"50 Year Love Affair" as written by and Emily Wells....
Hear you
Talking to me, talking to me
Like a dissonant chord
In a minor key on your buffalo strings
All hand tuned
To the ice cream man and a symphony

Been about
Been about fifty years
Even four hundred fifty-two
Coulda loved you longer, coulda loved you blue

Our friends have all made their own way
Some are gone, some are here to stay
The boy's all grown, we heard from him today
And your green eyes are looking at me
Yeah your gray eyes are just trying to see
Just trying to see

Hear me
Talking to you, talking to you
Another summer come
Like a bucket of rain and the daily news
I got a story
Of a couple of lovers who made it through

Been about
Been about fifty years
Even four hundred fifty-two
Coulda loved you longer, coulda loved you blue
Loved you blue

Our friends have all made their own way
Some are gone, some are here to stay
The boy's all grown, we heard from him today
And your green eyes are looking at me
Well your gray eyes are just trying to see
Just trying to see

Pretty little pockets, they are full
Of every little thing I ever gave to you and I love it

Well you gave to me like a giving tree
Fruit so sweet I go swinging free on your branches

Look at the time
Are you look, look, looking, looking at the season?
Just about dawn, baby soon we'll be leaving

Been about
Been about fifty years
Even four hundred fifty-two
We go on living 'cause we don't know what else to do
