  • Remember days of yesterday
    And how it flew so fast
    The two score and a year we had,
    I thought would always last

    The summer days and west coast dreams,
    I wished would never end
    A young boy and his father,
    Idol and best friend

    I'll always remember
    Those were the best of times
    A lifetime together
    I'll never forget

    Morning shows on the radio
    The case of the missing dog
    Lying on the fields at the only twelve
    Watching Harold and Maude

    Record shops, the stick-ball fields
    My home away from home
    When we weren't together
    The hours on the phone

    I'll always remember
    Those were the best of times
    I'll cherish them forever
    The best of times

    But then came the call
    Our lives changed forever more
    You can pray for a change
    But prepare for the end

    The fleeting winds of time
    Flying through each day
    All the things I should have done
    But time just slipped away
    Remember "seize the day"
    Life goes by in the blink of an eye
    There's so much left to say

    These were the best of times
    I'll miss these days
    Your spirit led my life each day

    Thank you for the inspiration
    Thank you for the smiles
    All the unconditional love
    That carried me for miles
    It carried me for miles
    But most of all thank you for my life

    These were the best of times
    I'll miss these days
    Your spirit led my life each day
    My heart is bleeding bad
    But I'll be okay
    Your spirit guides my life each day
