Story

This is one of the first songs Jon R. and I ever wrote together.  Very early 1980’s and this demo was recorded down in my basement 8-track studio.  As I remember it, it was just Jon and myself on all the instruments; Jon playing acoustic and electric guitars, plus bass with me playing keyboards, percussion and drums plus vocals.  By today’s standards a bit rough sounding, but remember it was recorded 30+ years ago in a basement….

Lyrics

I watch the years go by

Pass in review

I’ve seen the seasons change

But not half as fast as you

 

I watched you walk away

And take my heart

I let that memory

Fade away into the dark

 

     Still you left your mark

     Cause it showed today

     Someone said you were back

     And I felt it all again

     Year by year coming back

 

Solo

 

     Still you left your mark

     Cause it showed today

     When someone said you were back

     And I felt it all again

     Year by year coming back

     It’s all coming back
