1. You Were Here

From the recording Blue Leaf On A Green Tree


Life is short, but it’s very long, as well
I believe in Heaven; it’s sad about Hell
We’ve had a great life where the peaceful waters flow
Now there’s some things I want you to know

Too many days and way too many nights
You were here to your sacrifice
Time is movin’ on, and the words are comin’ slow
But, babe, how I want you to know

That I know you were here when life started closin’ in
I know you were here since I can’t remember when
No matter what, I’ve known all along
You were here

I’m seein’ now a place very far away
Where I’ll be goin’ later today
But before I know it’s time for me to go
Babe, I want you to know

I’ve received permission to say these things to you
More than any wish I have left, I hope you know

I’ve always known you were here, and I love you
