Outside the sky is water color grey
Newspaper says to look for rain today
No one around for company
And so I turn to memories to pass the time away

Each face that flashes back to mind
Seems as it was untouched by time
I can't recall quite all the names
Each one is precious all the same

How strange to think
How many friends
Were lost somewhere behind

Where are they now
How I miss those companions
Who walked the canyons of the night
By my side
Where are they now
Like so many crazy dancers
We live only for the answers in a song
But that was long ago
Where are they now

When love was new and wonderful
There was no word impossible
The future we saw with our inds
Was something of our hearts design
Between today and yesterday
Life came between us all

Chorus
