take me back

Take me back to the times we once knew
To the places where we ran
Take me back to the days when I knew
Just exactly how to stand
Those were times when life seemed easy
Times when it was all so clear
Take me back, take me back to the time
called yesteryear

Playing out in the cornfields
Getting itchy, but we’d still run
in and out of those long green rows
on a never-ending quest for fun
Those were times when life seemed easy
Times when it was all so clear
Take me back, take me back to the time
called yesteryear

it’s not just yesterday
not just a box of memories
it wasn’t no work and all play
our laughter was mixed with tears
it’s part of our history —
a story we wrote together
it was a time that
only get’s better
a time called yesteryear.

sitting under the oak tree
there in the middle of the field
waiting for the dogs to come back
from chasing things we didn’t see
Those were times when life seemed easy
Times when it was all so clear
Take me back, take me back to the time
called yesteryear

Watching grandpa in the front parlor
where we’d set up a hospital bed
as he slowly drift away
confusion in everything he said
Those were times when life wasn’t easy
Times when nothing was very clear
Take me back, take me back to the time
called yesteryear

it’s not just yesterday
not just a box of memories
it wasn’t no work and all play
our laughter was mixed with tears
it’s part of our history —
a story we wrote together
it was a time that
only get’s better
a time called yesteryear.
