Seems like such a long time ago
I was walking on a lonely road
Getting tired of dreaming alone
Like all the lonely people I have known

Seems like such a long time ago
There was no one who would share my song
I was just a boy far from home
I became a man when you came along

We spent the whole night talking
You said you'd like to see the sunrise
But in the gold of morning
T'was nothing that I had not seen in your eyes

I was so afraid to touch you
Thought you were to young to know
So I just watched you sleeping
Then you woke and said to me
The night is cold it frightens me
I could sleep so easy next to you

Wasn't very long ago
You said that you would like to share my road
Then you started singing my songs
Spent so many nights a waiting
Let's not spend the moments wasting
Time for me has very far to go
I will go if you would take me
I have never had a lover
I am young but I am so alone

We spent the whole night talking
But in the gold of morning
