I can say I knew you well, as well as anybody could
I can say I knew you when we were young
& a long time ago, took your hand, pulled you close
You pulled away & blamed the cold & the time

If I was young I would go back
& pick you up against your will
Take you with me everywhere that I go
If I had you I’d give money & all the love that you could hold
& every morning we’d go dancing
If I had you I would be gold

They say not to dwell on the things that we can’t have
& to leave what’s been done in the past
But the memories come in
& some get left behind
But the sun won’t go away just ‘cause you ask

If I was young I would go back
& pick you up against your will
Take you with me everywhere that I go
If I had you I’d give money & all the love that you could hold
& every morning we’d go dancing
If I had you I would be gold
If I had you I would be gold

Still sometimes late at night
In my dreams, I’ll drift away
To the place I left alone for so many years
& there you are, just like before
& here I am just like today
As I wake up, I’ll watch you disappear

If I was young I would go back
& pick you up against your will
Take you with me everywhere that I go
If I had you I’d give money & all the love that you could hold
& every morning we’d go dancing
If I had you I would be gold
If I had you I would be gold
