Do you remember back when walls were high
And you had to really try to find your way?
Did you feel cut off from your friends back home
Without your mobile phone to pass your time away?
I can't begin to understand how you were walking
Hand in hand with people who shaped this world
If I could just be half the girl I see when I look at you so

Tell me 'bout all the things you did
When your jeans were flared and your hair was big
Screens were grey, what's it like to play my role back then?
I was told to never look back 'cause everyone knows that the world ain't flat
Sit me down and turn me around to way back when, yeah

Seeing you now I question how we've changed
Our generation games not one I played
From big to small I know you've seen it all aow i live my life by the things you gave
You felt like you were in a safer place,
Didn't have to hide your face just to fit within the rules
And the worlds all yours so

Tell me 'bout all the things you did
When your jeans were flared and your hair was big
Screens were grey, what's it like to play my role back then?
I was told to never look back 'cause everyone knows that the world ain't flat
So sit me down and turn me around to way back when, yeah

We've got to keep it all alive and help your history survive
Respect the people who were here before us
Now tell me what you think about this
Can you see all the things that we've missed?
So we'll begin to write some stories of our own

Tell me 'bout all the things you did
When your jeans were flared and your hair was big
Screens were grey, what's it like to play my role back then?
I was told to never look back 'cause everyone knows that the world ain't flat
So sit me down and turn me around to way back when

Tell me 'bout all the things you did
When your jeans were flared and your hair was big
Screens were grey, what's it like to play my role back then?
I was told to never look back 'cause everyone knows that the world ain't flat
So sit me down and turn me around to way back when
