I remember quiet evenings trembling close to you

Operator, number please, it's been so many years
She'll remember my old voice while I fight the tears

Hello, hello there - Is this Martha? - This is old Tom Frost
I am calling long distance, don't worry 'bout the cost
It's been forty years or more now; Martha, please recall,
And meet me out for coffee where we'll talk about it all

And those were days of roses, of poetry and prose
And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me
There was no tomorrow, we packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day


I feel so much older now, you're much older too
How's the husband, how's the kids You know that I got married too
Lucky that you found someone to make you feel secure
We were all so young and foolish, now we are mature

And those were days of roses, of poetry and prose
And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me
There was no tomorrow, we packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day



I was always so impulsive, guess that I still am
All that really mattered then was that I was a man
Guess that our bein' together was never meant to be
Martha, Martha, I love you, can't you see

And those were days of roses, of poetry and prose
And Martha, all I had was you and all you had was me
There was no tomorrow, we packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day

I remember quiet evenings trembling close to you
