82190573Looking back
He sees it all
It was her first date the
night he came to call

Her dad said son
Have her home on time
And promise me you´ll never leave her side
He took her to a show in town
And he was ten feet off the ground

He was walking her home
And holding her hand
Oh the way she smiled it stole the
breath right out of him
Down that old road
With the stars up above
He remembers where he was the
night he fell in love
He was walking her home

Ten more years and a waiting room
At half past one
And the doctor said come in
and meet your son

His knees went weak
When he saw his wife
She was smiling as she said
he’s got your eyes
And as she slept he held her tight
His mind went back to that first night

He walked her through the
best days of her life
Sixty years together and he
never left her side

A nursing home
At eighty-five
And the doctor said it
could be her last night
And the nurse said Oh
Should we tell him now
Or should he wait until the
morning to find out
But when they checked her room that night
He was laying by her side

Oh he was walking her home
And holding her hand
Oh the way she smiled when he
said this is not the end
And just for a while they were eighteen
And she was still more
beautiful to him than anything
He was walking her home
He was walking her home

Looking back
He sees it all
It was her first date the
night he came to call
