Favorite Year

Album: Taking The Long Way (2006)
  • We were young and so inspired
    We weren't the only ones who thought
    We'd change the world
    No sun would set without us
    No one we knew could ever doubt us

    We had our future figured out
    We knew a love like ours would always save the day
    And that we'd always be okay

    [Chorus]
    But would you know me now?
    Would you lay me down beside you
    Tell me everything I want to hear
    Like that was your favorite year
    Like that was your favorite year?

    You looked at me like no one else
    But sometimes love just doesn't seem to conquer all
    We search for someone else to blame
    But sometimes things can't stay the same

    [Chorus]

    Holding on to the memories
    Of when we were younger
    I can't forget
    'Cause when we were together
    That's when I was at my best

    And would you know me now?
    Would you lay me down beside you
    Tell me all the things I long to hear
    Like that was your favorite year
    Like that was your favorite year?
    'Cause that was my favorite year Writer/s: MARTHA MAGUIRE, NATALIE MAINES, SHERYL CROW
