Impressions of a Sunset

      Well, it seems like only yesterday
      I remember the way you held my hand
      How could we have lost our way
      How can I make you understand?

        Instrumental chorus

      While you waited and suffered in hope
      I was really just losing ground
      Trying those wrong turns in the road
      Searching for a love you thought I'd found

        'Cause you loved me
        And I only let you down
        I just couldn't see
        Your smile behind my frown

      A torment of uncertain dreams
      Wonder what might be your reward?
      You got drunk and did foolish things
      While I learned what couldn't be taught

        (repeat chorus)

      Instrumental verse

          (I feel us) slip away
          (I remember) what we had
          (All those) happy days
          (Why did it have to) turn out sad?

      So now I know what'll never free me
      Don't try loving while you're still broke
      I've paid the price, and oh so dearly
      It cost me you and I hurt us both

        (repeat chorus)

      Well, it seems like only yesterday
      I remember the way you held my hand
