When the summertime was ending
We went riding up to Skyline
The night it came a'falling
The city looked like diamonds down below, I do remember that

Your eyes they burned like embers
Your hands were cold as ice
I shuffled in my footsteps, I snapped my fingers twice
And thought, oh, we'd just go on like that

Oh, but what happened?
Seventeen was not enough
Oh, where's the time go?
We surely paid the cost.

Oh, I wish that I could tell you
Oh, but I can't find the words
Ooh, but when I know the answer
I'll get back to you, my friend.

We stayed out till the morning
We saw the dawning light
Nothing was deceiving, nothing was not right
and I thought, oh, can't we go on like this?

Oh, where's the time go?
It all just passes so fast
Waiting here's not the thing to do
I always thought that this would last.

Oh, I wish that I could tell you
Oh, but I can't find the words
Ooh, but when I know the answer
I'll get back to you, my friend.
I'll get back to you, my friend.
