  • Lyrics
  • A faded wedding photograph
    You and me in our first dance
    Our eyes are closed
    We're lost in one sweet embrace
    Since those days the world has changed
    But our love remains the same
    God knows we've had our share of saving grace

    And I'm proud of all the blessings
    You have given me
    The mountains we have climbed to get this far
    You've learned to take the laughter with the tears
    After all these years

    You make it feel brand new
    After the fires that we walked through
    Against the odds we never lost our faith

    In our house we've made our home
    Where our children all have grown
    Precious moments time cannot erase

    Make a living up and down the gypsy highways
    Seasons that we've had to share apart
    Somehow in my heart I always keep you near me
    After all these years

    After all these years
    You stood by me
    The days and nights that I was gone
    After all these years
    You sacrificed, believed in me
    And you stood strong
    Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
    After all these years

    After all these years
    You stood by me
    The days and nights that I was gone
    After all these years
    You've sacrificed, believed in me
    And you stood strong
    Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
    After all these years Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
