  • Traveling at the speed of light and then
    At the same time I'm in the same spot too
    The room was kept in
    'Bout the same way you left it
    With about the threats you mess in attitude
    Where ya' been with all your grin
    Until all your friends turn their backs on you
    Reminiscing over what you've been missing
    Could be just like cousins kissing
    That's taboo

    I just wanna go back, baby
    Back to the way it was
    I just wanna go back, baby
    Back to the way it was
    I used to get real high, now I
    But now I'm just gettin' a buzz
    I wanna go back, baby
    Back to the way it was

    If you win, no matter if you lose
    You got to come back again
    Pay some dues
    Back in Richmond, shit ain't changed a bit in
    Niggas with a little piss in got some attitudes
    I been wondering if I can love again
    So if you're wondering about the shape I'm in
    I hope it ain't my abdomen that you're referring to

    Seasons may come and your luck just may run out
    And all that you'll have is some memories, oh
    Seasons may come and your luck just may run out
    And all that you'll have is some memories, oh
    Seasons may come and your luck just may run out
    And all that you'll have is some memories, oh
    Seasons may come and your luck just may run out
    And all that you'll have is some memories, oh

    Said I just wanna go back, baby
    Back to the way it was, now, now, now
    I used to get real high
    Now I'm just getting' a buzz, now, now, now
    I said back to the way it was, now, now, now
    I just wanna go back, baby
    Back to the way it was, now, now, now
    I just wanna go back, baby
    Back to the way it was, now, now, now
    I used to get real high
    Now I'm just getting' a buzz, now, now, now
    Back to the way it was, now, now, now Writer/s: Michael Eugene Archer
