Lyrics
Way Back When
ŠJ. D. Carroll
Creative Ventures Music


There never was a real good reason
for us to fall in love.
We didn't have a lot of money
we were barely friends
and our daddies were
plain old working men.

I'm sure there's no one out there thinking
that we would get this far.
Sharing our lives together
taking chances on ourselves.
What the hell were we thinking
Way Back When?

Chorus:

Way Back When
we didn't have a clue
we made mistakes together
and we learned a thing or two.

Way Back When
we pushed each other's buttons
as we struggled with our demons
and we helped each other through.

Way Back When
(not so long ago)
Way Back When
(not so long ago)
Way Back When
(not so long ago at all)

Some will say we were just plain lucky
and that may well be true
But I found that being lucky
takes a lot of work
and your always lucky
if your working on your dreams.

When the road unrolled before us
we were both quite unsure
Should we speed up or slow it down?
Did we miss a turn?
No GPS to follow
Way Back When.

Chorus

Bridge

Hooking up with old friends, laughing at the past.
Singing some old favorite songs from the radio.
Sure some hearts were broken, some dreams went unfulfilled.
Still its better trying to drive the car than wondering if it goes.

Instrumental

Chorus
