Lyrics
"A couple of Lifetimes Ago" Copyright 2007 Rob Young

Verse 1

When I was a young boy,
man that was long ago...
Lived in a house
built by MacArthur just north of Tokyo

I played outside in the courtyard,
in the land of the rising sun
a cowboy hat, a plastic badge,
a holster and a gun

Chorus

It was before we had to grow up
way before we played for keeps
we dreamed of new tommorows
as we slowly drift a sleep.

the cherry blossoms bloomed each year
near the buddah that sat so still
and we drove around the country side
with my father behind the wheel

now that feels like
it sure do feel like
It feels like a couple of lifetimes ago

Verse 2

My folks they learned some Japanesee
it was enough to get us by
and my father, he climbed Mt Fuji,
it was way up in the sky

Me and my brothers bought some candy
with some Yen kept in this Jar
and we went to see a "Hard Day's Night"
at the drive-in in our car.

Chorus

It was before we had to grow up
way before we played for keeps
we dreamed of new tommorows
as we slowly drift a sleep.

the cherry blossoms bloomed each year
near the buddah that sat so still
and we drove around the country side
with my father behind the wheel

now that feels like
it sure do feel like
It feels like a couple of lifetimes ago

Verse 3

I finally made it back there
but the house had disappeared
a public park and a plaque that read
"Grant Heights" housing was here

but I have these photographs
with some faded memories
and I can tell you stories
of a place you'll never see

Chorus

It was before we had to grow up
way before we played for keeps
we dreamed of new tommorows
as we slowly drift a sleep.

the cherry blossoms bloomed each year
near the buddah that sat so still
and we drove around the country side
with my father behind the wheel

now that feels like
it sure do feel like
It feels like a couple of lifetimes ago
