lyrics

When the girl I loved was fourteen
And her days were bright and clean
She ran outside and laughed out loud
And sang in praise of sun and cloud

When the girl I loved was fourteen
The most beautiful I’ve seen
At least she was that much to me
And that was all she had to be

But we lived in different worlds then
And never spoke but once or twice
Even still she haunts my dreams
And I confess it’s true
The one I miss the most
Is the one I never knew

When the girl I loved was fourteen
And her days grew dark and mean
A cold world wouldn’t leave her be
And cut her down indifferently

But I could only stand by helpless
Until the day she had to leave
And when I knew that she was gone
My heart broke all the way through
For the one I miss the most
The one I never knew

Those troubled times are long ago now
And I’ve lived my life alone
If all I’ve left is to remember
Well, that much I can do
For the one I miss the most
The one I never knew

When the girl I loved was fourteen
And one time she smiled at me
