Saying Hello 

When I was one and twenty
Searching for the great American dream
Falling in love with a tight fitting sweater
Losing my mind to a pair of blue jeans
Loving with our eyes closed
Striking the perfect pose
We opened our eyes about a year later
Couldn't believe we had nowhere to go
We said good-bye; I guess we never said hello
I guess we never said hello

When I was three and twenty
Promised myself I wouldn't fall again
Told myself I could have it both ways
Playing it safe but playing to win
Keeping our eyes open wide
Making love side by side
We had enough about a year later
Never dreaming we got bored with the show
We said good-bye; I know we never said hello
I know we never said hello

And I use to say that love was such an easy game
For poets and dreamers and jokers who play the fool
After all these years I think it's time to grow up
It's never as easy as living by the golden rule

When I was five and twenty
Carving a niche between black and white
When you take off those rose colored glasses
Emerald city don't look so bright
There ain't no land of Oz
And Peter Pan fought a lost cause
I had enough about a year later
Looking for answers to questions I know
Running from myself I knew I had nowhere to go
I knew I had nowhere to go

And I use to say that love was such an easy game
For poets and dreamers and jokers who play the fool
After all these years I'm sick and tired of growing up
There's got to be more than living by the golden rule

Now that I'm six and twenty
Getting ready to get back in the game
Love is more than a tight fitting sweater
love is more than sex with a different name
When I first saw you
Your eyes just looked on through
My days of running are over
I know just what I'm going to do
This time I'm going to say hello to you
Going to say hello to you

My days of running are over
I know just what I'm going to do
This time I'm going to say hello to you
Going to say hello to you
