From the recording MADE IN HEAVEN

I’d see you in the cafeteria,
And I’d pass you in the hall.
By just about any criteria,
We hardly ever talked at all.
Then came the Senior Auction,
And I won you with the highest bid.
We agreed ‘neath the setting sun:
“We talk more now than we ever did.”

Those high school days were just the start
Of so many happy years.
Love was beating in my heart;
Wedding bells ringing in my ears.
When I sat on your hospital bed
While you gently nursed our first kid,
I remember that we both said,
“We talk more now than we ever did.”

Life is full of surprises
Up around every bend.
Sometimes all that survives is
A memory from “way back when.”
Just another drunk driver
Weaving home from a party.
That stoned sole survivor
Stole you away from me.

Now, I visit your tombstone
(Been coming here for years).
Sweetheart, I can’t leave you alone
In this graveyard full of fears.

Those aren’t tears upon my cheeks,
Just rain falling from my eyelids.
I know what you’d say if you could speak:
“We talk more now than we ever did.”
