"Family Tree" as written by and G. Rafferty....
When we were young we used to sing
And we could feel the harmony
You'd sit there waiting in the wings
How long have you been waitin' to let your light shine?

Many years have gone since then
Seen us go our different ways
But now we sit here once again
Tonight we're gonna sing out, tonight our light will shine.

This is the time and place
To bring out our memories
It's written on every face
I can see it in you, you can see it in me.

In all the years we had
As part of a family tree
We knew the good and bad
I can see it in you, you can see it in me.

I know it's left its mark on you
I see the same things in myself
You know there's nothin' we can't do
We've been a long time waitin', but some things never die.

It's time to leave all that behind
It's time to lay that ghost to rest
We can't deny the ties that bind
Tonight we're gonna sing out, tonight our light will shine.

This is the time and place
To bring out our memories
It's written on every face
I can see it in you, you can see it in me.

In all the years we had (when we were young we used to sing)
As part of a family tree (we could feel the harmony)
We knew the good and bad
I can see it in you, you can see it in me.

When we were young we used to sing
