​Old Lovers

This song is by Richard Ruane and appears on the album Things That Strangers Say (2001).

Lovers once were here
Now are past and gone
Sometimes easy leaving
Sometimes raw and wrong
All those lows and peaks
Hide and seeks
Never really leave you
They're never really gone

But I can still remember
The looks, the smiles, the eyes
Sweet voices and soft replies
The early light when love was bright
And we'd walk arm in arm
And hold each other tight

But I know we don't live there any more
I know time has closed that door
And I feel my life has truly changed
But love is always love and part of it remains

Well I have got a lover now
The deepest one I've known
A house beside a river
Children of our own
Though life is bliss
Still I'll reminisce
Of the life I knew before her
The early loves I'd known

Old lovers know me well
But they don't lead me astray
Share a smile, talk a while
We're rooted in today
Through the saddest ends
Time makes amends
And sometimes we'll stop to talk
Before we go our way

And I know we don't live there any more
I know that time has closed that door
And I feel my life has truly changed
But love, it's always love and part of it remains
Part of it remains
