Where did those days go?

Breathless and exhausted

We work so hard

When we were kids at having fun

We played so many parts

Playing as if we were superheroes

And footballers in the park

We rode our bikes from the break of dawn

Until it was dark

Where did those days go?

When did that energy dissipate?

Where did the fun go?

Remember getting in trouble for staying out to late.

We played football most everyday

Jumpers for goalposts were the way

We dirtied our knees climbing trees

We got soaking wet exploring rivers and streams

We rode our bikes and skates all round town

We never far away if there was fun to be found

Where did those days go?

When did the energy dissipate?

Where did the fun go?

Remember getting in trouble for staying out late.

Safer times back then and safer days

That’s what we are told today

Maybe they’re right I am not sure

I just feel we made so much more of being young

So much more of our freedom

I feel sad for kids just stuck in their bedrooms

Living life in virtual reality

Living life through social media

That was not for me

I wanted always to be out

Burning off all my energy

And living life freely

Where did those days go?

When did the energy dissipate?

Where did the fun go?

Remember getting in trouble for staying out late.
