Lyrics: In Memory (The Tender Years)


I hear the sighing of the wind
Like a murmur of regret
And as I close my eyes I see
A face that I will never forget

I see you running with the dawn
But that was many years ago
When you had seen the tender years
The only years you were to know

I knew a time when you and I
Ran through trees of green and gold
And gazed at clouds of feather grey
I never dreamt we would ever grow old.

But time has passed, my mind will dim
The hands will turn away my days
But you remain a timeless smile
Who’d just begun life’s tangled ways.

Sandy Denny
