Way Back When

Album: In a Perfect World (2013)
  • We never had that much to do
    So we just lay around in someone's house
    Someday I'll have it all again
    Just like way back when

    Back then we'd sleep until the afternoon
    And we'd just get up and go outside
    Open a window, let the breeze blow in
    Forget everything

    Yea, those will be the days that I will be missing
    When I'm old and when I'm gray and when I stop working
    I hope that I can say
    When all my days are done
    We were just having fun

    Well we'd go drinking in the afternoon
    Lie out on the grass, so fall asleep
    Oh will I ever see that girl again?
    The girl from way back when

    Yea, we used to share a cigarette
    And throw together everything we had
    And then you're driving in my parents' car
    And loving straight til you fall

    Yea, those will be the days that I will be missing
    When I'm old and when I'm gray and when I stop working
    I hope that I can say
    When all my days are done
    That I had my fun

    Those will be the days I had my fun

    Yea, in time we moved so fast
    Some things are made to last
    Here's to you , my dear old friend
    From way back when

    Yea, those will be the days that I will be missing
    When I'm old and when I'm gray and when I stop working
    I hope that I can say
    When all my days are done
    That I had my fun Writer/s: Mark Prendergast, Steve Garrigan, Vincent May
