This Time Long Ago

This song is by The Guess Who and appears on the album This Time Long Ago (2001).

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Golden pennies on the breezes creepin'
Falling softly while the trees are sleepin'
Telling secrets to the earth below
Here's a secret that the trees don't know
Burning kisses in the early snow
This time long ago

There's a letter full of last year's teardrops
Silver shadows hide among the treetops
Hear the laughter from another day
See a face about a year away
Hear a voice that whispered "I can't stay"
This time long ago

What a time to stop and cry
Beauty all around but I
Can only see the fallen leaves
That bring heartbreaking memories that I
Should not remember

La la la la
Her gentle touch
La la la la
The way she smiled, it meant so much to me

Other loves might come and go
Stop a while and say "hello"
But the only love I'll ever know
Was this time long ago
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
