Old Soul

I saw her on a south west Florida shore
Sittin' in the sun by the fallen driftwood
A free sprit and definitely not the girl next door  
With a smile from her, I knew just where I stood  
  
Sitting beside her as the waves crashed against our skin  
She was wearing a white beach dress with a blue feather in her hair  
We talked about the old days and how Tom Petty was her friend  
We shared a bottle of rum, but it was the smoke that took her there  
   
She had a young girl's heart in an old soul  
Dreamed of innocence and rock and roll  
She said as a child I only counted blue cars
Now I live to overcome these permanent scars  
So live by the sun, Love by the moon, dance by the stars  
   
We watched the sunset as she took my hand  
Under that full moon we never felt so alive  
We found comfort in the warmth of the sand  
By morning light she was gone with the tide  
   
She had a young girl's heart in an old soul  
Dreamed of innocence and rock and roll  
She said as a child I only counted blue cars
Now I live to overcome these permanent scars  
So live by the sun, Love by the moon, dance by the stars  
   
( instrumental)  
   
As I walk alone on this shore, I can still hear the echoes of her voice  
Saying...  
If you wanna love me, let your spirit be with mine  
You won't see me tomorrow, but you'll feel me for a lifetime  
   
She had a young girl's heart in an old soul  
Dreamed of innocence and rock and roll  
She said as a child I only counted blue cars
Now I live to overcome these permanent scars  
So live by the sun, Love by the moon, dance by the stars
