Praying Mantis – Best Years


Artist: Praying Mantis
Album: Forever in Time
Year: 1998

Lyrics:
Do you remember there were five of us,
Or maybe more
We’d be together day by day
We’d miss off school and hope that
No one else would know for sure
Living dangerously that way

Searching memories of our yesterdays
Far too strong to fade away
Every moment has it’s lifetime,
And each lifetime
Has it’s day
I’m chasing shadows all the way

I’m living on memories
Holding onto all my childhood dreams
Those were the best years of my life
I’m looking at the photographs
Checking out the way we use to laugh
Those were the best years of my life

There was a time when everything,
We did was always bad
Running wild without a care
And when those smiling faces changed,
From happiness to sad
Look around you don’t despair

Searching memories of our yesterdays
Far too strong to fade away
Every moment has it’s lifetime,
And each lifetime
Has it’s day
I’m chasing shadows all the way

I’m living on memories
Holding onto all my childhood dreams
Those were the best years of my life
I’m looking at the photographs
Checking out the way we use to laugh
Those were the best years of my life
