In Years

 

I saw her again last night for the first time in years

I remember slender arms in the shadows of the room

I can't recall the last time she was near

Her face was too cloudy with tears

 

            I feel that old soft place in my heart

            Where tender and gentle thoughts are stirred up

 

I knew her lips moved

But no words could I hear

And time stood still for the moment

In the night time it was clear

 

            I feel that old soft place in my heart

            Where tender and gentle thoughts are stirred up

 

                        She slipped away disappearing

                        Me not knowing what to say

                        Was said in years

                        I feel that old soft place in my heart

                        Where tender and gentle thoughts are stirred up

 

There's an old soft place in my heart

Where tender and gentle thoughts are stirred up

In years...
