Track Name: When I Was Young & Full of Passion
When I was young and full of passion
My life was all divin’ and dashin’
I wanted more than was my ration
That was the way, that was the fashion

I was alone, I was a stranger
I lived with real and present danger
The powers that be said “We will change ya
The hierarchy will rearrange ya”

Don’t bug me now, don’t bug me, mister
That girl was mine, I hugged and kissed her
I went away, told her I missed her
And then I screwed her little sister

I made a deal, thought it was my day
It all went wrong long before Friday
I took a fall out on the highway
And worst of all, I did it my way

When I saw you walk into the room
I knew the game was up for me
There was all to play and no way back I could see
When I let you walk into my life
Then the earth turned
And from all the lies your bright eyes set me free

My heart ran slow, my heart was burning
I didn’t know why I was yearning
I never knew that I’d be learning
If not for you, there’d be no turning

Now I’ve found you, and you have found me
You weave your magic circle round me
How your face shines, and how you ground me
It never ceases to astound me
