This song, lately, has provided me a lot of solace. I come across it from time to time and the thing it reminds me, is that not only are those days in the past good, but that today’s just as good, and tomorrow is just as bright.
Let us not forget.
Particularly, these lyrics sing their teeth deeply into my soul:
Never thought we’d get old, maybe we’re still young
Maybe we always look back and think it was better than it was
Maybe these are the moments
Maybe I’ve been missing what it’s about
Been scared of the future, thinking about the past
While missing out on now
We’ve come so far, I guess I’m proud
And I ain’t worried about the wrinkles around my smile
I’ve got some scars, I’ve been around
I’ve felt some pain, I’ve seen some things, but I’m here now
Those good old days
Remember each day has the possibility of being a “good old day.”
