Back In the Day


The sun’s coming up, I’m trying to remember
Just where I was when the sun went down
The moon and the stars are all gone to sleeping
The ghosts of the night are leaving this town

CHORUS
Back in the day, don’t you remember
The pipers would play when we came around
Love was a song we sang all night long
Now I want to get back to the day

What’s up with you did I hear you sighing?
Did I see a tear appear in your eye?
Did you really say you heard a bell tolling?
Did you really say you might step aside?

Repeat CHORUS

Back when the stars were endlessly shining
We wore the night like a crown
Sweet sweet romance we were constantly finding
Our feet never touched on the ground

Sun’s coming up I’m trying to remember
Just where I was when the sun went down
The moon and the stars are all gone to sleeping
The ghosts of the night are leaving this town (times 3)
