lyrics

Those good old days I hear about, they seem so long ago
I’m running cold and hungry from these bad new days I know
And if walkin’ back in time was just like walkin’ through a door
I would take you out to dinner back in 1954

A woman takes her son to school, her husband works the mines
He’s flyin’ in and flyin’ out and she says she doesn’t mind
But if time’s a box of matches, with each match a single day
Well you could see her candles burning from a thousand miles away

A city man says “Son, I’m gonna tell you what I need.
For my hands to break the ground apart so I can plant a seed
And if time was like a blanket and I could fold it with my hand
Well I would leave this city life behind and buy myself some land”

For her sons a dying mother writes a book to leave behind
“Hold on to my memory and to all the love you find.
And if time was like a dog and I could make it sit and stay
Well I would give us all the time we want before I slip away.”
