Sometimes I get to feelin’
back in the old days - long ago
When we  kids when we  young
Thing  so perfect - you know
The days  endless we  crazy we  young
The sun  always shinin’ - we just  for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
The rest of my life’s been just a show

Those  the days of our lives
The bad things in life  so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you

You can't turn back the clock you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame
I'd like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life  just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin’ on what you
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
Better sit back and go with the flow

Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find no change

Those  the days of our lives - yeah
The bad things in life  so few
Those days are all gone now but one things still true
When I look and I find
I still love you

I still love you
