17

The first time we laid down was so tender,
And the next night I remember kept her high heels on..
So excited, I invited her to stay a while,
Just as long as she promised to keep that red dress on..

How was I to know she was only fooling around..

‘cos I was only 17, just trying to keep my hands clean,
did’nt know what love could mean, I was living life..

on the radio they played that song called ‘Layla’
and she turned it up as she came across the room to me..
and I held her close like she was made of angel glass,
never realised that what we had could never last..

How was I to know she was only fooling around..

‘cos I was only 17, just trying to keep my hands clean,
did’nt know what love could mean, I was living life..
I was only trying to be good, it was misunderstood,
Just living like a boy should..
I was living life..

I was living life, oh it does’nt seem so long ago,
That I was living life, it amazes me how time can pass you by..
When you living life, how was I to know she was only fooling around..
Just fooling around..

Na, na, na.. living life..

Living life…
