I'm so glad you came I'm so glad you remembered To see how we're ending our last dance together Expectant but too punctual but prettier than ever I really believed that this time it's forever
But older than me now, more constant, more real And the fur and the mouth and the innocence Turned to hair and contentment that hangs in abasement A woman now standing where once there was only a girl
I'm so glad you came I'm so glad you remembered The walking through walls in the heart of December The blindness of happiness Of falling down laughing And I really believed that this time was forever
But Christmas falls late now, flatter and colder And never as bright as when we used to fall All this in an instant before I can kiss you A woman now standing were once there was only a girl
I'm so glad you came I'm so glad you remembered To see how we're ending our last dance together Reluctantly, cautiously but prettier than ever And I really believed that this time it's forever
But Christmas falls late now, flatter and colder And never as bright as when we used to fall And even if we drink I don't think we would kiss In the way that we did when the woman was only a girl

François from Longueuil,canadaI've been a nostalgic person since before I had memories to ad to the feeling and to me this song, even without the words , is what the nostalgic feeling would be if it was a sound.
Paul from Tucson, AzThat's funny that he whisper a line from another song because he also whispers "Fly me to the moon" in Lovesong, same album!
Martha from Pasadena, CaThis song is so melancholic and beautiful. It reminds me of the transition of leaving childhood behind and the transition into adulthood; wonderful but also a place were ordinary things have lost their wonder. It also reminds me of how fragile life is and how nothing is forever...
Miguel from Casa Grandes, MexicoIn my opinion its about going away from someone and also growing up,like maturing or getting over something,i love this song
