The music played our song, as I walked out the door.
It played on like many times before,
when I left her behind.
Oh, let me count the times.
And when I drove away, it played and played in my head.
Gettin' down the road with a heavy load, I drove for miles
rememberin' all the good times, rememberin' all the bad times
They played and played in my head, like that song.
I stopped by the small cafe', where we stopped that day.
Looked at the table in the corner where we sat,
where I asked her to be with me forever, and yet
the song played and played in my head.
There was the red checkered cloth,
the small candle on the table, burnin'
I remembered her tears,
my thoughts and my heart yearnin'
to live our lives together through thick and thin,
thunder and rain, and all kinds of bad weather.
The song played and played in my head.
When I left there, it was rainin' bad.
I remembered her and all that we had,
and the song played and played in my head.
I turned around, headed back through the storm,
thought how I would hold her in my arms.
And it played and played in my head like the song.
I pulled in the drive, she was standin' there in the rain.
My heart was beatin' hard, like a fast runnin' train,
She walked out to meet me, I saw the tears runnin' down.
I opened the door, looked at her face, we held each other close,
forever and ever, in a lover's embrace.
I heard the song, as I looked into her eyes, and it played in my head.
Love played in my heart, as I swore I'd never leave her.
We stood there, lovers cryin' in the rain.
As we held each other, I heard the song, and then it was plain to me.
Our old love had been born again.
