Hello, how have you been? My, it's been a long time.
Come on in, take a seat; I'll light the candle and pour
Thought that I would never again see your lovely
face; must admit it's been a dual life ever since you
That smile that you have...how I love that pretty
smile! So glad when you called; you said you'll
stay here for a while.
I realize when we were young you just had to move
away.Told your parents that you loved me, but still,
they wouldn't let you stay.
I can see it in your eyes that you're still in love with me.
Heaven above sent down an angel when you descended
your love on me.
You now show me our promise ring; my heart skips a

forget this night!
Still my girl
Still my love
Still the one who stole my heart
Go on and rest
You are the best
Even in death we did not part!
