Back to Me And Charlie Talking lyrics

Me And Charlie Talking

Me and Charlie boy used to go walking
Sittin' in the woods behind my house
When being lovers meant a stolen kiss
And holding hands with nobody else around

Charlie said, "He wanted to get married "
But we were only ten so we'd have to wait
He said, "We'd never let our love run dry
Like so many do these days"

So we treat our love like a firefly
Like it only gets to shine for a little while
Catch it in a mason jar with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off

Oh promises we made when we go walkin'
And that's just me and Charlie talking

Charlie always said, "He'd like to live here"
Turned eighteen and left our sleepy town
Letters came and went and I kept waiting
For Charlie to come back and bring the life he'd found

It's funny how time and distance change you
The road you take don't always lead you home
You can start a love with good intentions
Then you look up and it's gone

So you treat our love like a firefly
Like it only gets to shine but for a little while
You catch it in a mason jar with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off

Oh promises we made when we go walking
That's just me and Charlie talking

Now and then I sometimes think of Charlie
How we thought we new it all back then
Now I'd give anything to feel love
From a child's heart again

So you treat your love like a firefly
Like it only gets to shine for a little while
Catch it in a mason jar with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off

Oh promises we made when we go walking
And that's just me and Charlie, me and Charlie talking
