My Better Years
Now you're back on my doorstep a' crying Like I cried through all those lonely years But I can't dry your tears it's been too long since love was here And I've already gave you my better years And so the pages of time kept right on turning They never stopped for us to harvest the years And old embers of love kept right on dying For there was no one to drown my tears. But I've tried not to blame you and I try not to shame you All I can do now is wish you well But if you should need a friend I'll be there until the end Just don't ask me to love you again. And don't come back to my doorstep a' crying Hoping for what's been dead so long For the embers have all turned to ashes There's nothing here but old memories and this song. No don't come back to my doorstep a' crying There's nothing here but old memories and this song.
