Lyrics

Your old leather jacket
Hanging in the corner
Reminds me of daydreams
Of when we were younger

We were laughing and playing
And living in wonder
Hoping for better
Being together

You used to play guitar like nobody’s business
You used to love me
You used to hold me
You used to dance with me
Every Saturday night
Now you’re watching TV
Running on empty

Well I still remember when there was life in your eyes
Nothing can get you down
Nothing can make you sad
Now there’s an emptiness
Living from day to day
Molding your thinking
And chipping away your soul
Now we’re much older
Our girls are all grown up
Something has left you
You’re just not the same
I wish I could see you
The way that we were then
I wish I could give you
A son who’d adore you

You used to play guitar like nobody’s business
You used to love me
You used to hold me
You used to dance with me
Every Saturday night
Now you’re watching TV
Running on empty
Running on empty

Sometimes I wake up
In the middle of the night
Just to watch you sleeping
The way you used to be

You used to play guitar like nobody’s business
You used to love me
You used to hold me
You used to dance with me
Every Saturday night
Now you’re watching TV
Running on empty
Running on empty

Your old leather jacket
Hanging in the corner
Reminds me of daydreams
Of when we were younger
We were laughing and playing
And living in wonder
Hoping for better
Being together
Your old leather jacket
Hanging in the corner
Reminds me of daydreams
Of when we were younger
