I've been remembering all the times when we were young
Everyday we used to play in the heat of the summer sun
Climbing trees and scraping knees
Until the day turned into night
There's no doubt about it out friendship was tight

Hello my old friend
I know it's been awhile
Since we got together to talk about old times
If we do not find the time to write the stories of tomorrow
We may never get the chance ever again

As the years roll on and on we get caught in a working life
Everyday there's bills to pay
You got your job, your kids, your wife
Back when we were fifteen the hardest choice we had to make
Was whether we should ride our bikes or take a swim down at the lake

Now my memory's faded like that old picture on the wall
Look at us back there with our long hair
Hanging outside the concert hall
We can't find any time to get this crazy life to stop
Before this song is over let's take it from the top
