Allan Taylor - For What It's Worth



We sent our postcards saying "wish you were here"
And then made love under the boardwalk pier
I got it wrong and you started to cry
I said I loved you but it was a lie
You were gentle and I was rough
I was talking big and acting tough
Now I've forgotten your name, it was so long ago
We were two young kids with no place to go
No place to go

We lost touch I had the world to see
I didn't think of you did you think of me
When you fell in love was he good and kind
Like I should have been for your first time
I should have got you a ring from the trinket stall
And drawn a heart with and arrow on the boardwalk wall
Maybe got you a flower to weave in your hair
I should have done something that was tender to show that I cared
To show that I cared

That's the way life sometimes goes
How life can change nobody knows

For what it's worth and come what may
I'm feeling bad when I think of that day
Young love should be pure and true
And I should have been so good for you
Do you remember the kid who got it all wrong
Well that kid's now a man and he's writing this song
I'm composing these words, I'm trying to tell you somehow
I didn't love you then, but I love you now
That's the way life sometimes goes
How life can change nobody knows
Nobody knows, nobody knows
How things can change, nobody knows
