It was a long, long time ago
When I should have said i love you so
But I didn't though
And now it's the price that I pay
I'm never one to reminisce
But I'm haunted by our only kiss
And I'll tell you this
I never should have let you get away
Back in the day
Back in the day
Remember the time when all our friends
Took a fistful of amphetamines
And we laughed at them
Cause we had no need to get high
Yeah they were the ones who never did
They just ran their mouths and kept talkin' shit
And I'm pretty sure they beat their kids
And they live for the lie
Back in the day
Back in the day
And it's only loneliness
And it's only clenching fists
And I'm sure you catch my gist
But that's just the way we roll
It was a long, long time ago
When you laughed and said "I told you so"
And I know you know
There were far too many shades of your gray
Back in the day
Back in the day
