I hear that love came out of no place
You thought you'd never dance again
Isn't love strange to somehow know when
You heart dares to open again
I've been a lot of things
Since our old times
And I don't claim to understand
How a kind woman and a good man
Leave two parting trails in the sand
Chorus:
I will always see something in you
That belongs here with me
And we can only hope
That after we're gone
There is some gentle glow
Some faint fading light
Here for old times
It's a rare thing, living this life
To really know what loving is
What you show me is
That we're worthy of
All of the love we can give
When I was worlds younger
Full of young wonder
I dreamed of how my life could be
I didn't see some things
I never knew life could bring
All this love out in me
Chorus
And as I read these lines
Shadows crawling into light
I just follow along
To me it's so much more than a song
This is how I'm living, it's how I love
It's all I know
I've been a lot of things
Since our old times
And I don't claim to understand
How a kind woman and a good man
Leave parting trails in the sand
