I saw your light in the window, as I was passing your door
I thought I?d look in to see how you?ve been as I?ve done so often before
You don?t look a half a day older; sure we?re all coming into our prime
And now that we?re here, draw up a chair; we?ll make up for lost time


It?s good to be back among friends again
I?ve been away too long
To sit by a fire like we did back then
Maybe sing a song - sing along

The children are growing like flowers; the youngest one?s taller than me
It doesn?t seem long since I?d sing her a song as she danced up and down on my knee
The rambles on long summer evenings, the stir at the turn of the year
Those memories remain, the welcome?s the same, I?m glad to be here


A couple of places are empty, how long is it now since they?ve gone?
A few years ago the night of the snow we sat up and talked ?til the dawn
But no tears for the years that have vanished; there?ll be plenty more dawns just as fair
The night is still young, there?s songs to be sung and stories to share
