I WERE EIGHTEEN AGAIN.... The real truth of youth is innocence is a blessed and a cursed simulcast The simple fact is that I'm sick of every song that dwells on the past But still I go on writing How long can my discontent last? When I wake from my dream Reality kicks in and I grinned just wonderin' what it means The whole world screams "grow up" And I know I can, but I don't know when!
