lyrics

iles of green outside the family farm
where beads of purple, were pressed into wine
"son a small drink won't do any harm"
i'd raise my hand and smile, "no thanks, I'm fine"

we spent our summers on the italian plains
at age fourteen i never thought about it much
but this mans love for his trade ran through his veins
those grapes begged to be picked, they longed for his touch

and that drink, oh my gosh
i've never tasted something so sweet
before

i taste 73' it was the time you got mad at me, for breaking your window
i taste 84' the time you fell through the floor, lord that was so long ago
i taste 92' i taste the years with you

You worked my little hands to the bone back then
pouring every drop into its vile
i'd trade it all for a chance to pour again
so we could sit and talk, then drink for awhile

and that drink, oh my gosh
i've never tasted something so sweet
before

i taste 78' we'd spent time trying to fix that gate with the old tub of glue
i taste 85' the year you gave me your pocket knife, oh and some stitches too
i taste 2002, i taste the years with you.

and through the passing of time
age settles the score
better is the wine
and i grow to miss you more

i taste 73' it was the time you got mad at me...
i taste 73' it was the time you got mad at me, for breaking your window
i taste 84' the time you fell through the floor, lord that was so long ago
i taste 92' i taste the years with you
