FONDER TIMES

alone at night i wonder, where iíll find the might

to face tomorrow morningís wake-up call, after answering todayís

of weak and sad demeanor, iím finding it hard

to place my self-assurance on the line, and itís wasting away

ëcause the night is long and iím feeling blue

more so yet when the sun lets through

light that shone upon all we knew when yours was mine

and this rolled up blanket that once was you

must through now and forever do

half for one what it did for two, in fonder times

since youíve been gone, my darling

the face that i don is one of empty smiles and distant sighs

with your name engraved

and when iím asked about you, in memíries i bask

until reality comes racing home, and the truth is betrayed

by the telltale furrows upon my face

morning coffee with teardrops laced

still so bitter the aftertaste you left behind

and the fading photo that smiles at me

wakes no more to what she canít see

dreams we nurtured so lovingly, in fonder times

in fonder times, when the world was our wishing well

and every penny we threw it came to life

so complete was the laughter inside, not a pleasure could we be denied

would you tell me, dear love how it died, so i can move on

ëcause the night is long and iím feeling blue

more so yet when the sun lets through

light that shone upon all we knew when yours was mine

and the fading photo that smiles at me

wakes no more to what she canít see

dreams we nurtured so lovingly, in fonder times

in fonder times
