Well I've thought about the things I need
And I'm willing just to let them be
There is nothing that I'd want anyway
That could take the place of you
And all the things you do and say (oh yeah)

We've come so very far in such a little time
And looking back there is only you that I find
Who was willing to give and maybe lose
You've got me tying up my walking shoes
These walking shoes

Twenty years on the run
I've only known a setting sun
Burning out on a lonely road
I've come to feel a lighter load

And now it's time we can turn the page
I believe you and I have come of age
All along it was there to see
What was really meant to be

Ooooh baby it's a game the only one in town
It's a game all the changes going round
It's taken twenty years to get it on the way
And all I had to do was play
All I had to do was play

    When "Indian Summer" was chosen as the single from the album of the same name instead of "Twenty Year" or "Livin' In the Band", I was terribly disappointed since both of those songs rocked! (No slight intended toward "Indiana Summer", which is a fantastic song.) "Twenty Years" has a great R & B flavor that is highlighted by Paul and Rusty trading guitar solos. George Grantham and Timothy B. Schmit are in top form as the band's rhythm section here, and Tim's harmonies are, as always, great. Should have been a single...and it should have been included on the recently issued "Poco Gold"...
