Misspent Youth Lyrics

Misspent Youth - James Otto

Written by:James Otto/CJ Watson

 

Seventeen and innocent

I wonder where all the years went

Lookin' back on a youth misspent

God I miss those days

 

All the chances that we took

 

Always leaped and never looked

I tell you I could write a book

 

On all the hell we raised

 

Thought i was cool with my lucky stripes

I didn't start too many fights

 

But in those days i finished quite a few

 

Beat-up cars and the cheapest wine

And any trouble we could find

 

The worst of days were the best of times

Lookin' back through life's rearview

 

Lookin' back

I miss my misspent youth

 

I'm no worse now for the wear

I've gotten married and cut my hair

Me and her we're quite a pair

All my friends say

 

And speaking of old friends

 

We still talk now and then

'Cept now there's a few of them

You can only reach by prayer

 

We were cool with our lucky stripes

Didn't start too many fights

 

But in those days we finished quite a few

 

Beat-up cars and the cheapest wine

And any trouble that we could find

The worst of days were the best of times

Lookin' back through life's rearview

 

And lookin' back

I miss my misspent youth

 

Beat-up cars and the cheapest wine

And any trouble we could find

The worst of days were the best of times

Lookin' back through life's rearview

 

And lookin' back

I miss my misspent youth

 

And lookin' back

 

I miss my misspent youth
