David Lee Roth – Nothing Could Have Stopped Us Back Then Anyway Lyrics

Lyrics David Lee Roth – Nothing Could Have Stopped Us Back Then Anyway

We laughed, we cried
We threw the television off that balcony
That memory means so much to me

No doubt in me, I do believe that no one
Listens to both sides except the neighbors
Fine art of compromise, happy losing half of mine ’cause she’ll lose her half later

First taste of being victim of the very songs I sing
Ended up with “Say goodbye” and “I hope I hear good things”

Walk away
Walk away

Nothing could have stopped us back then anyway

Remember when you safety-pinned the tablecloth to my pants
And I stood up to the sound of dancing and the sound of our romance beginning?
Kicked out the restaurant to make the night complete
Six-pack and a happy meal on a park bench down the street

Dinner with Tennessee’s elite

“Once upon a time” is how a fairy tale sells it
“Sit down, you won’t believe this shit” is how the trucker tells it
Strike up the band, hire the piper, we will pay

Nothing could have stopped us back then anyway
