Melancholy Memory

I heard the sad news, just as the radio played our Jim Croce' song.... Did they know?.... ... It became our song,.... the spring we turned fifteen.... and gave us an excuse.... to be close... You were so patient sharing your guitar, and teaching me about frets strings, the bridge My fingertips sore, you took my hand in yours.. gently rubbed and, kissed them one by one Did we know young love only has one season? 'Time In A Bottle' was all we had
