about

A song of nostalgia and wanting to spend time as a child again, before having to deal with the adult world and responsibilities.

lyrics

We would ride our bikes home from school
We would jump in our swimming pool
We would build castles in the sand
We would be living life without care

We would enjoy free afternoons
We would watch all the best cartoons
We would love Easter holidays
We would look forward to Christmas Day

A summer's holiday, by the window I'd stand
Looking out at Mother sitting in a chair on the sand
With a magazine in her hand
Those were the days
I'll always remember

Take me back to when our lives were easy
Take me back to no responsibility
To see again through my younger eyes
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989

Before radio lost appeal
Before emotions made us feel
Before there were deadlines to beat
And before we worked to make ends meet

A winter's night inside, by the fire I'd be
Listening to Father talk about his days out at sea
Oh the stories he'd tell for me!
Those were the nights
I'll always remember

Take me back to when our lives were easy
Take me back to no responsibility
To see again through my younger eyes
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989

Now time is my worst enemy
But time can't take my memories

I will never forget those days
I will keep our good times locked away
We were untouchable
We were invincible
And still I remember
I'll always remember...

Take me back to when our lives were easy
Take me back to no responsibility
To see again through my younger eyes
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989
Oh life was so much simpler in 1989
