Take me back to a time when words meant more than things money could buy.
A time when a guy went out of his way to impress a lady
I’m talking about more than just arriving in a brand new mercedes
Take me back to when Shakespeare was always close to the ear.
I’m talking of a time when romance hadn’t been degraded to a few texts and naked pictures
Take me to that time when the sound of love filled the streets, punctuated by sweet words of poetry.
A time when lovers were passionate and intimate not just worried about their public image.
When chivalry wasn’t dead and valued was a mans words
Relationships were built on trust and one wouldn’t go behind a lovers back.
A time were a woman marrying rich didn’t seem mandatory
A time we’re now only reminded by stories
Take me back to that time long forgotten like it never existed.
A time at times I wish I had lived.
