Bettye Lavette – When I Was A Young Girl lyrics

When I was a young girl
All the guys I scored
Now I've got older
I see I have a lot to learn

Yesterday's illusions may be tomorrow's smiles
I look back and laugh every once and a while
And it's always the same
Who knows who's to blame?
If I knew then what I know now
Mistakes I wouldn't have made

But you can't get a short review
Of what you gonna go through
And you got to rely on your body and mind
See the light from the tunnel

Life is the same
But time's gonna change
Respect your view
Look around mister please
You can't even find the clue

Some say it you can change your life
Some say that it ‘s fake
Sometimes when you find what to do
All this is what I had

And it's always the same
Who knows who's to blame?
If I knew then what I know now
Mistakes I wouldn't have made

But you can't get a short review
Of what you gonna go through
And you got to rely on your body and mind
See the light from the tunnel

Life is the same
But time's gonna change
Respect your view
Look around mister please
You can't even find the clue

Some say it you can change your life
Some say that it's fake
Sometimes when you find what to do
All this is what I had
