THOSE WERE THE DAYS

Description
I wrote this song exactly one year ago
I'm not much into Christmas standards so I wrote a more gospel like song
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011

Lyrics
Those were the days

See no past or future
It is all in a mist
It's just this tiny world
That is all that exists
Reminiscing on pasttimes
I can't see what's ahead
Things just ain't so clear
Right here in my head

A cold winter night
Two feet of snow
A cold, cold starry light
Just nowhere to go
Why can't it be Christmas
Each and every day?
Like in my childhood days
So much time to play

Those were the days
Those were the days

These times are so confusing
I better hang on to my girl
She makes me feel secure
In this big and hostile world
And what about our baby?
She's still young and doesn't know
That the world is rapidly changing
And we are going low

Some memories caught up with me
Of days so long ago
When I was small and the world was big
How was I to know?
I can never go back
Just memories of my mom and dad
And some good friends
That I once had

Those were the days
Those were the days

Love them keys , I like how the strings and drums slip themselves into the composition! Very soothing! So true the lyrics on this some parts gave me goosebumps. Excellent!
