      About "Back When We Were Beautiful"

      Lyrics for Matraca Berg - "Back When We Were Beautiful"

      I guess you had to be there, she said, you had to be
      She handed me a yellow photograph and then said, see
      This was my greatest love, my one and only love and this is me
      Back when we were beautiful, see
      I don't feel very different, she said, I know it's strange
      I guess I've gotten used to these little aches and pains
      But I still love to dance, you know we used to dance the night away
      Back when we were beautiful, beautiful, yeah

      I hate it when they say I'm aging gracefully
      I fight it everyday, I guess they never see
      I don't like this at all, what's happening to me
      To me

      But I really love my grandkids, she said, they're sweet to hold
      They would have loved their grandpa, those awful jokes he told
      You know, sometimes for a laugh the two of us would act like we were old
      Back when we were beautiful, beautiful, yeah

      But I guess you had to be there
