I always go the other way
But my car drove me down today
To a little house on the older side of town

Back when things were never hard
I used to play there in that yard
And I just drove by to see if things had changed

Cokes were just a nickel then
And across the street at the five and ten
A lot of things were cheap and square and strange

And life that we had, might have been
It was one we loved believin' in
And I just drove by to see if things had changed

I wondered now if love is still
The way it was back then
I need to know that life is still a place worth livin' in

There it is just like it was
A house where there was always love
I just drove by to see if things had changed

In a world that's seen it's better days
It's good to know some things remain the same
Though standing still is not times way

Take to heart while in it's spring
That love is just a fragile thing
Oh, I just drove by to see if things had changed

I wondered now if love is still
The way it was back then
I need to know that life is still a place worth livin' in

There it is just like it was
A house where there was always love
And I just drove by to see if things had changed
I just drove by to see if things had changed
