Billy Bob Thornton – In The Day lyrics

Do you remember in the day
All our crazy summer ways
And those guys that were our friends

The red and yellow windy falls
When we seemed to have it all
And it was never gonna end

The girls we loved
That came and went
All the idle time we spent
Playing records that we'd borrowed

Now it kinda hurts to think
Every time I take a drink
That this would be tomorrow

[Chorus:]
I don't see nothin' wrong with dreaming
Unless that's all you seem to do
Something's wrong when you can't find meaning
Since nineteen seventy two

I'm not sure if it's me that
Needs changing'
Maybe we had a better way
But then the world always
Needed rearranging
Even back in the day
Even back in the day

They've turned the Ritz into
A mall
And tore down the Big and Tall
But the ghosts still wander main street

They took away the mom and pop
There's a seven acre stop
Where you buy new tires and bed sheets

Paula's record shop is gone
It died a little with each song
That was written by committee

Now the stars don't really shine
They steal the glow we left behind
In a time they never did see

[Chorus:]
I don't see nothin' wrong with dreaming
Unless that's all you seem to do
Something's wrong when you can't find meaning
Since nineteen seventy two

I'm not sure if it's me that
Needs changing'
Maybe we had a better way
But then the world always
Needed rearranging
Even back in the day
Even back in the day
