Story behind the song
A song about love and disappearance.
Lyrics
It was so many years ago But it seems like yesterday When we would walk along the water And I would melt each time you'd say "Te quiero, mi amor" And you would kiss my cheek And all my troubles would drift away Like a flower down the creek It was so many years ago But the memory's so clear I see the sparkle of your eyes I feel your lips upon my ear The scratchy stubble on your chin The roughness of your hands In my heart I see you and I wonder Who really understands It was so many years ago That we lay side by side Our naked bodies mingling With nothing left to hide I'd watch the ripples of your muscles Beneath the soft glow of the stars While we'd listen to the distant sound Of voices and guitars It was so many years ago The sweat upon your forehead glistened I recall the words you spoke And how the people listened I remember where I sat Looking at your long black hair The debates would last til dawn And change was in the air It was so many years ago But what's most etched upon my mind Was the hour when you left me And our little home behind Ever since that awful moment Things have never been the same The leaves were falling on the rooftops On the day the soldiers came ----- Created October, 2002 Copyright David Rovics 2002, all rights reserved
