Jacki (Complicated Man album)
Lyrics
JACKI

All strung out in angel town, sleepin' on the beach
Head pounding from a hard night of booze
Jacki sipping beer gone warm, me humming summer songs
Just two crazy, fun loving fools
I was strumming hard a melody on a second-hand guitar
While Jacki's scratchy voice sang us a song
Waves crashing on the beach, our toes buried in the sand
We made love that whole summer long

- (CHORUS) -
What they say is true
Once lost it can't be found
And, youth is wasted on the young
If heaven on earth was just a day away
I would give you my tomorrows
Just to hold my Jacki Brown

We thumbed our way to Mexico looking for some fun
Two crazy kids flying high on love
We were dancing in the desert when she whispered in my ear
Same time, same place, next year

- (REPEAT CHORUS) -

- (BRIDGE) -
A year to the date, I drove across the border
Waiting patiently at our rendezvous
The hours became days and weighed upon my heart
That's when I realized what Jacki always knew

- (CHORUS) -
What they say is true
Once lost it can't be found
And, youth is wasted on the young
If heaven on earth was just a day away
I would give you all my tomorrows
Just to hold my Jacki. . .
(hold my Jacki)
I wanna love my Jacki. . .
(love my Jacki)
Just to be with my Jacki Brown
