take me back to many years ago
watch me dance in the fresh snow
first i had seen since i was two
how i wish i could have spent it with you

mother came and brought my kin
then left the next day to washington
first time i'd seen them in a year or two
how i wish i could have seen them with you

flash back to a christmas din
dressed fancy just to stay in
spoke quietly with no reason to
i'm glad i got to be there with you

in a park with nowhere else to go
it was a comfortable quiet, you said so
you spoke gently and i did too
that was the first day i got to be with you
