Lyrics

A child of the 1960's
Growing up with Captain Kangaroo
Track homes and veterans with their families
California sunshine was all we knew

Lost in the years
Lost in the years
I fight with the hands of time
I'm lost in the tears
Lost in my fears
Lost in the years gone by

Our Ford Ranchero was our chariot
Two-tone blue and white with fold down seats
To the mountains to the beaches it would carry us
And to the drive-in movies down the street

Lost in the years
Lost in the years
I fight with the hands of time
I'm lost in the tears
Lost in my fears
Lost in the years gone by

Assassinations civil rights and Vietnam
The Mick retires and Shepard took his ride
Living color pizza man and protest songs
Backyard shelters in case the Russians lied

Our parents would save us from life's sorrows
I prayed they'd live forever and a day
But dad went first and mom was soon to follow
A puff of smoke our innocence decayed

Lost in the years
Lost in the years
I fight with the hands of time
I'm lost in the tears
Lost in my fears
Lost in the years gone by
