I BET YOU WANT TO BE A KID AGAIN
RUNNING FOR THE SLIP N SLIDE
LEARNING HOW TO READ & MULTIPLY
SITTING ON YOUR GRANDMAS LAP
TAKING LONG BATHS TAKING LONG NAPS
REMEMBER WHEN WE BUILT THOSE PILLOW FORTS?
& USED STICKS FOR SWORDS?

ALL THAT MATTERED WAS OUR TIME WITH EACH OTHER
LIFE WAS SIMPLE & OUR DOUBTS WERE YEARS AWAY
& LOVE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER GAME
WE WANTED TO PLAY IN THE SALAD DAYS

IN THE SALAD DAYS

I BET YOU WANT TO BE A KID AGAIN
HANGING ON THE MONKEY BARS
LEARNING HOW TO PAINT & PLAY GUITAR
SITTING ON YOUR GRANDPAS SWING
SIPPING ICED TEA LICKING ICE CREAM
REMEMBER WHEN WE BUILT THOSE DIRTBIKE JUMPS?
& USED STICKS FOR GUNS?

ALL THAT MATTERED WAS OUR TIME WITH EACH OTHER
LIFE WAS SIMPLE & OUR DOUBTS WERE YEARS AWAY
& LOVE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER GAME
WE WANTED TO PLAY IN THE SALAD DAYS

IN THE SALAD DAYS

IF YOU WERE A GIRL YOU WERE TRYING OUT LIPSTICK
IF YOU WERE A BOY YOU WERE TRYING OUT MATCHSTICKS
OPPOSITE GENDERS WERE TRYING OUT HUGS
& EVERYONE SWORE THEY WOULD NEVER TRY DRUGS
WE WERE PLAYING BOARDGAMES DRINKING JUICE BOXES
LEARNING HOW TO SKATE LISTENING TO PUNK ROCK
JUMPING ON THE MOONBOUNCE DIVING IN THE BALL PEN
& NEVER THINKING IT COULD EVER END

ALL THAT MATTERED WAS OUR TIME WITH EACH OTHER
LIFE WAS SIMPLE & OUR DOUBTS WERE YEARS AWAY
& LOVE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER GAME
WE WANTED TO PLAY IN THE SALAD DAYS

IN THE SALAD DAYS
