She said: I was seven and you were nine
I looked at you like the stars that shine
In the sky, the pretty lights

And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
Growin up and fallin in love
And our mamas smiled
And rolled their eyes
And said oh my, my, my...

Take me back to the house with the backyard tree
Said you'd beat me up you were bigger than me
You never did
You never did
Take me back when our world was one block wide
I dared you to kiss me and ran when you tried
Just two kids
You and I
Oh my my my my

Well I was sixteen when suddeny
I wasn't that little girl you used to see
But your eyes still shined
Like pretty lights.
And our daddies used to joke about the two of us
They never believed we'd really fall in love
And our mamas smiled
And rolled their eyes
And said oh my, my, my

Take me back to the creek those weeks in love
Two AM ridin in your truck
And all I need
Is you next to me
Take me back to the time we had our very fist fight
The slammin of doors 'stead of kissin goodnight
You stayed outside
Til the morning light
Oh my, my, my, my

A few years head gone and come around
We were sittin at our favorite spot in town
And you looked at me
Got down on one knee

Take me back to the time
When we walked down the aisle
The whole town came and our mamas cried
You said I do
And I did too
Took me home where we met so many years before
We'll rock our babies on that very front porch
After all this time
You and I


I'll be 87 you'll be 89
I'll still look at you like the stars that shine
In the sky
Oh my, my, my...

    I wrote this song about a couple who lived next door to us. They'd been married forever and they came over one night for dinner, and were just so cute. They were talking about how they fell in love and got married, and how they met when they were just little kids. I thought it was so sweet, because you can go to the grocery store and read the tabloids, and see who's breaking up and cheating on each other (or just listen to some of my songs, haha). But it was really comforting to know that all I had to do was go home and look next door to see a perfect example of forever."

    My friends reckon I'm a hopeless romantic because this song always makes me cry, and I guess that's true but this song is just so beautiful. And hopeful. It shows that love is possible and can last. I heard Taylor wrote it about her neighbours who had been together practically forever. It's really sweet and it remidns me of my Grandparents who recently celebrated their 44th annerversairy
