  1. Before You Know

Lyrics

Author: Douglas Haines

we take the long ride
down by the river
I hold you close like
the night we shivered in the rain

you touch like dancin' fingers fallin’
in the moonlight,
you softly callin’ out my name

CHORUS
we didn't know what we had back then
closed our eyes and it was gone like the wind
but the only thing we'd ever change
is how fast time does go
before you know

dusty back road down to Akers ferry
paper boats in, the water carried them away
we watched them fadin’ in to misty memories
your eyes laughin’ always askin' me to stay

CHORUS
we didn't know what we had back then
closed our eyes and it was gone like the wind
but the only thing we'd ever change
is how fast time does go
before you know

BRIDGE:
I see you standing in your white dress in the meadow
Holdin’ up flowers to your face
then you gently let them go

but the only thing we'd ever change
is how fast time does go

the only thing we'd ever change
is how fast time does go
before you know
