This is one of may favorite songs about the nostalgia of days gone by.
The song is beautifully crafted with vocals by lead singer Kenny Rogers plus backing vocals by Bill Champlin of the band, Chicago.

Here's my twist on those lyrics, reflecting my nostalgia for 2002:

It's been a long time since I walked through this old town
But, oh, how the memories start to flow
And there's the old video arcade, they finally closed it down
You could find me there every Friday night twenty years ago
I worked the counter at the cafe down the street
But nobody's left there I would know
On Saturday mornings that's where all my friends would meet
You'd be surprised what a dollar would buy twenty years ago

All my memories from those days come gather round me
What I'd give if they could take me back in time
Oh, it almost seems like yesterday, where do the good times go?
Life was so much easier twenty years ago

I guess I should stop by Mr. Johnson's great toy store
His only son was my friend Joe
But he joined the navy back in the year 2004
How could we know he would never come back twenty years ago

All my memories from those days come gather round me
What I'd give if they could take me back in time
Oh, it almost seems like yesterday, where do the good times go?
Life was so much easier twenty years ago
Oh, it almost seems like yesterday twenty years ago
