    love shouldn't treat you that way

     

    if you've got somebody that just holds you down

    love shouldn't treat you that way

    when you wanna fly but you're held to the ground

    reach up above the clouds

     

    when things go wrong and you're told you're to blame

    love shouldn't treat you that way

    if they don't change and things just stay the same

    tell yourself every day

    that love shouldn't treat you that way

     

         oh, why cry your eyes blue

         oh, when you don't have to

     

    cause if it feels like he just keeps you around

    love shouldn't treat you that way

    if you don't feel special - it's worse than it sounds

    stand up don't be afraid

    tell him love shouldn't treat you that way

     

         oh, why cry your eyes blue

         oh, when you don't have to

     

    if you've got somebody who just holds you down

    love shouldn't treat you that way

    when you wanna fly but you're held to the ground

    there's no reason to stay

    if love's gonna treat you that way

     

            don't go hide and cry - or just close your eyes

            look up make your self say

            love shouldn't treat you that way

    younger years

     

    Thought we were old enough,

    thought we were all grown up

    back in the fall of sixty-two

    Stuck in a steel town,

    I pushed the ore around

    You were sixteen, I was twenty-two

     

    We talked for days and days,

    we planned our getaway

    I put a ring on your left hand

    Your daddy disapproved,

    your momma cried for you

    There was no way they’d understand

     

         We felt we had the right

         so we took off one night

         No other choice was left to choose

         Back in those younger years

         we lived without those fears

         We thought there’s nothing we can lose

     

              Younger Years,

              we knew what we wanted then

              Younger Years,

              we reached out and took it in

              Younger Years, Younger Years

     

    A job was hard to find,

    long unemployment lines

    when we got down to our last dime

    With rent due on the first,

    it went from hard to worse

    Don’t know how we got through those times

     

         We could have given up

         Said that we’d had enough

         Somehow we put up a good fight

         Back in those Younger Years

         we brushed away the tears

         and just held on to you and I

     

              Younger Years,

              we knew what we wanted then

              Younger Years,

              we reached out and took it in

              Younger Years, Younger Years

     

                   Times are still tough and we just get by

                   It’s harder now to get up and try

     

         But in those Younger Years

         before we had these fears

         Our love could always get us by

     

              Younger Years,

              we knew what we wanted then

              Younger Years,

              we reached out and took it in

              Younger Years,

              Younger Years,

              we knew what we wanted then

              Younger Years,

              we reached out and took it in

              Younger Years, Younger Years

    long flat straight highway

     

    wouldn’t wanna’ live my life another way

    wouldn’t wanna’ change it, not a single day

    never had an urge to take that

    long flat straight highway

     

    never had to listen, yet i still could hear

    never had to focus just to see things clear

    didn’t take a lot for me to up and disappear

     

         had to make my own way round the madness

         had to seek a trail nobody was on

         had to learn to walk outside my shadow

         wouldn’t let a cloud confine me

         couldn’t let the sun not find me

     

         solo

     

         had to make my own way round the madness

         had to seek a trail nobody was on

         had to learn to walk outside my shadow

         wouldn’t let a cloud confine me

         couldn’t let the sun not find me

     

    wouldn’t wanna’ live my life another way

    wouldn’t wanna’ change it, not a single day

    never had an urge to take that

    long flat straight highway
