"Back when we were Beautiful" as written by and Matraca Maria Berg....
I guess you had to be there, she said, you had to be
She handed me a yellow photograph and then said, see
This was my greatest love, my one and only love and this is me
Back when we were beautiful, see
I don't feel very different, she said, I know it's strange
I guess I've gotten used to these little aches and pains
But I still love to dance, you know we used to dance the night away
Back when we were beautiful, beautiful, yeah

I hate it when they say I'm aging gracefully
I fight it everyday, I guess they never see
I don't like this at all, what's happening to me
To me

But I really love my grandkids, she said, they're sweet to hold
They would have loved their grandpa, those awful jokes he told
You know, sometimes for a laugh the two of us would act like we were old
Back when we were beautiful, beautiful, yeah

But I guess you had to be there
