Eleventyseven – Back When We Were Kids lyrics

Remember back before all the drama
Remember back before all of the bills and the degrees
Every hill that we stood on felt like a mountain
And every lake that we swam in felt just like a raging
Shooting stars were still good for wishing on
And old appliance boxes took us straight up to the moon
Every single day was a saturday
And every night like clock work bedtime always came too
And we knew...

If we had problems band-aids fixed it

Mom was always there to listen
And every night we'd say our prayers
To someone watching us up there
Life was so much simpler way back then
Back when we were kids

We all had our own sense of fashion
And we didn't care who'd written or directed our cartoons
There was still some magic in a sunrise
And we could visit dinosaurs and make it back by noon
And we knew...
