Verse 1
I've been reminding myself about those early days
So far back then when we were free
Even now I'm still amazed
That I got you and you got me

Verse 2
I still remember that very first night
I was up on the stage with my old guitar
Your long hair glowing in the candlelight
As you made your way through that rock n roll bar

Chorus 1
Those were the days of mystery
I didn't know you and you didn't know me
We had the sun on our backs and toes in the sea
Back in those days of mystery - mystery

Verse 3
For the first few weeks we just took things slow
Very careful not to spoil the time
Feeling our way into this brand new world
Before I was yours and you were mine.

Chorus 2
Those were the days, the days of mystery
I didn't know you and you didn't know me
A future ahead that we just couldn't see
Back in those days of mystery - mystery

And then it happened like a burst of light
That special moment for you and me
So close together just like stars that night
A taste of what our life was going to be

Those were the days of mystery
Discovering you and discovering me
With love in our hearts we had set ourselves free
Back in those days of mystery

Back in the days, those days of mystery
Knowing you babe knowing me
With the sun on our backs and our toes in the sea
Back in those days of mystery
Back in those days of mystery
Oh oh mystery

Song was well put together in my humble opinion. Everything was well recorded and mixed appropriately. Overall you did a nice job...

Reminds me of the Byrds a little. Or Dylan

Nice voice, very nice to listen too ! Good song

Good Song about great love. Well balanced production allowing the story to be heard. Enjoyed it!

Good vocal and recording. Good mix and nice vibe on the song. Easy to listen to and pleasant arrangement. A little Kenny Rogers sound to the vocal which is good.

terrific track - nice sentimental lyrics with a strong hook. The mix and production are truly first class - everything just where it belongs - harmony vocals supporting and the guitar floating in and around the melody. The vocals are warm and earnest, conveying the emotional content well. This is almost new country as well as a solid AOR ballad - so you get the best of both worlds.
