People say don't rock the boat,
Let things go their own way
Ideas that once seem so right,
Now have gotten hard to say
I wish I could talk to you,
You could talk to me
'Cause there's very few of us left
My friend
From the days that used to be.

Seem like such a simple thing
To follow one's own dream
But possessions and concession
Are not often what they seem
They drag you down
And load you down
In disguise of security.
But we never had
To make those deals
In the days that used to be.

Talk to me, my long lost friend,
Tell me how you are
Are you happy with
Your circumstance,
Are you driving a new car
Does it get you where you wanna go,
With a seven year warranty
Or just another
Hundred thousand miles away
From days that used to be.
