Sometimes it seems like yesterday
What happened to that girl I knew
When I was seventeen?
Is she just as pretty now
Or have the years been mean?

Is she still the same sweet one
She was so long ago?
As gentle as a warm caress
That made my young heart glow

I hadn’t thought of her in years
She’d drifted from my mind
Yet now she’s all I think about
That girl I left behind

Sometimes it seems like yesterday
The memories are so strong
When we were young and innocent
Or have I got things wrong?

Was everything so simple then?
Or am I just confused?
If I had the chance to go back now
I think I would refuse

I made my choice and that is that
You get no second tries
Do what you can to live each day
Maybe tell yourself some lies

Too late to make up for lost time
Too late for what could be
I’m left here with my memories
That’s good enough for me

‘Cause in my mind she’s still the girl
Who was so sweet and pure
I’m glad that she was in my life
I couldn’t wish for more

I hope that she still thinks of me
Yeah, every now and then
And smiles with fond memories
When she remembers when

When we were young and happy
Before life got in the way
And in my heart she’ll always be
The one that got away
