  • 04:07 Story Lyrics
    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
