lyrics

I didn’t want to see your face but I’m a picture of perfect contradiction
Hello again my love let me offer my benediction
I see through fresh-squeezed eyes you’re wearing the new rings of a tree
Well I fear that a broken bough is all that I’ve grown to be
I’m older than the trunk I climb to reach our memories
Where we listened to the song of the wind before you turned to leaves

How strange the things that age you
Wrinkles where you smile
As if laughter took a greater toll
Than all the tears you didn’t cry

How often do we say goodbye when it really isn’t good?
How often do we stand up knowing we won’t be understood?
Hello again my love how strange that I used to believe
your whispers in the song of the wind before you turned to leaves

How strange the things that age you
Wrinkles where you smile
As if laughter took a greater toll
Than all the tears you didn’t cry

How strange the things that age us
Wrinkles made of wood
Sometimes laughter does what memory
and tears never could
What tears never could
