Lost during the good old days (song lyrics)

15 Apr

I am not quite sure when the “good old days” were or if there were any.  Maybe in my late- late 20’s and early 30’s but I was still in a depression and I don’t remember that clearly what was going on.  I couldn’t enjoy it, because I couldn’t enjoy anything.  Looking back I see I had a lot of people that cared about me and a lot of friends.  I knew to some degree, but was lost with the cloud of depression around me.  I wonder if those “good old days” are gone for good, or if I’ll have a good sized close circle of friends again.  I know the older you get the harder it is.

 

I wish somebody would have told me, babe
Someday, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
Someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of these good old days

I was thinkin’ ’bout the band
I was thinkin’ ’bout the fans
We were underground
Loadin’ merch in that 12-passenger van
In a small club in Minnesota
And the snow outside of 1st Ave
I just wanted my name in a star
Now look at where we at
Still growin’ up, still growin’ up
I would lay in my bed and dream about what I’d become
Couldn’t wait to get older, couldn’t wait to be some
Now that I’m here, wishing I was still young
Those good old days

I wish somebody would have told me, babe
That someday, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
‘Cause someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of the good old days

Wish I didn’t think I had the answers
Wish I didn’t drink all of that flask first
Wish I made it to homecoming
Got up the courage to ask her
Wish I would’ve gotten out of my shell
Wish I put the bottle back on that shelf
Wish I wouldn’t have worry about what other people thought
And felt comfortable in myself
Rooftop open, and the stars above
Moment frozen, sneakin’ out, and fallin’ in love
Me, you and that futon, we’d just begun
On the grass dreamin’, figuring out who I was
Those good old days

I wish somebody would have told me, babe
That someday, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
‘Cause someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of the good old days

Never thought we’d get old, maybe we’re still young
Maybe you always look back and think it was better than it was
Maybe these are the moments
Maybe I’ve been missin’ what it’s about
Been scared of the future, thinkin’ about the past
While missin’ out on now
We’ve come so far, I guess I’m proud
And I ain’t worried ’bout the wrinkles ’round my smile
I’ve got some scars, I’ve been around
I’ve felt some pain, I’ve seen some things, but I’m here now
Those good old days

You don’t know what you’ve got
‘Til it goes, ’til it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got
‘Til it goes, ’til it’s gone

I wish somebody would have told me, babe
Someday, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
Someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of these good old days
