Everyone in this town is saying the same thing
Wait until tomorrow, see what that brings
The moon rises, brings surprises to this small town
Johnny waits in line for the number nine

Talks aloud, remembering simpler times
When a girl was on his arm
And the world was full of charm
And the sun coming up meant a better day

He says, "Take me back
To a time I knew before
Before I opened my eyes
And knew I wanted more"

Anny waits in line at the five and dime
The men stare, she says she doesn't mind
There's seven mouths to feed
And she wears it on her sleeve
And she remembers the day she said she was gonna leave

She says, "Take me back
To a time I knew before
Before I opened my eyes
And knew I wanted more"

Oh, it's tough to follow
Time's not easy to swallow
And we all long for yesterday

We said take us back
To a time we knew before
Before we opened our eyes
And knew we wanted more
