5 Star Living (21st Century Demo)

Sometimes you just think about life
Everything you had it and it makes you look back
And reminisce over it all…you know…….

Sitting by the train tracks, thinking how I could ever make it back, til you heard of me,
Five star living I just had to take it in, funny how I couldn’t see it then, its absurd to me,
I had all these thoughts of my destination, wasnt thinking about the journey,
I saw people lose lives in the city, and I had to give them pity but I know I was learning,

But I still remember it all, i still remember the five star life,
Thinking about that every night,
But it was so simple I swear, everything back then felt so right,
Wishing I could live it twice,

Sometimes, i just watch the train go by while I reminisce,
Back then we were just kids, thinking it couldn’t get better than this,
I think we were right, nice neat streets when we cleaned up,
And people had us feeling like they need us, but faster than we knew it it was all done,

But I still remember it all, i still remember the five star life,
Thinking about that every night,
But it was so simple I swear, everything back then felt so right,
Wishing I could live it twice,

It was all so good to me, and it was all five star for us,
Thinking back it was hard to see, because so fast we were all grown up,
We made families and lost touch, some of us left the city too,
But when I say it was perfect, in my heart it was really true,

But I still remember it all, i still remember the five star life,
Thinking about that every night,
But it was so simple I swear, everything back then felt so right,
Wishing I could live it twice,

Down at the station where you catch the train walk under the subway and out again to the other side of the tracks you won’t see no mess won’t see no cracks
