I’m feeling uncertain, I need to be sure
These people we knew, we don’t know anymore
Friends become distant, it’s not like before
It’s strange how so much has changed since back in the day

In school it was different, we also used to chat
But now we don’t speak, dam, how crazy is that?
All that I wish is that we could go back
It’s strange how so much has changed since back in the day

Blizzard - Back In the Day lyrics meaning

Meaning

Blizzard's official lyric explanation


I think one of the main things that a lot of people find when you leave school is that people just go in different directions and you just don’t meet in the middle anymore.

Some people go to Uni. Some people move out of the country, some people move out of the city - you know what I mean. It’s just the way things go.

But then, also, there’s people that you see their true colours when they leave school and you see the kind of person they really are because you’re not blinded by the façade of having to live like… be controlled by rules in a school environment. You see them for the person they are.

So, people just do distance and it’s the way it goes.
