From the album "Exhibit A" (1996).


These lonely times
Are just a dying flame
Of what once was inside
And now I'm yearning
For those feelings felt
Through eyes that were still wide

And even though we've grown too soon
You were my childhood song
And now I wander til it ends
Hoping we will touch again

That time of joy
Like a passing reflection
In a falling tear
Can never hold on
To the stem of my soul
When those memories burn so near

And even through your sweetest pain
You were my childhood song
So now I wander til it ends
Hoping we will touch again

My heart was too young
To understand the gift
That you gave me long ago
But time has uncovered
A piece of myself
Which belongs to you I know
