It's raining tonight
And the smell of the breeze through my window
Oh it reminds me of when I was a child, oh
Am I lying just awake
I close my eyes, it's like I'm almost there
Things felt like magic then

And I think (and I think)
And I think to myself
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three
Everyday it seems more like all magic's behind me
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three

It was simple back then
Looking out of this same window
Oh, back when I was a child
Before my friends past away
Before my trust had to be earned
And that first drink that lasted ten years

And I think (and I think)
And I think to myself
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three
Everyday it seems more like all magic's behind me
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three

Summer days lying in the grass
The world seemed bigger then
I can never find a word for that feeling until she told me her name
It's what perfect means to me
She smiled at me last night
Rubbing her finger in the palm of her hand
That's when I knew that I was dreaming
I can't dream anymore

If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three
Everyday it seems more like all magic's behind me
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three
Like twenty three
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three
Everyday is seems more like all magic's behind me
If I knew my father then I would ask
If it felt like this at twenty three
Hey eh eh...

    General Commentthis is such a sad. he's drenched in a wave of nostalgia, longing for his father. he doesn't know his dad, maybe because he left when he was young or he's passed away. he misses him all the same and wants to ask him for advice but can't. he wishes he was a child again, life was so much easier then.

    General CommentI think the chorus actually goes...

    If I knew my father then I would ask
    If he* felt like this at twenty three
    Everyday it seems more like the* magic's behind me
