Life, time slip away fast… a song

LIVING IN THE YESTERDAYS

 

Thinking back

To a time when all the world was right before me

It didn’t bore me

Oh, thinking back

To a time when everybody knew my name

We played the game

 

Then suddenly right in my way this thing that they call life

All the time I had to play has gone and passed me by

Living in the yesterdays is easier it seems

Living all the memories living in my dreams

 

Here am I

Stuck here in the office full of walls

What’s the cause

Oh, here am I

Trying to get through another day

Another way

Where is the hope

Of my finding what my parents found before me

How they adore me

Where is the hope

Of me ever finding just that kind of love

I look above

Then suddenly right in my way this thing that they call life

All the time I had to play has gone and passed me by

Living in the yesterdays is easier it seems

Living all the memories living in my dreams

 

My little one

You are the answer to all of my prayers

And Teddy Bears

Oh, little one

I promise I will love you through it all

You are so small

 

But suddenly right in your way will be this thing called life

All the time you have to play will quickly pass you by

Living in the yesterdays you flash right through your teens

Living in your memories living in your dreams

Living in your memories living in your dreams

 

(Interlude)

 

Then suddenly right in my way this thing that they call life

All the time I had to play has gone and passed me by

Living in the yesterdays is easier it seems

Living all the memories living in my dreams

Then suddenly right in my way this thing that they call life

All the time I had to play has gone and passed me by

Living in the yesterdays is easier it seems

Living all the memories living in my dreams

Yeah, reliving all my memories reliving all my dreams
