"Never Gonna Feel Like That Again" as written by and Phillip Coleman Paul Overstreet....
Friday night butterflies,
Like clockwork they'd arrive...
A little chill and the October sky.
Nervous till the kickoff game,
Four quarters win or lose...
Spent Saturday's black and blue.
But it was what I love to do,
And it was more than just a game.

It was my life and it was fun.
Another season of my life is done.
Another race I'm glad I got to run.
Another chapter in my life, it's over.
No I'm never gonna feel like that again,
Time's rushin' by me like the wind,
Never be as young as I was then,
No I'm never gonna feel like that again.

Practice dancin' in my garage,
Two left feet and a white corsage.
Daddy let me borrow the Dodge,
Said, "Don't bring her home on empty."
Swung by and picked up Cindy Lou,
Took her to the prom for a dance or two,
Then we drove to the water blue
And that's where she kissed me.

It was my life and it was fun.
Another season of my life is done.
Another race I'm glad I got to run.
Another chapter of my life, it's over.
No I'm never gonna feel like that again
Time's rushin' by me like the wind,
Never be as young as I was then.
No I'm never gonna feel like that again.

I got a call one July day,
Cindy Lou was in that way.
Had a big decision to make
And I couldn't take it lightly.
At first I thought of leavin' town
But I couldn't let our families down.
Now I'm out here throwin' this ball around
With a boy that looks just like me.

It's my life and it's sure fun.
Another season of my life's begun.
Another race I'm glad I get to run.
Another chapter of my life I'm writin'.
No I'm never gonna feel like this again.
Time's rushin' by me like the wind,
Got to grab each moment that I can,
'Cause I'm never gonna feel like this again.
No, I'm never gonna feel like this again.
Nooo...I'm never gonna feel like this again.

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. It's probably one of Kenny's best songs. Highly recommend it. Pretty obvious by the lyrics what it's about... How at the time everything seems so great and perfect and even though you look back and miss those days you know that one day you'll do the exact same thing to the present day down the road.

    KILL.

    General CommentI love this song. I get chills every time I hear "Now I'm out here throwin this ball around. With a boy that looks just like me."

    General CommentTo me the first 8 lines are most powerful: I just quited to take part in competitions and i really miss the adrenalin. I know I made the right choice, but I'll never feel like that again - being on the starting line and waiting for that shot...

    General CommentI agree with tugit. The opening verse of this song always reminds me of my senior year of high school football. All the memories...the wins, the losses, and the heartbreaking end to it all.

    Brings a tear to my eye on some nights.

    General CommentIt's about the glory days in high school playing football and him acknowledging that part of his life is over. It's also about going to prom with a girl
