about

The story of the last months of my mother and father's long marriage.

lyrics

She saw him smile
He knows her face from somewhere in the past
Then the smile fades, for memories never last
She saw him smile.
She says hello
Buttons up his shirt and combs his hair
Although the man she's loved's no longer there
She says hello

Remembering when
They danced together in the darkened room
The blushing bride
The nervous, happy groom
Remembering then
Remembering when.

She holds his hand
Together they let time pass unrehearsed
For time has been and gone and done its worst
She holds his hand
She hums their song
Hm hm hm hm hm hm hm hm
La la la la la la la la
He hums along

And then she leaves
He smiles one more time and waves goodbye
The picture of her fading from his eye
And then she leaves
