Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Look at those lights behind the trees
don't the highway sound like the ocean?
Lookin' at you right next to me
the stillness feels like emotion.

I got the feelin'
You got the feelin'
Don't you know what I mean?

We're giddy like high school down by the pool
At the hotel in the sea.
If I didn't know all the things you done
I'd swear that I need ya.

I got the feelin'
You got the feelin'
But I know where you been.

I wish I would have met you
When I was seventeen.
Before I seen the things that I seen.
Before I learned to look behind the screen.
I think we could have had a good time.

Well I used to get down in any town
Any time I got the notion.
Follow each girl to the end of the world
No, I never looked down.

Now I'm up above with a feelin' of love
I got my arms around you.
And the weight of the band on my left hand
You know it keeps me on the ground.

I got the feelin'
You got the feelin'
Don't you know what I mean?

I wish I'd met you
When I was seventeen.
Before I kept my hands so clean.
Before you went and made some fool your queen.
I think we could have had a good time.

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
