lyrics

A dusty box of photographs found on the closet floor.
I’m amazed to see a life I never knew before. Was there more?
Did they ever use pet names
when hand in hand? Send Valentines?
Play lovers’ games?

These long forgotten memories,
a life left far behind.
Did she ever have a second thought
or did he fade from mind?

She’s laughing on a sunny beach; she never went with us.
Here he holds her close, their eyes are locked, so amorous. Love close up.
Why did they end up apart?
Left in the past. What caused this shift?
This change of heart?

These long forgotten memories,
a life left far behind.
Did she ever have a second thought
or did he fade from mind?

Sitting here I can’t help thinking
Sixty years, that could be me
With my daughter, the one wondering
About a life, she didn’t see
And I know I can’t allow that
That I need to tell her soon
Of my life before our family
My own sunny afternoons

I close the box of photographs to take them home with me
so that I can keep discovering her history. What will I see?
Will I like all that I find?
I’ll take that chance. She won’t be less,
just redefined.

Will I like all that I find?
I’ll take that chance. She won’t be less,
just redefined.
