15 Years Ago

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the Compilation Country U.S.A. (1970).

I saw a man today who said he talked to you
Not so long ago, I think a month or two
As my mind raced back in time
I pray, oh Lord don't let it show
He thinks I forgot you fifteen years ago.

Fifteen years ago and I still feel the same
Why did he have to mention your name
I'm as broken up inside as if it's been a week or so
Takes a mighty strong love to keep a man thinking of
A girl he hasn't seen since fifteen years ago.

I've got a lovely wife who thinks the world of me
Promised her my love through all eternity
I've tried hard to make her happy
And so far she doesn't know
I can't shake this thing of fifteen years ago.

Fifteen years ago and I still feel the same
Why did he have to mention your name
I'm as broken up inside as if it's been a week or so
Takes a mighty long time
To get a real love off your mind I know
I've tried since fifteen years ago...
