I dreamed it was 1962.
I dropped a quarter in a juke box,
And played a song for you;
Kissed you by the Pinball King,
Listenin' to Del Shannon sing;
And I had all his records,
He was my favourite then.

But that's all gone,
It won't come back again;
That's all gone,
It won't come back again.

I woke up, I put on my father's shoes,
Sittin' on the front porch just like he used to do;
Stepped across the mornin' sand,
The skyline only showed a sign of rain,
And mine would be the only footprints that remain.

But that's all gone,
It won't come back again;
That's all gone,
It won't come back again.

There was something that I meant to say,
Yeah, yeah;
Too many words got in the way,
Yeah, yeah.

And I dreamed it was 1962.
I lit a fire on the beach,
And lay in the sand with you;
Sang songs until the rain would come,
Straight across the fields we'd run;
You wrapped your sweater 'round my first guitar,
I walked you home.

But that's all gone,
It won't come back again;
But that's all gone,
It won't come back again.

There was something that I meant to say,
Yeah, yeah;
But too many words got in the way,
Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah.

And I dreamed it was 1962.
I dropped a quarter in the juke box,
Played a song for you;
Kissed you by the Pinball King,
Listenin' to Del Shannon sing;
And I had all his records,
He was my favourite then -
Him and Brian Wilson.

But that's all gone,
It won't come back again;
But that's all gone,
It won't come back again.
