“You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.”

- David Harkins
(b. 14 Nov 1958)

Traces

Written by Buddy Buie, James R. Cobb (b. 05 Feb 1944), and Emory Gordy, Jr. (b. 25 Dec 1944)

Recorded by The Classics IV, 1969


Faded photographs, covered now with lines and creases
Tickets torn in half, memories in bits and pieces
Traces of love, long ago, that didn't work out right
Traces of love

Ribbons from her hair, souvenirs of days together
The ring she used to wear, pages from an old love letter
Traces of love, long ago, that didn't work out right
Traces of love � with me, tonight

I close my eyes and say a prayer
That in her heart she'll find
A trace of love still there somewhere, ohhh oh

Traces of hope in the night
That she'll come back and dry
These, traces of tears
From my eyes
Ohh oh oh ohhhh
