Song for a Childhood Hero

Back when our lives ran parallel
Back when I thought I knew me well
Way before that last last lap bell
Peter if you've changed, brother I can't tell

Same as this road it all seems to stay the same
If anything is different it's only in a subtle way
Kinda like a tree after years of heavy rain
Despite all your growth, something's constant with the way your branches hang

Nostalgia hits and it's off to the races again
Going side by side down a side street with an old friend
Years removed
Same groove
We got the same roots

Ain't it fun to pretend
We're back in high school again
Don't know when we all grew into men
But I don't feel any different

I know now it looks smaller at 17
The world wide open, all mine for the taking
A boy and a dream, a track and a plan
Don't you wish it could all be so simple again?

Life to me is slow and oh so strange
Who'd have known the man would outlive the last name
More than anything, I think I miss the pain
And sharing it with some boys who seemed just as crazy

Ain't it fun to pretend
We're back in high school again
Don't know when we all grew into men
But I don't feel any different
