Verse 1
Just yesterday the memory came to me
Of the day I finally told you
Our love wasn't meant to be
The day I let you down

I wanted to feel the wind fill my sails
But I saw you as a harbor
As a anchor in the gales
That's not the way I see you now

Chorus
Time makes us wise
Time makes us fools
I never looked in your eyes
I look past them somehow

I wish that I had seen you then
The I see you now

( break )

Verse 2
You had a power in those gentle hands
A quiet peace about you
My heart couldn't understand
Like snow upon the ground

You saw so much invisible to me
The woman in you waited
For the man I was to be
That's the way I see you now

I finally see you now

Chorus
Time makes us wise
Time makes us fools
I never looked in your eyes
I look past them somehow

I wish that I had seen you then
The I see you now

That's the way I see you now
I finally see you now
