I remember when you were only 17
you were the finest girl that my eyes had ever seen.
I guess you found it hard to simply just ignore this scruffy beat up working class teenage troubadour.
So we fell in love and I toured your heart with my out of tune Guitar. you were wonderful your were mystical and the envy of all of my friends, seems like only yesterday under the stars on Brighton beach.
Oh what a time it was, what a time to be alive.. Remember Janis and Jimmy Kennedy and Cain how we cried..
I sang to you the songs of Ramblin Jack you were Greta Garbo and I was Kerouac and we played so hard and we loved so hard seemed we never ever slept. They were crazy days they were wonderful days and I loved you with all of my heart. seems like only yesterday under the stars on Brighton beach,
Ohhh Your Daddy had plans that did not include me and wont stay away from the door and I dreamed how I dreamed I could steal you away to some wild distant shore.
La da da da da Then early one morning I awoke to find you gone, you wrote I love you baby but its time for me to move on.. and so my teenage heart was scattered on the floor I swear to God I could not have loved you anymore. And as I sit here at night playing with my kids wondering where you are in this world, Did you find your man? Are you happy now? Do you ever stop and think about me? O' How I long for yesterday under the stars on Brighton beach.
