Lyrics For A Song Written In February 2012

Old Love

Mic McCreadie

In the silence of my midnight room

I’m picking through the past

The photographs and memories

The things I thought would last.

The picture shows a happy scene, our faces lit by laughter

It fills my heart but then it fades

And I go chasing after:

Who were we? Who were we?

Maybe I’ll never know

Who whispered all those words of love

So very long ago?

The sighing sea lulls on the land

Lays kisses on the shore

I sit alone on sea smoothed stone

Can’t bear it any more

Who were we? Who were we?

Who walked this empty strand?

Who laughed and cried

Who kissed and sighed

In Love’s bright happy land?

-Suggested Oboe Solo-

Who was I? Who were you?

What did we ever know?

Why am I alone tonight?

Where did you ever go?

I smell the rain come creeping in

I feel it on the breeze

I pray it brings salvation

On desperate days like these

Let it wash my cares away

Let it ease my soul

Let it free my heart today

Let it make me whole.

Who were we? Who were we?

Perhaps I’ll never know

Who whispered all those words of love

So very long ago? …Oh, so very long ago…
