"Where Were You When" as written by and Terrance Lee Sawchuk....
Where were you when my first love came callin'
My heart kept on fallin' like a stone?
Where were you when, I left home for college
Traded that first love for knowledge?

I've lived in the dark, I've refused to forgive
But somehow I knew there was more I could give

Long before you came to me I laid beneath the evergreens
Dreamed this day would come if only I had known
Far beyond the eye could see my soul knew what was best for me
I only had to wait and for that I have faith in love

Who held your hand on your first day to school?
Who read to you that night?
Who broke your heart for the first time?
Did you cry out loud just to know why?

Have you lived in the dark or refused to forgive?
But somehow just knew there was more you could give

Long before you came to me, I laid beneath the evergreens
Dreamed this day would come if only I had known
Far beyond the eye could see my soul knew what was best for me
I only had to wait and for that I have faith in love

Long before you came to me, I laid beneath the evergreens
Dreamed this day would come if only I had known
Far beyond the eye could see my soul knew what was best for me
I only had to wait and for that I have faith

Long before you said to me, ?You saved my heart and rescued me?
I walked this lonely mile and now I hold a smile
Far beyond the mission bells, long before our fare-thee-well
My dream of finding you has finally come true
