It happens to every generation
Chasing down the days like wild dogs
What I wouldn't give
To feel that way again
Makes me sad to see us now
And who we thought we'd be back then

There's always something taking up our time
There's always someone making up our mind
No time to take that trip
Or write that great stage play
Still not clear how I got here
From where I was yesterday

Took the long slow walk down Ocean Drive
Looking for a friend who ain't alive
He'd probably look at me
And say "man you've changed"
I'd look him in the eye but I'd probably lie
And say, "No man, I'm still the same."

The maudlin streets that
Coldly tell the time
In the Del Mar hills
A summer softly unwinds
And naked girls dance in the windows for free
Just Rasputin and me

Well I saw my ex last Saturday
It's hard to think eight years had slippped away
I barely recognized her
But what really got to me
Wasn't how old we'd become
But how young we used to be

It happens to every generation
Young love burning with anticipation
A love that will never
Tatter, tear or rend
If you need to believe that's true
Then don't ask me where I've been
