These Are Good Old Days

Oh, how I miss the ''Good Old Days''.  
Here I am Just thinking back to a time when I was young, an invincible rebel, living like there were no tomorrows. † † †
I was just another player in a band of high-strung passengers traveling warp speed and blazing through the ''Good Old Days''. † † †
And it seems that it was not so long ago that I was adventurous, bullet proof, and oblivious to all of life's indelible sorrows. † † †
†I often wish that I could go back in time and relive my fun filled reckless nights that are burned into my brain like a unstoppable fiery blaze. † † †
†† † †
Now, these are the ''Good Old Days''. † † †
... I just want to revel in all of the present pleasures of life. † † †
Time flies... hit pause, † † †
It's all the little things that I am going to miss in the coming years that will soon pass me by without sympathy or cause. † † †
† † †  
Oh, how I miss the ''Good Old Days'' † † †
I still have lingering regrets, wishing that I knew that I was living in the ''Good Old Days'' before I unknowingly soared through life so fast. † † †
I still stop and think of all my years gone by, back to a time when it felt like life talked to me, teaching me everything that I thought I that needed to know. † † †
Yet, life still remains remarkably defiant, keeping all of its secrets hidden in a mysterious place of wisdom incredibly treasured and vast. † † †
It is without regret that my carefree life's lessons remain permanently etched in my head, teaching me how to live and to grow. † † †
† † †  
Now, these are the ''Good Old Days''. † † †
... I just want to revel in all of the present pleasures of life. † † †
Time flies... hit pause, † † †
It's all the little things that I am going to miss in the coming years that will soon pass me by without sympathy or cause. † † †
† † †  
† † †  
Oh, how I miss the ''Good Old Days''. † † †
Am I still honestly missing those foolhardy days when doing something bold was simply just another day? † † †
I can always press rewind and play those memories in my head, which will always remain the keepsakes of some of the best times in my life. † † †
Yet those very special moments of reminiscence are just another reminder that leaving those outlandish days behind was life's ultimate price to pay. † † †
This wise old man has come to learn that embracing the present is pure gold for the new ''Good Old Days'', free from harm or strife. † † †
† † †  
Now, these are the ''Good Old Days''. † † †
... I just want to revel in all of the present pleasures of life. † † †
Time flies... hit pause, † † †
It's all the little things that I am going to miss in the coming years that will soon pass me by without sympathy or cause. † † †
† † †  
Time Flies... † † †
† † †  
''These are the Good Old Days''. † † †
† † †  
Hit Pause... † † †
† † †  
''These are the Good Old Days''. † † †
