1st Verse:

Snowy night I'm a-headed home
An airport bar, there you sat all alone
I said, "Hello, How you been?"
God girl, it sure good to see you again

Remember Panama City
You were fall down drunk
But you still looked pretty
We made love all night
On the beach that September
Told my friends it was great
But you still can't remember
Well...

Chorus:

That was then
This is now
Lookin' back I wouldn't change it anyhow
This is now
That was then
Life rolls on
We're still riding against the wind

2nd Verse:

As for me
My life's been up and down
Playing night to night
Movin' town to town
You say you had a daughter, I've got two of my own
They're the love of my life
They sure helped me grow up

I've seen a few things,
Played for the troops in Iraq
I made a few friends who didn't make it back
Yeah, I've danced with the devil
Cried with the saints
I put it in words
So it's wasn't all in vain

Chorus:

That was then
This is now
Lookin' back i wouldn't change it anyhow
This is now
That was then
Life rolls on
We're still riding against the wind

Bridge:

Somedays I'm smiling
Somedays I'm sad
Somedays I still wake up fightin' mad
Yeah there's a part of me that wants to go back
Then I remember I'm good right where I'm at
It's getting late baby so let's raise a glass
One to the future
And one to the past
To those photographs, pictures of
The friends we lost
And here's to the one we love!

Chorus:

That was then
This is now
Lookin' back I wouldn't change it anyhow
This is now
That was then
Life rolls on
We're still riding against the wind

It's alright
It's okay
Yesterdays gone
I'm living for today
It's OK
It's alright
Somehow we all made it through the night

Life rolls on baby!
And it's rolling!
We're still riding against the wind!
It's alright!
It's OK!
I wouldn't change it anyway
