Written by Hunter Johnson


I been sitting down here pondering my life and looking back
At the foolishness of youth and all the fun I had
I cant help but wonder if them days are gone for good
I'd like to think that they ain't over
time wasted just aint no good

All the things I wish I'd dont you know I finally made amends
If I could turn back time I'd do them all again

Except I would have kissed you on the lips that night under the moon shining bright
Said to hell with all my worries, tried to take love for a ride
Sold all of my belongings, backpacked across the USA
I want to be that train laying down my own tracks.
I want the younger me back

I've got a good friend who settled down
Got a wife and kids of his own.
Somethimes we get to talking about life and how it unfolds
A couple of beers later he's reminiscing about days gone by and all the things he wished he would have done that passed in the blink of an eye.
Through the trials and tribulations he says I'm still a happy man
Theres just a couple of things that I'd like to do again.

I want to drive out to Colorado cross the Wyoming plains
Jet set across the pacific see the rising sun of Japan
Set sail out to an island and call it by my own name
I want to be that train layin down my own tracks.
I want the younger me back

Through all the ups and downs and all the rights and wrongs
theres just a couple of things that I wish I'd done.

I want to chase all my dreams down
never let them get away.
Do all the thing I talked about but put off for another day
I want to fuel my fire with love and happiness
I want to be that train layin down my own tracks.
I want the younger me back.
