Twenty-Two
 
Lyrics
VERSE
When I held you near, life was clear
You and me against the world forevermore
But then that entirely intoxicating atmosphere
Gave way to the guy from next door

VERSE
Now I have lived my life with no apology
I have so wanted to see you through the years
And now thanks to all these new realities
I just saw your face, and I'm holding back tears

CHORUS
There was magic in the air the day we met
I'd never seen a girl lovely as you
It was a time I will never forget
I wish I was still twenty-two

VERSE
There may be nothing ever come of this
Unless you discover from this song
That I need to be saved from this dark abyss
If you choose, come back to me where you belong

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
I wish I was still twenty-two
