Story

Lyrics

Thought we were old enough, thought we were all grown up
Back in the fall of sixty-two
Stuck in a steel town, I pushed the ore around
You were sixteen, I was twenty-two
 
We talked for days and days, we planned our getaway
I put a ring on your left hand
Your daddy disapproved, your momma cried for you
There was no way they’d understand
 
     We felt we had the right
     So we took off one night
     No other choice was left to choose
     Back in those younger years
     We lived without those fears
     We thought there’s nothing we can lose
 
          Younger Years, we knew what we wanted then
          Younger Years, we reached out and took it in
          Younger Years, Younger Years
 
A job was hard to find, long unemployment lines
When we got down to our last dime
With rent due on the first, it went from hard to worse
Don’t know how we got through those times
 
     We could have given up
     Said that we’d had enough
     Somehow we put up a good fight
     Back in those Younger Years
     We brushed away the tears
     And just held on to you and I
 
          Younger Years, we knew what we wanted then
          Younger Years, we reached out and took it in
          Younger Years, Younger Years
 
               Times are still tough and we just get by
               It’s harder now to get up and try
 
     But in those Younger Years before we had these fears
     Our love could always get us by
