Years Ago

Years ago when you said
It's too hard to make a living
I would smile with my eyes
To see your face in the mirror
I would try to explain to you

The man behind the counter says
How do you feel without a lover
He's too old to see my fears
See my tears or feel the sorrow
I would try to explain to him

She has left so many times
She forgot why she was staying
I recall her in my arms
Saving all that we were giving
I would try to explain to her

But she's gone, she's gone behind the cloud
Lord, she's gone, she's gone beyond the sky

The grass is blank where he stands
To see the trees and the sunshine
I realize it must be me
Who is able to change him

Years ago when you said
It's too hard to make a living
I put a smile on my face
To see your eyes in the mirror
I would try to explain to you

But I'm gone, I'm gone behind the cloud
Yes, I'm gone, I'm gone beyond this sky
