Can you believe it? It's been almost ten years now
And I'm getting that feeling, as we're driving 'round this town
Passing by the old school yard, everything just looks so small
Before the drums and the guitars, way back when we knew it all
And she's sitting right next to me, her hand in the wind
In that old white Cherokee I grew up in
Yeah, it's crazy
Crazy but it's true

CHORUS
That you never get a second chance at the first time
We will never be eighteen again
No, you never get a second chance at the first time
It's so good to see you my old friend
It's good to see you again
Can you believe it? How much everything has changed?
Well, they shut down the old diner
And they put in some new chain
You know it's so good to see you
Man, your hair had got so long
It feels like it's been forever
Used to sing you that old song
With you sitting right next to me, your hand in the wind
In that old white Cherokee I grew up in
Yeah, it's crazy
Crazy 'cause it's true

CHORUS

Well, you know they say that growing up is hard
It's so hard to think of how we almost got so far
Do you remember on the night of our first kiss?
Baby, didn't it feel just a little bit like this?
With you sitting right next to me, your hand in the wind
In that old white Cherokee I grew up in
Yeah, it's crazy
Crazy 'cause it's true

CHORUS
