Take A Trip Back

Family & Memories

I yearn for the past,

and what could have been.

I'd like to go back,

to the old days again.

I'd make my ways different,

change a couple of things.

Have a little more fun,

maybe a few more flings.

I would change some of my life,

say some things I should have said.

Now it seems so far behind,

cause time only goes ahead.

I love my life now,

I'd do that in the same way.

But it would be nice,

to go back for just one day.

The years have gone so quickly,

that life gone by so fast.

I think in a way, I'll always yearn,

to return into my past.
