There was a time we had so little
But we thought it was so much
There was a time we had no control
And we lost our touch

So much emotion, so many days past
So many things we thought would last
Everything, it seemed so big
So much invested in the past

We're still dreaming
We're still believing
No longer looking for the new thing

Sometimes we look but it's hard to see
Lost inside a memory
Thinking of all the good times gone by
But that was yesterday's high

We're still dreaming
We're still believing
No longer looking for the new thing

Wasted too much time chasing dragons in our dreams
Funny how hard it was to see life's not so complicated
So complicated as it seems

We're still dreaming
We're still believing
No longer looking for the new thing

    General CommentMaybe I listen to too much NOFX, but the "there was a time we had no control, and we lost our touch" lines make me think of No Control by Bad Religion and Don't Lose Touch by Against Me! out of instinct.
