A faded wedding photograph
You and me in our first dance
Our eyes are closed
We're lost in one sweet embrace
Since those days our world has changed
Our love remains the same
God knows we've had our share of saving grace

And I'm proud of all the blessings
You have given me
The mountains we have climbed to get this far

You learn to take the laughter with the tears
After all these years

You make it feel brand new
After the fires that we've walked through
Against the odds we never lost our faith
In our house we've made our home
Where our children all have grown
Precious moments time can not erase

Make a living up and down the gypsy highway
Seasons that we've had to share apart
Somehow in my heart I'll always keep you near
After all these years

After all these years
You stood by me
The days and nights that I was gone
After all these years
You sacrificed, believed in me
And you stood strong
Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
After all these years

After all these years
You stood by me
The days and nights that I was gone
After all these years
You sacrificed, believed in me
And you stood strong
Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
After all these years

    General CommentThis song will always remind me of when I went out to San Francisco for a Make-A-Wish trip to meet Journey after a kidney transplant. My family and I actually got a chance to go in the studio with them while they were working on the new album. Joe Satriani was there too, no joke! Can't wait til the album comes out on June 3! Also can't wait for the concert with Heart and Cheap Trick in Saratoga NY on August 24, 4 days before my birthday.
