Used To Be


Now long gone those childhood days
A distant memory lost in the haze
No more do they play the games we once did
No cowboys and Indians or Billy the Kid

Gone too are those days of innocent fun 
Discoloured by time they're over and done
The pace of life is so much faster these days
So little time to relax and bask, in the suns rays
