lyrics

1985

AND SHE TALKED ABOUT A PHOTO I’VE LONG SINCE TRIED TO FORGET.
RED FACED, MISSING TEETH, AND SUN DRENCHED
I’M NOT SURE I COULD EVEN THINK AT THAT AGE.
TO PICTURE IT NOW BRINGS THE LUMP BACK TO MY THROAT.
MADE UP MEMORIES JUST SO YOU COULD SMILE
GROWING UP I HAD NO CHOICE JUST TO ACCEPT YOU AS YOU WERE.
TO THE POINT , NO ROOM FOR LOVE I NEEDED SOMETHING MORE


AND YOU FAKED IT FOR THE ROOM WHEN ALL EYES WERE ON US
AND TOSSED ASIDE WITH GALANT PRIDE IT WA SO EASY FOR YOU
I LOOKED UP TO HER AND NOT TO YOU
I’ M SO SORRY FOR WHATEVER I DID
I DON’T BEAT MYSELF UP I WAS JUST A KID.


I’D LIKE TO THINK SOMEWHERE DEEP DOWN THERE WAS SOME KIND OF LOVE
TOO SCREWED UP T SHOWOR EVEN KNOW HOW IT SHOULD COME OUT
I DON’T FEEL BITTER I DON’T FEEL HATE I DON’T FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL
NOT WASTED YEARS OR PILLOW TEARS IT MADE ME LOVE HER MORE.


THE YEARS HAVE PASSED AND I’VE COME TO LOOK AT YOU WITH LOVE.
FOR A MAN THAT STOOD SO SMALL I HAVE COME TO LOVE.
I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND IT , DON’T THINK I EVER WILL
BUT I BELIEVE YOU DID YOUR BEST
AND YOUR BEST IS ALL YOU DID.
