I stumbled through visions, revealed my condition
As thoroughly taken with you
Your blue eyes shot through me, I changed irrevocably
The days of tomcatting were through
15 years old, what did I know?
I've never been one for a fight
I needed you then and every day since like a flower is needing sunlight

I guess that I gave it up then
This self that alludes weaker men
What was my young heart to do?
A girlfriend as pretty as you

There in my early twenties, I spent most of it running
But I never once missed my home
You were right there beside me, no idea who I would be
And I never once felt alone
Then somewhere all this bitterness got tougher to dismiss
And I started thinking a lot
There has got to be more to life, then simply man and wife
At least back then that's what I thought

I guess that you gave it up then
Yourself, for the sake of this man
How could your young heart agree?
A boyfriend as angry as me

I was gonna be something that I saw on TV
You were more like a warm spring that weathered the winter of me

I'm not that much older, there's so much that I still don't know
And nothing to blame but this love
I feel no more a man then I did at that high school dance
But time doesn't wait for no one
As for who we became, I still play in this band
You are a teacher at school
And if this is what living is, I feel like an idiot
For blaming my love like a fool

I guess that we gave it up then
The truth is there are no regrets
What was my young heart to do?
A girlfriend as pretty as you
