The day I went to visit her
Soon after she turned ninety-four
The coffee and the Entenmann's
We talked as if we were old friends

She filled me in on gossip
All the seniors in the complex
We talked about the days gone by
And then she told me with a sigh,

It's been twenty-seven years
He's passed away
It still feels like yesterday

The conversation turned to love
As any long talk always does
She asked about my situation
Was there someone I was dating

I told her of a pretty girl
Who's teaching me to dance
She told me how she love to dance
But only with one man then she said,

When they play that music
I turn the other way
Since my dancing partner's away

Driving home so late that night
My mind still recollecting
All the many things we talked about
Like living with and then without

I wondered to myself if I would
Ever love someone that way
And in the echoes of that night
I still can see her as she's saying,

When they play that music
I turn the other way
Since my dancing partner's away
