Living hard was easy when I was young and bullet proof
I had no change to bind me, just a guitar and a roof
Emptied every bottle, when I poured I never missed
I had bloodshot eyes at 25, or was it 26?

It didn't seem to matter what price I had to pay
'Cause anything worth having I'd just lose anyway
Friends worried about me and they asked if I was sick
Thought I would die at 25, or was it 26?

Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
Melting into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say I've come around but if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at 25, or was it 26?

I met a girl from Georgia, smart and pretty college grad
I thought my luck was changing up till then it'd all been bad
Guess I fell in love with her, all it took was just one kiss
But she said goodbye at 25, or was it 26?

Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
Melting into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say I've come around but if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at 25, or was it 26?

Yeah, I've been down the road before almost as far as hell
Deception or redemption I guess only time will tell
I have faith in the knowledge that God gave us a gift
I couldn't hide at 25, or was it 26?

Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
Melting into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say I've come around but if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at 25, or was it 26?
I'd like another try at 25, or was it 26?
