take me back to then lyrics – bobby caldwell

when i was young, i used to play
on the sand by the bay
what i’ve got now i’d give it all away
just to have some fun

life was all, i had a ship
and sailed it to the end
why can’t i go there again?

take me back to then
when life was mellow
where we had golden sun

take me back, i said
i can’t continue
with the world i’m in, oh

playing in the park
every afternoon
i’ve grown old, far too soon

someone please tell me why
i can’t be made to see
what good’s left in my life
is this the end of me?

there’s a tear for all the dreams
that i left behind
they’ll always be on my mind

take me back to then
when life was mellow
where we had golden sun

take me back, i said
i can’t continue
with the world i’m in

take me back to then
when life was mellow
where we had golden sun

take me back, i said
i can’t continue
with the world i’m in
