Lyrics:

Well I have a lover,
Don't see enough of her anymore.
Suddenly I'm the one who's calling.
Think of the man who hesitated,
I think of the life we could have known.

Well she got married
On the day that I got ready.
There've been so many times I've
Cursed myself it's true,
Wished that I hadn't played such games,
To have my cake and eat it too.

She says when we're 90
We'll finally be free
To be together night and day.
I want to be 90 today.
I want to be 90 today,
I want to feel her heartbeat as the day breaks.
I want to be 90 today,
And not let another night go by
Without my baby by my side,
Not another day to wonder why.

Well I had my chance some time ago.
Couldn't say I love you,
When it mattered most.
Couldn't see that far ahead,
I acted much too proud.
And now there's heartache every day
And every night I cry out loud.

She says when we're 90
We'll finally be free
To be together night and day.
I want to be 90 today.
I want to be 90 today,
I want to feel her heartbeat as the day breaks.
I want to be 90 today,
And not let another night go by
Without my baby by my side,
Not another day to wonder why.
