  • Remember when the streetlights came on
    And we had to be home?
    Remember when Elm Street came on?
    Couldn't watch it alone
    Remember every prank call we made?
    And star sixty-nine
    Remember trying to hit eighty-eight
    To go back in time?
    Remember when they played Purple Rain
    To our first slow dance?
    Remember when we thought that first base
    Was just holding hands?

    Those days come back in the dead of night
    Those days that felt like another life
    What would you be doin' back in those days?

    We'd be turnin' up the stereo
    And play it everywhere we'd go
    And so did everyone we'd know in those days
    And everybody got to fall in love
    With every movie made for us
    God, I couldn't get enough of those days

    Remember every poster we had
    Hanging on the wall?
    Remember every t-shirt we stole
    From the local mall? (Ace of Spades by Motörhead)
    Remember Guns n' Roses came out?
    We were standin' in line
    Remember front row at that show?
    Camped out all night (got so high, Sweet Child O' Mine)

    Those days come back in the dead of night
    Those days that felt like another life
    What would you be doin' back in those days?

    We'd be turnin' up the stereo
    And play it everywhere we'd go
    And so did everyone we'd know in those days
    And everybody got to fall in love
    With every movie made for us
    God, I couldn't get enough of those days

    The time we'd waste, 'cause life could wait
    What we'd give to relive just a single day
    The time we'd waste, 'cause life could wait
    What we'd give to relive just a single day
    Instead of turnin' the page

    We'd be turnin' up the stereo
    And play it everywhere we'd go
    And so did everyone we'd know in those days
    And everybody got to fall in love
    With every movie made for us
    God, I couldn't get enough of those days

    Those days that felt like another life
    Those days come back in the dead of night
    Those days that felt like another life
    What would you be doin' back in those days? Writer/s: Chad Kroeger, Ryan Peake
