Alabama – Southern Star Lyrics

I saw a man today who said he talked to you
not so long ago, I think a month or two
as my mind raced back in time I prayed
oh, Lord, don’t let it show
he thinks I forgot you fifteen years ago

Fifteen years ago and I still feel the same
why did he have to mention your name
I’m as broken up inside as if it’s been a week or so
it takes a mighty long time
to get a real love off your mind
I know, I’ve tried since fifteen years ago

I’ve got a lovely wife who thinks the world of me
I promised her my love through all eternity
I’ve tried hard to make her happy
and so far, she doesn’t know
That I can’t shake this thing of fifteen years ago

Fifteen years ago and I still feel the same
why did he have to mention your name
I’m as broken up inside as if it’s been a week or so
It takes a mighty strong love
To keep a man thinking of
A girl he hasn’t seen since fifteen years ago
