Back to Twenty Years And Two Husbands Ago lyrics

Twenty Years And Two Husbands Ago

Lookin' in the bathroom mirror
Puttin' my makeup on
Maybelline can't hide the lines
Of time that's gone

I weighed 105 soakin' wet
I'd knock 'em dead in that sundress
Had it all, just too young to know
That was twenty years and two husbands ago

I remember when he took my hand
And said "I do"
And the kitchen I was standin' in
When he said "I'm through"

And I swore I'd never fall back in
Put my heart through that again
Never let somebody get that close
But that was twenty years and two husbands ago

Water under the bridge
I guess that's all life really is
That's just the way it is

Drivin' the kids to school today
It occurred to me
With all the wrong turns that I've made
I'm right where I should be

But I go back there from time to time
Lookin' for that peace of mind
And find it's always just a dead-end road
Yeah, that was twenty years and two husbands ago

Water under the bridge
I guess that's all life really is
That's just the way it is

Lookin' in the bathroom mirror
Puttin' my makeup on
