lyrics

Nineteen

We went walking on a Saturday in late February sun
We churned over all the wild dreams we dreamt when we were young
Now I don’t know if this old heart can take another blow
With years gone by we can’t deny all the pain we’ve come to know

Take me back to when I was nineteen
‘Cuz oh these decades they will grow you up
Can’t un-see what you’ve seen
I stack up lost innocent like old magazines
Wish I knew now only what I knew back when I was nineteen

By now we know how the promised spring comes on slowly every year
We wait under the last winter’s snow, try to shake off heavy fears
Now I don’t know if this old heart can take another frost
I’m a daffodil, my hope must bloom despite the risk of lost

Take me back to when I was nineteen
‘Cuz oh these decades they will grow you up
Can’t un-see what you’ve seen
Now I stack up lost innocent like old magazines
Wish I knew now only what I knew back when I was nineteen

I long for eternal sun,
Warm on my shoulders, dry my eyes
I long for eternal sun,
Make all this sadness come undone
Come undone

Take me back to when I was nineteen
‘Cuz oh these decades they will grow you up
Can’t un-see what you’ve seen
I stack up lost innocent like old magazines
Wish I knew now only what I knew back when I was…

I Wish I knew now only what I knew
Wish I knew now only what I knew
I Wish I knew know only what I knew
back when I was nineteen
