Strawberry Wine

Strawberry Wine

He was working through college
On my grandpa’s farm
I was thirsting for knowledge
And he had a car
Yeah, I was caught somewhere between a woman and a child
One restless summer we found love growing wild
On the banks of the river on a well-beaten path
It’s funny how those memories they last

Like strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh bittersweet
The green on the vine
Like strawberry wine

I still remember
When thirty was old
My biggest fear was September
When he had to go
A few cards and letters and one long distance call
We drifted away like the leaves in the fall
But year after year I come back to this place
Just to remember the taste

Of strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh bittersweet
The green on the vine
Like strawberry wine

The fields have grown over now
Years since they’ve seen a plow
There’s nothing time hasn’t touched
Is it really him or the loss of my innocence
I’ve been missing so much
Yeah

Strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh bittersweet
And green on the vine
Like strawberry wine
And seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh bittersweet
The green on the vine
Like strawberry wine
Strawberry wine
Strawberry wine

Strawberry Wine‘ ~Deana Carter~

I can’t believe a song was written about me, this is exactly what I remember from when I was 17! The young love, hot summer nights under the July moon, and the loss of my innocence! Oh….wait…..hmmmm….nope, when I was 17 I was working on the farm, the hot July moon would’ve only witnessed me going to bed early in order to get up with the sun the next morning, and when it comes to young love all I remember is thinking Bruce Springsteen was the coolest and I loved the cows. I don’t think I had the much romanticized version of the teenage years. Did anyone?

This is just a portrait I did yesterday while I was thinking of what to do for my next picture. I thought it was good enough to share, like you guys need another picture of me…….I bet you’re wishing I did landscapes now……but no…….it’s just me again!

The hair is ‘Crowe’ from [monso].

As per usual, my skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’ve added a bit of shadow from one of the selection in the ‘Bold Smokey Wing’ eye shadow from Veechi.
