I wrote a letter to the president
I told him when my mother was younger
things were different
they were different

I wrote a letter to an astronaut
I told him when my mother was younger
he was soaring to the moon

Things were different back then,
and now they’re different too

I wrote a long list on sanctity
I could have sworn that
love was something no matter
who was loving who

Things were different back then
they’re gonna be different soon

Throw your old ways to the wind
and watch them spin

I wrote a letter to an empty shell
I asked it for the room to put all these broken records to rest

Things were different back then
so sing a different tune

Clean your attic
and your basement
put your old thoughts
on the table
all the world is a garage sale
and it’s time now
to let these things go

I wrote a letter to the president
I told him when my grandchildren grow
things will be different, they’ll be different

things were different back then
and now they’re different too
things were different back then
and now they’re different too
