"Live Those Songs" as written by and Cole Degges David Lowe....
Saw him sittin' on a sidewalk in Fresno...
Braided hair and a tye-dyed t-shirt on.
Talkin' to himself about Vietnam,
About the tour he did and the deal he got.
He said,"This world ain't the same if you ask me.
If I could be somewhere else,
I'd tell you where I'd be...

[Chorus:]
I'd be rollin' on a river with Creedence.
Stealin' kisses from Peggy Sue.
I'd be knee-deep in sand on
A Panama Beach In the spring of '72.
I'd be wastin' away on the dock of the bay,
Watchin' the tide roll in.
He said,"What I wouldn't give just to
Live those songs again."

Saw him workin' the counter at Walgreens...
With a new haircut and a Bachelor's Degree.
Talkin' to himself about his raw deal,
Cussin' Uncle Sam and the GI bill.
He said,"This world ain't the same if you ask me.
If I could be somewhere else,
I'd tell you where I'd be...

[Chorus:]

He said,"This world ain't the same if you ask me.
If I could be somewhere else,
I'd tell you where I'd be...

[Chorus:]

    General CommentThis song, in my opinion talks about how sometimes songs classify periods of memories of your life. Either you hear a song and think of someone...or a experience in your life, happy or sad.
    I love this song because I feel the same way.
    I had a bad break up once and the guy after dedicated the song 99 problems to me...so when I hear that song Isometimes cry about those memories. Peace my friends.

    General Commenti agree with you kelster. My life is written by songs. A certain song can my you happy or break your heart. It brings back memories you've let go of or secrets you've kept hidden. Even though the people I'm surrounded by have changed, and some have come and gone, a certain song can remind me of someone from my past. Whether the relationship ended good or bad, I'm reminded of the times I shared with them, the fun we've had and the tears we've cried. I'm thankful everyday for those memories, like I said good or bad, they make me who I am.
