When Summers Stood Still

lyrics

I've had some time now the future's come
The river still glistens in the mid-day sun
Like cotton bud clouds i float with ease
Like blossom i drift in the evening breeze

My thoughts go back to my childhood ways
When summers stood still in a dreamlike haze
We played in parks till the dusk of night
With nothing to fear in the bright moonlight

Oh oh i finally see it's not all about me
Oh oh i finally see it's not all about me

Now's the time i'll find my way
No more the worrier of things i can't change
I'll raise a glass to the setting sun
And drink a toast to all my loved ones

Oh oh i finally see it's not all about me
Oh oh i finally see it's not all about me
Oh oh i finally see it's not all about me
