The Golden Years Lyrics

[Intro: Joshua Bassett]
Woo-oh-oh, woo-oh-oh

[Verse 1: Joshua Bassett]
Time stopped moving the minute I saw ya
You took my Taylor guitar in the city of stars
And you made it your own
(Stars and you made it your own
Stars and you made it your own)
Late night, oh, how I'm missing those brown eyes
Funny, I'd rather be fighting with you
Than alone in the city we knew
(Alone in the city, alone in the city we knew)

[Pre-Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
Four years gone by in the blink of an eye
We were young 'til we weren't
It was fun 'til it hurt
Now I'm terrified that I'll never find love like yours

[Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
If I would've known
Those were the golden years
I would've held you longer that night
When you kissed me goodbye through your tears
If I would've known
Those were the golden years
I would've never left you alone
When you needed me most, my dear
'Cause those were the golden years
(Woo-oh-oh, woo-oh-oh)
Those were the golden years
(Woo-oh-oh, woo-oh-oh)

[Verse 2: Joshua Bassett]
I left you under the cherry tree that June
Back at the place where I told you that
I loved you way too soon
(Loved you way too soon, loved you way too soon)
Lately, I stare at the pictures you gave me
I can't help wondering if you ever stare back at them too
(Stare back at them)

[Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
If I would've known
Those were the golden years
I would've held you longer that night
When you kissed me goodbye through your tears
If I would've known
Those were the golden years
I would've never left you alone
When you needed me most, my dear
'Cause those were the golden years

[Bridge: Joshua Bassett]
So dance with me under the cherry tree, darling
We'll act like we're still young and free (Mm)
'Cause I'm still in love with the story of us
We were young, but our love, it was real

[Chorus: Joshua Bassett]
If I would've known
Those were the golden years
I would've held you longer that night
When you kissed me goodbye through your tears
If I would've known
Those were the golden years
I would've never left you alone
When you needed me most, my dear
'Cause those were the golden years
(Woo-oh-oh, woo-oh-oh)
Those were the golden years
(Woo-oh-oh, woo-oh-oh)

[Outro: Joshua Bassett]
Those were the golden years
