Now I can remember like it was only yesterday Love was young and foolish like a little child at play But oh how lovers change -- I never dreamed how easily 'Cause now I'm just a shadow of the boy I used to be
And when I write the book about my love It will be about a man who's torn in half About his hopes and ambitions wasted through the years The pain will be written on every page in tears When I write the book about my love
I was a fool to myself when I kept on runnin' around And I fared little better when I tried settlin' down Maybe some magic moment I've never known one, not for long For all too soon the magic is in a moment gone
And when I write the book about my love It'll be a heartbreaking story about love and luck When I get down on the pages all I felt It will make the hardest-hearted of critics' hearts melt When I write the book about my love
When I was young love was fun and I was so happy I looked so good, and I dressed so snappy Two-tone shoes on my feet, big old smile on my face As I moved and grooved all over the place Now I'm down in the heels, my complexion is bad 'Cause my love life is sadder than sad
And when I write the book about my love It'll be a pop publication, tougher than tough When I get down on the pages all I missed It will shoot to the top of the best-sellers list When I write the book about my love
