Blues Traveler Back In The Day Lyrics

It’s been a while since I’ve left home

But I’m coming on back today

Kinda funny but I picture it only exactly as it

was back in the day

Sure enough when the train pulls in

There’s so little that I recognize

Is it the scenery or my selective memory

Or just a simple fact that I gotta realize

My friends have gone and their lives have

moved on and I guess that’s just the way it is

If this town has grown beyond my home

I guess it all comes down to this

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day

But those times have long been through

The dying of the light is gone

But it’s back in the day

Like a wish that comes half true

There was a time when it was easy to find a

hangout that you knew was yours by name

And mine or not I could find the same spot but

it’s never gonna be the same

I’ve been away and I’ve seen too much

Looks like I’ve been moving on as well

And when I started to not really belong

I suppose I was unable to tell

But I ain’t sad and no it isn’t bad

It’s just one more thing I’m coming to know

If you’re alive you didn’t finish the ride

No telling where it’s going to go

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day

But those times have long been through

The dying of the light is gone

But it’s back in the day

Like a wish that comes half true

It’s been a while since I left home

But I’m coming on back today

Kinda funny but I picture it only exactly as it

was back in the day

I close my eyes and feel like it was back in the day

But those times have long been through

The dying of the light is gone

But it’s back in the day

Like a wish that comes half true
