I want to go back to when my whole life was carefree
Where what I’d bring to school for snack was my biggest worry
To where our hearts were young and innocent, we were content just playing all day
Where no rules caged our imaginations
Did what we wanted to do, said what we wanted to say
I want to go back to when drama was a word that didn’t even exist
Where violence didn’t even come into play, nobody dare held up their fist
To where I was a friend with anyone, in that there was no doubt
I had no reason to point out peoples’ flaws, and use it to leave them out
I want to go back to when boys kind of had cooties
They didn’t cause our emotions to freak
Where I “married” a kid on the hill by the playground and got kissed sweetly on the cheek
To where there was no pressure to be somebody I wasn’t, or do things I didn’t want to do
Where I could always be myself, inside and out I was always true
I think today’s worries seem like such a big deal because we compare them to the past
All at once the changes hit us real hard when we realize how the years fly by so fast
Yet in 10 years from now, I’ll want to go back to today, but I’ll know there’s no way how
But 10 years from now seems like forever away, I shouldn’t worry about that now
So you’ve got to grab life by the moment, take it all in and don’t ask why
If you don’t live today like there’s no tomorrow
All your life will just pass by
So I want to go back to when I didn’t worry about all this, nothing was trailing behind
I just want everything to be simple again
Please just press rewind
