when I awoke I was ten again
and the heat rose in the fields again
and the sun rose in the haze again
and it was just the way it used to be

and you were alive again
when we ran through the woods again
there was sunlight on the stream again
just like the first day of the holidays

we made a swing, made it and laughed again
'til mum called us in, in from the fields again
she was so proud, proud of her boys again
and it was just the way it used to be

but as the years go by
all the strings we tied and connected us to home
pull us back like elastic bands, only everything is gone

there she was
by the lake again
the first girl I ever loved again
her cold lips and hands had changed
thought it was just the way it used to be

as the years go by
all the strings we tied that connected us to home
pull us back like elastic bands, only everything is gone
