I know just where to begin
Singing my songs into the wind
Letting them just blow away
and never hearing them again
Friends of mine were in a band
Halifax was on the stands
and I thought I had a chance
to be like them

So I recorded and I sang
about the things that I knew of back then
Some kids who heard and saw me in them
at a time in their lives
when music was everything
It was everything

Loading up my red Tercell
with my guitar and things to sell
Getting to the Embassy hotel
just in time to play
The year was 1994
They were cross-legged on the floor
Listening to my bedroom wall
Oh those were the days

When I recorded and I sang
about the things that I knew of back then
Some kids who heard and saw me in them
at a time in our lives
when music was everything
It was everything

Then everything changed over the phone
California to my home
My hero's voice after the tone
Yeah, my mind was blown
Soon every note became a song
and I was rarely alone
Most of what I longed for was gone
so I shut things out

But I'm recording once again
while my kid is upstairs in bed
And I'll admit that now and then
that some nights when I'm strumming
or maybe just drumming
the music is still everything
Well, almost everything
