I remember we were standing on the street in the rain
Downtown where none of us will ever afford to live again
You were looking for your cigarettes in your purse and you cursed
And I fell in love with the sound of that obscene and lovely word

You were older you were vicious
I was younger and not suspicious
That I was being fucked around
I was I was I was I was I don’t want to talk about it now

Unless I see my face ten years don’t seem like a long time
Well I’m older now than you were then
When I was your younger man

I remember we were running from whoever you left before me
I remember being dumb and drunk and happy
I remember you squinting as the smoke got in your eyes
And being IDed following you into bars while you stalked other guys

Until I see my face ten years don’t seem like such a long time
But I’m older now than you were then
When I, when I – I …

Ba da ba da ba da ba da ba da ba
Ba da ba da ba da ba da ba ba

Ooohhh

Everyone said it would end badly
It took a while but it did
And I hung my head sadly
And I got used to it

I’ll see you at some funeral
I’ve got a few in mind
We’ll be fighting but I’ll be smiling
Because I’ll remember the time

When I saw your face I thought ten years is such a long time
Well I’m older now than you were then
When I, when I…

when i saw your face and thought ten years ain't such a long time…
Well I’m older now than you were then
When I was your younger man, your younger, oh your younger man
your younger man, your younger, oh your younger man

    General CommentPretty self explanitory. Narrator's in a relationship with an older woman, while he's barely a man. It ends badly. and then he becomes older than she was at the time they were together and realizes that everyone who told him that dating an older woman wasn't a good idea was probably right.

    The end.
