Verse 1:

I was the one who always spoke her mind.
Never thought about the things others would say.
Spent my days looking forward, not behind
Way back in the day.

Verse 2:

We could play house, live the perfect life.
There was no suffering, no effort and no strife.
Life was laughter, with nothing to bring me down
Oh, way back in the day.

Chorus:

Believed that one day I’d be, the person I’d want to be
and life was only happiness.
And didn’t have to pretend, that this life would never end
Back then it was all just fun and games.
Only way back in the day. Yeah, way back in the day

Verse 3:

I miss the moments, the memories of the past,
when life was just one huge playground.
Cherished all friendships, knowing each was a treasure found
Oh, way back in the day; but only way back in the day.

Chorus:

Believed that one day I’d be, the person I’d want to be
and life was only happiness.
And didn’t have to pretend, that this life would never end
Back then it was all just fun and games.
Only way back in the day. Yeah, way back in the day

Outro:

So here are my last words, the last piece of advice:
Remember your childhood, don’t ever lose those ties
‘Cause memories are precious, and time flies by
Like Way Back in the Day.

I really enjoy writing music and lyrics. Playing the guitar along with it brings my creations to life. I know many people can relate to this song; remembering how it was when we were little. Hope you like it :)
