Lyrics

Verse 1:
Remember those days
When everything was ok
Just a kid running free
On the neighborhood streets
Lookin' for a friend who could play


Verse 2:
Remember those nights
Under the moonlight
Fishin' on the lake
Up until daybreak
Everything seemed so fine


Verse 3:
Remember those times
Summers and the sunshine
Hangin' out with the crowd
Gettin' rowdy and loud
Everything seemed so right


Chorus 1:
Ewww and Take me back, back home
To the place that I belong
That I long for home
where I'm saaaaaaaaaaafe and warm
Ewwww back home where the worries of today can't find me
woah-woah, home, you're a comforting memory


Verse 4:
Remember those days
The mistakes we made
So many good times
Livin' life in our prime
With the good Lord leadin' the way


Verse 5:
Such wonderful times
The whole world was mine
Takin' everything for granted
At a pace so frantic
Never knowin' quite how to unwind


Chorus 2:
Ewww and Take me back, back home
To the place that I belong, that I long for home
Where I'm safe and secure
Ewww back home, where these worries of today can't find me
Ewww home, you're always a friend to me


Bridge:
Searchin' for a love so true
A love that can carry you through
Someone who can share your dreams
Maybe it's not quite what it seems

Just a kid on his way back home
Heartbroken and all alone
Waiting for that special someone
to come along and make things different


Solo


Chorus 3:
Eww and Take me back, back home
To the place that I belong, that I long for home
Where I'm safe and secure
Ewwww home, where these worries of today can't find me
Ewwww home, your a blessed memory


Verse 6:
Well I'd sure like to know
Where'd these moments go
You Can't bring 'em back
Can't live in the past
Gotta move on down the road


Verse 7:
Lookin' back on those years
Happiness and tears
I Wouldn't change a thing
I'd do it over again
Bring my friends and family near


Chorus 4/Outro
Ewww and take me back, back home
To the place that I belong, that I long for home
Where I'm safe and secure
Ewwww home, where these worries of today can't find me
Ewww home, you're always a friend of mine
Ewww home, you're always a friend of mine
