  • Another year goes by
    Spinning as I drive
    I felt like I would leave this life I knew forever
    I didn't see it change
    But I know it's not the same
    I'd bring it back, if I could
    But I know, I'm not that clever

    Life's so short
    And it goes by fast
    And we can't get it back

    The world we knew
    It was so simple then
    Me and you
    Though it would never end
    Oh, what I wouldn't do
    To get back to
    The world we knew

    Something bring me back
    Yeah I remember that
    And nothing wrong
    The days were long and the sun was warmer

    Life's so short
    And it goes by fast
    We'll never get it back

    The world we knew
    It was so simple then
    Me and you
    Though it would never end
    Oh, what I wouldn't do
    To get back to
    The world we knew

    I remember nights
    Baby, you and I
    Taking what were given
    And I remember days
    Standing in the rain
    That's what I can't leave there
    Not a worry, not a care
    Everything was different
    But we're still here

    In the world we knew
    It was so simple then
    Me and you
    It was so simple then
    The world we knew
    Hey, oh yeah
    Oh the world we knew

    Oh, the world we knew Writer/s: ANTONINA ARMATO, CHRIS DAUGHTRY, TIMOTHY PRICE
