Song of the Week

We Were

Keith Urban

We were just a couple years short of the age

By my name on a fake ID

And still ’bout a hundred away from the day

Your daddy said you could run with me

We were a couple of line steppers

Who just couldn’t wait to step over the line

Never thinkin’ we wouldn’t last

I was your first and you were mine

And we were leather jackets hangin’ onto a Harley

Two heartbeats in the moonlight

We were both feet hangin’ out over the edge

Of the water tower skyline

At least there’s a little bit of sweet in the bitter

Though a part of me is always gonna miss her

I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

Mm-hmm

We were gonna make it, weren’t we, baby?

Had it all laid out in our mind

By the time we knew time was runnin’ out

We’d done run out of time

And we were downtown Saturday night, last-call cover band

’Til the last song played, never thought we’d fade

Like the stamp on the back of her hand

We were her on my shoulders, lighter in the air

“Pour Some Sugar On Me”

We were a top down at Johnson’s field

When she whispered that she wants me

At least there’s a little bit of sweet in the bitter

Though a part of me is always gonna miss her

I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

Oh, mm-hmm

We were leather jackets hangin’ onto a Harley

Two heartbeats in the moonlight

We were both feet hangin’ out over the edge

Of the water tower skyline

At least there’s a little bit of sweet in the bitter

Though a part of me is always gonna miss her

I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

Mmm, yes, I do

My friends say

“Oh well, let that ship sail

You gotta let go of her”

Just wasn’t meant to be

But somewhere down deep, I still believe

That we were

Review

Lyrically indistinct, this single is treading familiar ground of longing for the good old days without the specific details that make such exercises come to life. That said, Urban is an incredible singer still in his prime, and he can sell just about anything on record.
