that was then

That was then
In that sleepy town
We waltzed across Montgomery
Never even touched the ground

And we were young
And dreamed so hard
Brilliant autumn hues
Like those leaves in the back yard

But that was so long ago
We are so far removed
It’s too many years
Twisting all the rules

Too many nights
Ripping in the dark
All but out of steam
In desperate need of a spark

And we laughed out loud
And slept so sound
We fed off dreams and coffee
And the wind that spun us ‘round

And we made love
Like starving, desperate fools
Pawing at each other
Every time we felt the pull

Repeat bridge

Ah, that was then
and this is now…

that was then
