I returned to my hometown yesterday,
And my life before my eyes came flashing back;
Everything was changed and
the faces looked so strange,
Sometimes I wish that I was young again.

If I close my eyes,
think on back to happy times,
I can be sixteen years old for a while;
Honest friendships, high school dances,
innocence, short romances,
Life was simple but it sure was good somehow.

Then we drove to an old beach last night,
A place we used to go not long ago;
Walkin' barefoot in the sand,
I saw two people holding hands,
Fallin' in love for their first time.

If I close my eyes,
think on back to happy times,
I can be sixteen years old for a while;
Honest friendships, high school dances,
innocence, short romances,
Life was simple but it sure was good somehow.

Now I'm older, I guess, a little wiser,
Experience is added to my name;
But I can't help but feel
That I traded a part
Of who I am along the way.

If I close my eyes,
think on back to happy times,
I can be sixteen years old for a while;
Honest friendships, high school dances,
innocence, short romances,
Life was simple but it sure was good somehow.

If I close my eyes,
think on back to happy times,
I can be sixteen years old for a while;
Honest friendships, high school dances,
innocence, short romances,
Life was simple but it sure was good somehow.
Life was simple but it sure was good somehow.
