Hoping for happier times soon....


Ask me why I am so quiet
I am not going to lie to you
Days I didn’t think we would get through
Don’t know where we should turn first
We have seen the best and worst of us
Hope there’s someone watching over you

Look at you, oh love of mine,
Dressed up in your finery
Let’s step outside and have ourselves a time
Put a smile upon our faces
Raise some cheer in this old place
Keep in our thoughts the friends we leave behind

Find the words
They should come easy
Can’t believe what I’ve been seeing
Never thought all this would come to be
So long since we had a laugh
We’ve a lot to catch up after this
Take my hand I need you here with me


Talk of now and
Talk of when
Tell me over and again
There’s nothing so small it isn’t true
Simple things we took for granted
Now we see they’re so important
Love your friends and keep them near to you
