I saw you today, or at least I think it was
It's hard to say, we've all changed so much,
Compelled to look, but I hid my face
It's hard to trace, these feelings
Gone so soon, the time I spent with you
And like an old, old tune-keeps running through my head-
I wanted to say, so many things
But my mouth went dry, and one word and I'd cry.

Slender bride, your beauty shines from you
And forever more, I'll be on your side for sure,
A light in your life, that always burns for you
As time passes, so quickly.

The final stage, we've both reached some way
As we board our trains to different stations
And the parts we play, and the things we say,
Words on the way, to discovery

    General CommentThose lyrics are true. Way I see it; "And forever more I'll be on your side for sure..." I think old partners always have a place in your heart, in particular your first love.

    The whole song rings true to me though. Certainly makes me think of my ex too.
