Bob Seger – 20 Years From Now lyrics

Jan is tired of her inhaler
When she moved here from back east
Still she said she'd stay beside me
And she brought me a new peace

I saw her smilin' in the summer sun
I saw her 'neath the quiet moon
I knew right then I'd never leave her
She had taken me so soon
When she went
She went

And we settled near the blue lagoon
Listened all night to the wind
Sometimes we laughed, sometimes we cried
Sometimes we just went for a swim
All that time my love kept growing, growing, growing
Made me feel so warm inside
All the time her smile glowing
And it gave me so much pride
When she went, yeah when she went

Yeah, now we sit here in the evening
And listen to the crickets sing
And we'll be here twenty years from now
And we'll hear the crickets sing
And then she'll go, oh, oh, oh, oh
She'll go
