    Lyrics

    In a long and involved conversation with myself
    I saw precious things come into view
    And I poured through the files taken off my mental shelf
    I dusted off some memories of you

    Then I thought about the times when all the fair was green
    How the phoenix of our love, first flapped it's silver wings
    All the urgency and passion of each new day as it happened
    And how it all mellowed as it grew

    I remember the times that our laughter would explode
    And how you would turn to hide your smile
    And then the hours of silence while the perfumed candle glowed
    And both of us meandered on for miles

    I remember the time I said, I really had to go
    I remember the tears that filled your eyes
    Then I touched your hand and told you that it really was a lie
    And though you never knew it dear, I cried

    Well it's amazing how time can so softly change your ways
    And make you look at things that can't be seen
    And how the years that roll by can start you listening
    Not just to what they say, but what they mean

    So forgive me my dear if I seem preoccupied
    And if the razor edge of youth filled love is gone
    But we're both a little older, our relationship has grown
    Not just in how it's shaped, but how it's shown

    So forgive me my dear if I seem preoccupied
    And if the razor edge of youth filled love is gone
    But we're both a little older and our relationship has grown
    Not just in how it's shaped, but how it's shown
