It's good there was a full moon out that night
I can still recall your body in the pale white light
When love's not love it sure felt right
Who would have known you were the crazy type.

We were teaching each other how to love
After all it couldn't be that tough
On the bank of the river with the stars above
I learned things I never knew of....

When we were young and wild livin' day to day
Swervin' around every corner tryin' to find our way
Time seemed to stop for us baby didn't it?
When we were innocent
When we were innocent

Sneakin' around afraid of gettin' caught
We went against everything the preacher taught
Skinny dippin' in the river when it got hot
Foggin' up the windows in the parkin' lot

Do you remember that night on the 4th of July
By the pond shootin' bottle rockets into the sky
We didn't have to leave the ground to fly
I've never had a girl take me so high........

When we were young and wild livin' day to day
Swervin' around every corner tryin' to find our way
Time seemed to stop for us baby didn't it?
When we were innocent
When we were innocent

It's gone from cargo light to candle light
Cheap wine to champagne
Baby knowing what we know now
Don't you wish we could go back again?

When we were young and wild livin' day to day
Swervin' around every corner tryin' to find our way
Time seemed to stop for us baby didn't it?
When we were innocent
When we were innocent
