1. Twenty-Two

From the recording Twenty-Two


[A different version of this song (same title) may be found in Rock I.]

When I held you near, life was clear
You and me against the world forevermore
But then that entirely intoxicating atmosphere
Gave way to the guy from next door

Now I have lived my life with no apology
I have so wanted to see you through the years
And now thanks to all these new realities
I just saw your face, and I’m holding back tears

There was magic in the air the day we met
I’d never seen a girl lovely as you
It was a time I will never forget
I wish I was still twenty-two

There may be nothing ever come of this
Unless you discover from this song
That I need to be saved from this dark abyss
If you choose, come back to me where you belong


I wish I was still twenty-two
