Back In The Day Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's been a while since I've left home
But I'm coming on back today
Kinda funny but I picture it only exactly as it
Was back in the day

Sure enough when the train pulls in
There's so little that I recognize
Is it the scenery or my selective memory
Or just a simple fact that I gotta realize?

My friends have gone and their lives have
Moved on and I guess that's just the way it is
If this town has grown beyond my home
I guess it all comes down to this

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day
But those times have long been through
The dying of the light is gone but it's back in the day
Like a wish that comes half true

There was a time when it was easy to find a
Hangout that you knew was yours by name
And mine or not I could find the same spot but
It's never gonna be the same

I've been away and I've seen too much
Looks like I've been moving on as well
And when I started to not really belong
I suppose I was unable to tell

But I ain't sad and no it isn't bad
It's just one more thing I'm coming to know
If you're alive you didn't finish the ride
No telling where it's going to go

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day
But those times have long been through
The dying of the light is gone but it's back in the day
Like a wish that comes half true

It's been a while since I left home
But I'm coming on back today
Kinda funny but I picture it only exactly as it
Was back in the day

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day
But those times have long been through
The dying of the light is gone but it's back in the day
Like a wish that comes half true

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day
But those times have long been through
The dying of the light is gone but it's back in the day
Like a wish that comes half true
