lyrics

Old man sitting on the edge of his chair,
His mind will take him anywhere,
So, he thinks of her and it brings him back,
To the life he had with a love who's passed.

And though she may be gone, in his mind, she carries on,
Just not as clear as before,
So he tries so hard to live inside his thought,
But her smile slips away from him more.

Old man shuffles through his room in the dark,
To find the photograph he guards,
Of their wedding day 50 years ago,
He falls asleep as he hold it close.

And though she may be gone, in his mind, she carries on,
Just not as clear as before,
So he tries so hard to live inside his thought,
But her smile slips away from him more.

And that memory is all he has,
So, he'll fight his mind to get it back,
And that memory is all he has,
So, he'll fight his mind to get it back.

Old man sitting on the bench in the park,
To face the path they used to walk,
But the winds have changed and he's all alone,
So he rights his cane and he heads on home.

And though she may be gone, in his mind, she carries on,
Just not as clear as before,
So he tries so hard to live inside his thought,
But her smile slips away from him more.

And that memory is all he has,
So, he'll fight his mind to get it back,
And that memory is all he has,
So, he'll fight his mind to get it back.
