Let's Drink a Bottle of Love



i lost my innocence at a hundred and three
i had held it for a whole century
i lost my innocence and now i am free
everything in its time

i lost my shadow at a hundred and four
on a cloudy day it went right out the door
i lost my shadow at a hundred and four
i'm just waiting for the sun to shine

(chorus)
good things take their own sweet time
good things have done it since time out of mind
grapes are best when they ripe on the vine
let's drink a bottle of love

i lost my house when i was a hundred and five
it's oh so hard just to stay alive
i lost my house and most of my pride
had them both a very long time

i lost my friend at a hundred and six
she held my hand and my heart was fixed
she emptied out my last bag of tricks
man she had a wonderful smile

(chorus)
good things take their own sweet time
good things have done it since time out of mind
grapes are best when they ripe on the vine
let's drink a bottle of love

i lost my life at a hundred and seven
don't care much to go up to heaven
i don't know just who i'm kiddin'
i'll wave to you when i pass by

(bridge)

i lost my innocence at a hundred and three
i had held it for a whole century
i lost my innocence and now i am free
everything in its time

i lost my shadow at a hundred and four
on a cloudy day it went right out the door
i lost my shadow at a hundred and four
i'm just waiting for the sun to shine

(acapella)
good things take their own sweet time
good things have done it since time out of mind
grapes are best when they ripe on the vine
let's drink a bottle of love

I wrote these lyrics this morning (4/10/10)--I was listening to "Side by Side" yesterday--I think the music is still in my head...

Great lyric. I have to admit I had a slightly different melody in mind. . .
