Story behind the song
nostalgia. my brother's wife just had their baby Ezra, their second, and so naturally, i've been thinking about them alot. thinking about them makes me think about family. and thinking about family makes me think back on the glory days, the blood and dirt days, the scabbed knees and grass stained jeans days...my childhood.
walking down the street of my home town, its a lazy afternoon in a quiet neighborhood
the dogs on their leash and someones bbqing
the charcoal's in the air, but i don't care, cuz i'm
flyin' down the hill on my orange huffy
i'm the fastest around, so i ride all over town
i've never been more free than i was then
with Golden Glove and baseball stuff
it was a good life with no worries
just cherry cokes and cold icees
shwinns and huffys were our cadillacs, and we were all heroes with our baseball bats
its the good life with friends around a fire in the back yard
Playin ditch and kick the can
all night long on this
warm minnesota summer night.
