lyrics

Some days I wonder if my life is moving way too fast
the memories of names and faces, people from my past
had no worries to alarm me, my whole days would waste away
we ate China Fruit and Bunny Chows like every other day
and in the summer we would swim and my old friends would play outside
talking ‘bout the girls at school until the early morning light
on the corner we would daydream ‘bout the day when we’d all be
grown up and chasing dreams

Chorus
On this rollercoaster no-one can get over
new burdens to bare, the silver’s in your hair
on this rollercoaster everyone gets older
no don’t be afraid, it all will be okay in the end
in the end...

Those little boys are grown up, most of us are doing life
some of them are getting married, some have children on the side
man, the world we used to know is getting smaller all the time
now it’s mortgages and maintenance and endless grocery lines

Chorus

Those were the days out in the veld we’d fly our kites
we’d stick empty Coke cans in the rear wheels of our mountain bikes
and these are the days when I need help to sleep at night
these are the days, these are the days, these are the days
and those were the days when my girl’s parents would go out
I’d sneak through her bedroom window, kiss her ‘til the sun went down
and these are the days when memories still get me down
these are days

Chorus
