Take me back to the days
when I could not wait to wake up.
Weird hair, didn't care what to wear
Cause no matter what, I still felt loved.

Take me back to the days
when loosing a game was the worst thing I knew.
Getting thrills off the little stuff
that now I just can't do.

I can't stand growing up, I'm going too fast
Hold just a second, I missed my past
Yeah, being old has its perks,
but I miss my old friends.
And the way that she used to be
I wanna start again.

I can't stand growing up, I'm going too fast
Hold just a second, I missed my past
Yeah, being old has its perks,
but I miss my old friends.
And the way that she used to be
I wanna start again.

I miss everything
I wish that you could...

Take me back to the days when school wasn't a chore
Now I have to play hooky to hide from
the things that I used to, now want to ignore.

Take me back to the world that I knew
before the love was taken.
Another smile, drop and listen to
all the time stops and now...

I can't stand growing up, I'm going too fast
Hold just a second, I missed my past
Yeah, being old has its perks,
but I miss my old friends.
And the way that she used to be
I wanna start again.

I can't stand growing up, I'm going too fast
Hold just a second, I missed my past
Yeah, being old has its perks,
but I miss my old friends.
And the way that she used to be
I wanna start again.

Take me back to the days when I
hated to fall asleep.
If I could, I know I would
spend the day under my sheets.

Take me back to the life
where I could know myself again.
I wish I could, I wish I could
but I can't.

    General CommentWell i feel like this song is self explainatory. Its about how he's growing up and he hates how everything has changed including himself.
