James Otto — These Are The Good Ole Days lyrics

I'm wastin' half of my life just lookin' back
Thinkin' all of my good times were in the past
Ain't no joy to be found livin' life like that

I couldn't feel the sunshine on my face
Everywhere that I'd go, I'd feel out of place
I finally figured out, I'd never win that race
Now I'm amazed to find

These are the good ole days that we've been livin'
No more lookin' back, all is forgiven
Ain't gonna live my life through no picture frame
These are the good ole days

Seems like people get lost talkin' 'bout some day
Something better will come and take them away
Never realize 'til it's too late
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/james-otto-these-are-the-good-ole-days-lyrics.html ]
It's the simple things that make life worthwhile
Like a warm summer day or a laughin' child
Or how it makes me feel just to see you smile
Baby you know it's true

These are the good ole days that we've been livin'
No more lookin' back all is forgiven
Ain't gonna live my life through no picture frame
These are the good ole days

These are the good ole days that we been livin'
No more lookin' back all is forgiven
Ain't gonna live my life through no picture frame, yeah

These are the good ole days that we been livin
No more lookin' back all is forgiven
Ain't gonna live my life through no picture frame
These are the good ole days
These are the good ole days
