"'87" as written by Greggory A. Attonito, Shalendar S. Khichi, Bryan T. Kienlen and Peter William Steinkopf....
Do you remember when the days gone by
Or is there no point for us to even try
Back when we didn't have a care in the world, Getting drunk and chasing girls
Do you remember the days gone past
And how we always wanted the good times to last
The time we spent hanging out
Is how we learned what life is about
Everything is set for the perfect night
When music is playing and it sounds just right
It gets inside and helps you to be
All that you want and you are free
Those times that we all hoped would last
It seems that they've gone by so fast
I woke up one day and I was 25
With a hell of a hangover and some demented sense of pride
All we had was our dreams that's all we needed to be free
After the party came and went
I found myself half bent
I had to stop and look around
And my friends were all I found
All these things I thought were wrong
But these contradictions they made me strong
I know I can be free and it all came from inside of me
All we had was our dreams
That's all we needed to be free
Do you remember?
I do!
