Pretty brown eyed girl she's so sweet and naive
She met a boy fell in love, carved their name out in a tree
And oh you, what a perfect memory, there's a swing out by the creek
They would meet there, he put a rose in her hair
Then she kissed him on the cheek

Those were the days of innocence
When a boy just liked a girl
But we didn't know the difference
We were livin' in our own world

All alone and then I close my eyes
I think back to that time of my life
When everything that meant anything was you
Messed things up grew up a little too fast
I knew it was much too good to last
'Cuz the only thing that meant anything was you, yeah

After church one Sunday morning near the bottom of the stairs
Hair pressed a pretty white dress playing a game of truth or dare
And oh, I can still hear my momma saying child you need to pray
I knew it was wrong but it's been so long since I felt that way

Those were the days of innocence
When a boy just liked a girl
But we didn't know the difference
And we're livin' in our own world

All alone and then I close my eyes
I think back to that time of my life
When everything that meant anything was you
Messed things up grew up a little too fast
I knew it was much too good to last
'Cuz the only thing that meant anything was you, yeah

Starry skies under the moonlight
You and I two fireflies enchanted by the night
When I see a rainbow dance across the sky
I feel all warm inside I get teary eyed
Makes me think about you and I

All alone and then I close my eyes
I think back to that time of my life
When everything that meant anything was you
Messed things up grew up a little too fast
I knew it was much too good to last
'Cuz the only thing that meant anything was you

All alone and then I close my eyes
I think back to that time of my life
When everything that meant anything was you
Messed things up grew up a little too fast
I knew it was much too good to last
'Cuz the only thing that meant anything was you, yeah
