Didn't know where to look for you last night,
I didn't know where to find you
I didn't know how I could touch that light,
That's always gathering behind you
I didn't know that I would find a way,
To find you in the morning,
But as love can pull you out of yesterday
As it takes you without warning

I want to be a long time friend to you
I want to be a long time known
Not one of your memory's used-to-be's
A summer's fading song

(CHORUS)
It's from me, it's to you, for your eyes,
It's a weight, a wonder that is wise,
I am here, you are there,
Love is our cross to bear.

I know I'll think of us upon that hill,
With the golden moon arising,
And the stars will fall around us still,
As the love is realizing.

And so it is until we meet again,
And I throw my arms around you,
You can count the gray hairs on my head,
I'll still be thankful that I found you.

(CHORUS)

    General CommentLong distance relationships are never easy....but when you get to be together, it's worth it.

    General CommentAbsolutely heartbreaking. This song is not only about being far apart in distance, but because of circumstances can never be together even if distance wasn't an issue. This is truly one of the saddest songs I've ever listened to and leaves me feeling sad.
