Well I don’t like taking pictures
‘cause I don’t like to admit
That someday I’ll be older
And there’ll be times that I forget

So I don’t keep a scrapbook
‘cause I don’t need that weight
Well the memories are like ghosts
And they haunt me when it’s late

Give me back those simple days
Back when we used to dream

And I dream for more than I have
I want more than I got
But I believe in the simple things
Yeah the things that I forgot

But I got a couple pictures
Because sometimes I like to see
How I looked when I was younger
‘cause I didn’t look that way to me

And my daddy he kept a scrapbook
And I’d leaf through once in a while
Those old black and white pictures
Of wedding cakes and sisters
Yeah, they make me smile

Give me back those simple days
Back when we used to dream

And I dream for more than I have
I want more than I got
And I believe in the simple things
Yeah the things that I forgot, yeah

Give me back those simple days
Back when we used to dream

And I dream for more than I have
I want more than I got
And I believe in the simple things
Yeah the things that I forgot

Well the things that I forgot
Give me back the simple things that I forgot
