Summer of '69 by One Direction

I got my first real six-string: bought it at the five and dime,
Played it .til my fingers bled;
was the (1)____________ of sixty nine.

Me and some guys from school had a band and we tried real hard.
Jimmy quilt and jody got married;
I shoulda known we'd never get far.

Oh, when I look back now, that summer seemed to last forever,
And if I had the choice, yeah, I'd always (2)__________ be there.
Those were the (3)________ days of my life.

Ain't no usein complainin' when you got a good job to do.

Standin' on your mama's porch, you told me that you'd (4)________ forever.
Oh, and when you held my hand, I knew (5)________ it was now or never.
Those (6)________ the best days of my life.

Back in the summer of sixty nine

Man, we were killin' time, we were (7)__________ and restless, we needed to unwind.
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no!

And now the times are changin'; look at everything that's come and gone.

Sometimes when I play that old six-string I think about you;
Wonder what went wrong.
Standin' on your mama's porch, you told me it'd last forever.
Oh, and (8)________ you held my hand, I knew that it was now or never.
Those were the best days of my life.
