"Moving on from 1972 ain't an easy task," he said
Says he's been sober since she left him for dead
And the old man takes a swig of his non-alcoholic beer
And the tired man proudly takes a drag, it's been nearly 28 years.

And it still blows me away
How easily time is wasted
And it still blows me away
How easily were kept wounded
Anger is so real...

"Didn't mean to say the things I told you," I said
"Your interpretation was in your head.
I guess you could chock it up to a life experience
Go ahead and live your life while it's full of bitterness"

And it still blows me away
How easily time is wasted
And it still blows me away
How easily were kept wounded
Anger is so real...

And it still blows me away
How easily time is wasted
And it still blows me away
How easily were kept wounded
Anger is so real...

    In 1972 and probably years before the man was an alcoholic and finally one day (in 1972) his wife or girlfriend just gave up and left him. And that led him to decide (and succeed) to sober up.
