1982 lyrics – randy travis

operator, please connect me
with 1982
i need to make apologies
for what i didn’t do
i sure do need to tell her
that i’ve thought the whole thing through
and now it’s clear that she is what
i should have held on to

they say hindsight’s 20/20
but i’m nearly going blind
from staring at her photograph
and wishing she was mine
it’s that same old lost love story
it’s sad but it’s true
there was a time when she was mine
in 1982

postman, can you sell me
a special kind of stamp
one to send a letter from
this crazy, lonely man
back into the wasted years
of my living past
i need to tell her now i know
how long my love will last

they say hindsight’s 20/20
but i’m nearly going blind
from staring at her photograph
and wishing she was mine
it’s that same old lost love story
it’s sad but it’s true
there was a time when she was mine
in 1982
losing my mind going back in time
to 1982
