We were just eighteen
When we got married
We had to keep our reputation
I was standing outside her bathroom door
And she said, "It's time we stop running"
That's when we knew
We were in trouble
That's when we knew
That they'd find us out

And here we are now
Watching the sun go down
We should have done things differently
But we can't turn back time

Now we're twenty three
Everything but happy
With a wife and a job that I can't stand
And the townspeople stare with their hating eyes
and their whispering burns in my ears

That's when I knew
I was in trouble
That's when I knew
Something had gone wrong

And here we are now
Watching the sun go down
We should have done things differently
But we can't turn back time

I woke from a dream the other night
I woke from a dream
Everything was fine
And I didn't have a bastard and a daughter and wife I can't stand, a job I can't stand
And I don't know if I can go on
Sometimes the kids are the only thing to keep me in love

And here we are now
Watching the sun go down
We should have done things differently
But we can't turn back time
No, we can't turn back time

We were just eighteen
