"Early Years" as written by and Laura Cantrell....
The three years that I loved you
Were the best years, oh the early days
Yes those early days when I hung around
Followed you around trying to catch the sound
Of your warm voice coming through my radio
I went to the night clubs and the studios
And somehow I knew I would make it so
That you would love me in the sweetest way

One night I let you pick me up
Nice and easy
I knew the time had come that you would love me some
Soon our days and nights were busy
These were the crazy years; songs, cigarettes and tears
And I never thought much about it
How it all might change one day
I just let myself feel good about you
Way back in the early years

Those early years, those heady days
They rolled from one into the other
Then walked away
I was so naïve but I felt so strong
Way back in the early years

We took a drive on a windy day
We watched the seagulls glide
We saw the weather change
But sometimes I feel the coldest chill I got
Was from a look upon your face across the parking lot
And your sweet voice I still remember, but not the words I heard you say
We never made it through December at the end of the early years

Those early years, those heady days
They rolled from one into the other
Then walked away
I was so naïve but I felt so strong
Way back in the early years
