Here Tonight

The man on the radio
Said it's never been so cold
And it's coming tomorrow night
It's gonna be a rainy day
I wish that I could stay
Oh you know that's my favorite kind

I don't your need your sympathy
But I'd sure like your company today
So just sit here and talk to me
Cause I believe I'll have to go away

Do you really think she looks like me
That's hard for me to see
But it’s awfully nice of you
How'd she get to be so small
That ain't like us at all
Guess she got some of her daddy too

I remember you that age 
I have to say, I always liked you best
Smiling, sweet, without a care
But darling don't you dare tell the rest

I know- there's so much I'm gonna miss
So slow- hard to see it going down like this
Did you hear at the end you see a light
Well my dear, I can see it here tonight

I can see it all so clear
Has it been 50 years
Since the day Kennedy died
That boy sitting next to me
I would not have believed
He'd be here, still by my side

The years came down like falling leaves
New branches on the same old tree
I loved them and they loved me

I know- there's so much I'm gonna miss
So slow- hard to see it going down like this
Did you hear at the end you see a light
Well my dear-

I know- there's so much I'm gonna miss
So slow- hard to see it going down like this
Did you hear at the end you see a light
Well my dear, I can see it here tonight
