A time of innocence and love
Could we go back to how it was
I remember when life was so simple
You did or you didn't
You would or you wouldn't
But it ain't like that anymore
I remember when life was so easy
People said what they meant
They were either for it or against
But it ain't like that anymore
Somewhere we lost the score
(CHORUS)
Bring back the days of yea and nay
When we could plainly see the way
Then it was up to us to choose
Whether to win or to lose
Bring back the times when we could see
What it was we were to be
Caught in the midst of complexity
We search for yea and nay
I remember when life ws so simple
Parents were a light
Through them we saw what was right
But it ain't like that anymore
I remember when life was so easy
Boys grew into men, little girls to women then
But it ain't like that anymore
Somewhere we lost the score
(REPEAT CHORUS)
We knew where we belonged
What was right and what was wrong
(REPEAT CHORUS)
Need a simple yes or no
Should I stay or should I go
Life has become so advanced
Wish i had a second chance
To go back if I could
See what was bad and what was good
Now I'm here and what I fear
Is we won't find yea or nay

    I understand it to mean the plea for the restoration of the days of simplicity, integrity, truthfulness, sincerity back to our complex society.
