I was just eighteen when I left Aberdeen
No jobs on the farm, not a cent to be seen.
You always loved me with all of your heart
You said that you knew it from the very first time.


I don't know why it always has to be so
That a man yet to be still has to be free.
I had to leave you and try something new
It was just too soon ...to marry you

I became a misplaced fool lost on the wrong map
Cutting roads though the forests of some foreign lands,
Where a drunken dollar buys a chippy's heart
And a man can find hell lost in the dark.

I read your letters and kept your picture in view
Every day I saw a special feature in you.
It was all I could do to not be confused,
The aching prayer of a searching heart.

Three long years have passed away
And the memories will always remain.
I'd feel the warmth of your nectar of hope.
A caring kiss, and your tender embrace

Now there's no place left to run away
And my aching heart doesn't want to wait.
I'd give anything to turn back time,
And erase my hasty heart's foolish disguise.

I didn't ever want to hurt you.
But for some of us it's all too true...
It takes a long time to fall in love,
It takes a long time... growing up.
