Where Did It Go?

Written By David E. Young , 2002
Verse 1:
It seems, no so long ago,
That people appreciated art.
It seems, not so long ago,
That our lives weren’t far apart.

Chorus 1:
Where did it go, the time together,
When we were young, and loved each other?
Is it too late to love again?
Are simple pleasures gone forever?

Verse 2:
We used to laugh so easily,
Like water falling down a slide.
You used to run so gracefully,
Fly back and forth like the tide.

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Verse 3:

You once could smile a storm away,
And thunder was a big laugh.
The rain was inviting as the sun,
No worries of cold or draft.

(Repeat Chorus 1)

Chorus 2:

Now time has gone, and hidden well.
Sadness seems to have cast a spell.
How do I reach inside your soul,
And find the joy that made you whole?

(Musical Interlude)

Verse 4:
Once we were young, happy and free,
All of our goals ahead.
Where did it go?  Is it too late?
Why must we give in to dread?

Chorus 3:
We don’t!  It isn’t too late!
I refuse to give in to everyone’s fate!
I’ll rise up again, back like the tide!
And I’ll see you in happiness abide,

With me.
You can be free,
Again with me.
The day is here.
Oh, can’t you see?

Verse 5:
We can be carefree and notice what’s small.
We can enjoy our time in the fall.
Beauty is found, if you just look
At what you have – a life worth a book!

We’re Free!
