The times we had
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
We put our feet just where they had
Had to go, never to go

The shattered soul
Following close but nearly twice as slow
In my good times
There were always golden rocks to throw
At those who
Those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

And I will love to see that day
That day is mine
When she will marry me outside
With the willow trees
And play the songs we made
They made me so
And I would love to see that day
Her day was mine

    It means you can´t forget your crush, even if she didn't accomplish our expectations, 'cause your hope could be bigger than your deception.

    Los tiempos que tubimos
    oh, cuando el viento solplaria con lluvia y nieve,
    no estamos tan mal
    ponemos nuestros pies donde ellos
    tubieron que irse, para jamas ir...

    El alma en pedazos
    siguiendo de cerca pero casi dos veces mas lento
    en mis buenos tiempos
    habian siempre rocas doradas para lanzar
    a aquellos que
    aquellos que admitian derrota muy tarde
    aquellos fueron nuestros tiempos, fueron nuestros tiempos

    Y yo amare el ver aquel dia
    aquel dia es mio
    cuando ella se casara conmigo fuera
    con los arboles
    y tocaremos las canciones que hicimos juntos
    las que me hicieron
    y amare el ver ese dia
    su dia fue mio
