Dear Mom and Dad
Where did I go wrong
I've waited all these nights
It's been so very long
I miss those times I had
Back when I was young
Playing games outside
Until the night was done

All the time that we spent talking
All the streets that we went walking
With all the time in the world
Listening to all we heard
We used to have such fun
Sitting out in the sun
But there's not a lot to do
When the whole world catches up to you

Give me the time, I'll write a rhyme
About the life in which I spent my youth
And how I'll never quite live like that again
Give me a place, I'll give you a time
Where we can talk about our childhood games
From the bikes and trains to hours in rain

We can only
Reminisce
About our youth
And how it's missed

All the time that we spent talking
All the streets that we went walking
With all the time in the world
Listening to all we heard
We used to have such fun
Sitting out in the sun
But there's not a lot to do
When the whole world catches up to you

Trying (Trying!) Trying (Trying!)
Not to give up in this world
Trying (Trying!) Trying (Trying!)
To see a bit more clearl
Trying (Trying!) Trying (Trying!)
Living! Loving! Crying! Feeling!
Trying (Trying!) Trying (Trying!)
Not to give up in this world

All the time that we spent talking
All the streets that we went walking
With all the time in the world
Listening to all we heard
We used to have such fun
Sitting out in the sun
But there's not a lot to do
When the whole world catches up to you

Dear Mom and Dad
Where did I go wrong
I've waited all these nights
It's been so very long
I miss those times I had
Back when I was young
Playing games outside
Until the night was done
