It’s been a long time since I was twenty one



It’s been a long time since I was twenty one

Written By Dean Masciarelli

October 7, 2010 (9:25pm)


It’s been a long time since I was twenty one

And all of my peace signs 
and bell bottoms are gone

But I still listen to Crosby Still’s and Nash and Young

And the Allman brothers band and Stevie Ray Vaughn


Just like I had done way back then 

Its just hard to believe 
that 
all those days are gone

But I would do anything to 
turn back the hands of time

So that I could go back to the 
summer of nineteen sixty nine

A year before I had turned thirteen      

So that I could
have the opportunity 
to live through 
those days once again

Because the days were 
filled with peace signs 
and love from everyone

But after the war ended in Vietnam

Nothing would ever be the same 

But I cant turn back the hands of time

So for the time being I 
will just keep on moving on

While I reminisce down memory lane
