remember when we used to play
hide and seek and laugh all day
remember when we used to say
there is nothing prettier than the light of day
remember when we used to talk
about dreams about life, when we'd take a walk
remember when, way back then
we lived to see and fall asleep to the perfect sunset
remember when, you used to smile
and the world could stop revolving,
and tears could rain down from the clouds
remember when we could barely understand
why it was fun to kiss and hold my hand
remember when we used to fly
and live our life and never cry
we believed staring at the sun would make us blind
and being a responsible was no fun, and an awful state of mind
remember when we used to feel that way?
wondering why everyone was sad when someone passed away.
remember when we were innocent
remember when it was taken away
remembering is all we have left
remember when we used to play?
