We Were

  • We Were
    We were just a couple years short of the age by my name on a fake ID
    And still 'bout a hundred away from the day your daddy said you could run with me
    We were a couple of line-steppers who just couldn't wait to step over the line
    Never thinking we wouldn't last, I was your first and you were mine

    And we were leather jackets hangin' on to a Harley
    two heartbeats in the moonlight
    We were both feet hanging out over the edge of the water tower skyline
    At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter
    though a part of me is always gonna miss her
    I am who I am I just miss who I was when we were

    We were gonna make it weren't we baby
    had it all laid out in our mind
    By the time we knew time was running out we'd done run outta time
    We were a downtown Saturday night last call cover band
    'Til the last song played, never thought we'd fade like the stamp on the back of her hand

    We were, her on my shoulders, lighter in the air, pour some sugar on me
    We were top town in Johnson's field when she whispered that she wants me
    At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter
    though a part of me is always gonna miss her
    I am who I am I just miss who I was when we were

    We were leather jackets, hangin' on to a Harley, two heartbeats in the moonlight
    We were, both feet hanging out over the edge of the water tower skyline
    At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter, though a part of me is always gonna miss her
    I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were
    Yes, I do

    Friends say "Oh well, let that ship sail, you've gotta let go of her"
    Just wasn't meant to be, but somewhere down deep
    I still believe that we were
