about

We were about eleven years old, too young to know but not too young to try.

lyrics

The girl with long blonde hair was taller than me,
she seemed to know what she wanted to be
an independent girl so cold to the bone
who could take or leave my love alone
oh! Rosalyn, was your heart made of stone.
A young bot falls in love for the very first time
he don't know how to show her
he don't know how to speak his mind
and she's so wise you think she'd let him know
it's only natural let the river flow
oh! Rosalyn, show me which way to go.
I'd say, say, say it to her but I don't know how
to make her understand the way I feel right now
it's not just an impulse, it's deeper than that
it's like the call of nature as a matter of fact.
I can't help myself she's got a magnetic pull
I feel myself stammering I feel like a fool.
We'd stand in silence Rosalyn and me
beneath the trees and every day
I'd fall in love some more
found what I was looking for
my heart was lost I swear I couldn't see.
A young boy want's to show her all he can be
it never turned out right though I tried endlessly
still you can watch it die
or you can say goodbye
be on your way
he who loves and runs will love another day.
Where are you now Rosalyn
how many of your dreams have been broken
have you found how things are meant to be
between two hearts in harmony
can you love with the warmth of a woman.
