Tim Gleeson Band: Music

Some Of Us

(Tim Gleeson)
September 19, 2018
Gleeson and Graham

We played kick the can and hide and seek 

Used to hit dark and hide under the willow tree 

Climbed the fire tower

Just to see if we could

It might a been crazy but it sure was good


It was certainly a different day, a different time, a different world 


Some of us died young and some of us lived

Some of us took 

What some of us would give

Some of us came from the bad side of town 

Some of us said we ain’t ever comin’ down

We had all the wrong and right stuff… some of us


We danced up real close right into the night

Used to laugh and drink and wonder what to do with our lives

And we sang our share of fire and rain

And thought that everything would always be the same


It was easily the time of change, a time of our hearts

A time to believe


Some of us died young and some of us lived

Some of us took 

While some of us would give

Some of us came from the bad side of town 

Some of us said we ain’t ever goin’ down

We had all the wrong and right stuff… some of us


We couldn’t see the forest from under that tree

Just a bunch of kids runnin’ wild and free

We said that the world might understand 

If we found a way if we had a plan

We could make it work

Don’t know for sure what that was worth 


Some of us died young and some of us lived

Some of us took 

What some of us would give

Some of us came from the bad side of town 

Some of us said we ain’t ever comin’ down

We had all the wrong and right stuff… some of us
