  • Looking back
    He sees it all
    It was her first date the night he came to call

    Her dad said son
    Have her home on time
    And promise me you'll never leave her side
    He took her to a show in town
    And he was ten feet off the ground

    He was walking her home
    And holding her hand
    Oh the way she smiled it stole the breath right out of him
    Down that old road
    With the stars up above
    He remembers where he was the night he fell in love
    He was walking her home

    Ten more years and a waiting room
    At half past one
    And the doctor said come in and meet your son

    His knees went weak
    When he saw his wife
    She was smiling as she said he's got your eyes

    And as she slept he held her tight
    His mind went back to that first night


    He walked her through the best days of her life
    Sixty years together and he never left her side

    A nursing home
    At eighty-five
    And the doctor said it could be her last night
    And the nurse said Oh
    Should we tell him now
    Or should he wait until the morning to find out

    When they checked her room that night
    He was laying by her side

    Oh he was walking her home
    And holding her hand
    Oh the way she smiled when he said this is not the end
    And just for a while they were eighteen
    And she was still more beautiful to him than anything
    He was walking her home
    He was walking her home

    Looking back
    He sees it all
    It was her first date the night he came to call Writer/s: BRENT BOURGEOIS, CHRIS EATON
