The song was written about how it might feel to still be with, and in love with his wife, as "winter" draws near. Each verse ends with a wonderous "surprise" at how much the feelings between them have grown.
The song ends with the couple comfortable and in harmony after all those years, and the spark makes "papa" want to kick up his heels a bit. "Lock up the door, and lets dance that "old dance" once more..."
Cameron wrote the song before he turned 30 so these are his imaginings, but Valdy brought Colour to the picture. And texture. And the feeling of love that the song was written about.

This song was written by David Bradstreet, a Canadian songwriter, I have no idea who Cameron is. Your attempts to review this wonderful piece of iconic Canadian folk music are juvenile at best. Sounds like a grade ten essay. I have been performing this song for more than thirty years and have lived its content. The song speaks for itself.

Indeed, this song was written by David Bradstreet and a brilliant piece of work it is. However, unless the Feb 16, 2015 reviewer was suffering from a broken heart or a forgotten Valentines Day I see absolutely no valid reason for taking a reviewer to task over something that was penned almost 7 years ago. Wow, must be an Irish grudge!
