lyrics

Long ago when we both were young
Living for kicks, kisses and fun
We were carefree, pretty & dumb
Take a good look at me now
Bloom of youth was starting to fade
The day you faced my wavering gaze
Picked me up and blew me away
Take a good look at me now

Did you think we’d never get old
Never get old, never get old ?
Take a good look at me now

Mad and bad - exciting to know
Where you led I was happy to go
In your spell I'd never say no
Take a good look at me now
Bit by bit you started to sink
Slapdash, bareback, starting to drink
I played safe & stayed on the brink
Take a good look at me now

Did you think we’d never get old
Never get old, never get old ?
Take a good look at me now

Leaning on me, sick in the street
Smelling of sweat, dead on your feet
Swallowing hard, unable to speak
Take a good look at me now:
Sober coat, a jacket & tie
Sat with strangers, wiping an eye
Empty gesture, saying goodbye
Take a good look at me now

Did you think we’d never get old
Never get old, never get old ?
Take a good look at me now
