Years May Go By

Last night's post made me remember this song, by Rickie Lee Jones. And while I always thought the song title was Years May Go By, the correct title is Saturday Afternoons in 1963.

I remember when the song "Chuck E's in Love" hit the charts in 1979 - I guess I was just hitting my teenage years - and my parents bought her eponymous album. While most of the album was unappreciated by me (we only bought it for Chuck E's In Love), I loved the simple melody of the album's second song.

The lyrics below:

The most as you'll ever go
Is back where you used to know
If grown-ups could laugh this slow
Where as you watch the hour snow
Years may go by

So hold on to your special friend
Here, you'll need something to keep her in :
"Now you stay inside this foolish grin ... "
Though any day your secrets end
Then again
Years may go by

You saved your own special friend
'Cuz here you need something to hide her in
And you stay inside that foolish grin
When everyday now secrets end
Oh and then again
Years may go by

I'm not sure what the lyrics mean, but the song always waxes nostalgia for me. I hope you take a listen.
