In those days love was everything.
He loved her like a tangled kiss,
And she loved him with all her teenage fervor —
The room the same, the heart had changed.
Perspectives go with attitudes,
And what they had they wanted to take further.
In nights of majesty and light,
Discovery and after-flight,
The world shrunk down, but also grew,
At least for two —
In those days love was everything:
She wore him like a fresh corsage,
And he wore her just like a life preserver
