"'73" as written by Jennifer Hanson, Michael Heeney and A.j. Masters....
Southern California, standin' in the drive
A picture perfect moment, frozen in time
Mom holdin' dad, dad holdin' me in '73

There's me in that striped dress, beneath the Big Boy sign
Bottom of the Polaroid says fall of '79
Yeah, that's the night that Dad tried to explain to me
Why he had to leave

Everythin' changes, hey, that's reality
Sometimes I wonder how all our lives would be
If they'd a stayed in love like they were in '73

Here's pictures openin' presents, December '83
Some with mom and some with dad, two different Christmas trees
And there's me and my new half brother
In his baby blue outfit, winter '86

Mom and I, we both survived those awkward teenage years
Graduation '91, dad flew back to be there
There's me in my cap and gown
Standin' between them, the three of us again

Everythin' changes, hey, that's reality
Sometimes I wonder how all our lives would be
If they'd a stayed in love

Everythin' changes, hey, that's reality
Sometimes I wonder how all our lives would be
If they'd 'a stayed in love like they were in '73
'73, '73, '73
