There Was a Time
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 1-2015

I hear the thunder, I feel the wind
Torn asunder, together again
Heal the pain as I'm drifting away
On a stream of love through a firestorm in the haze

A new beginning, another fresh start
I sense forgiveness in this tattered old heart
And it made a difference, just to know you were there
Put away your sadness, keep the laughter, that we shared

--- Chorus ---
Oh Yeah, There was a time
Oh yeah, just yours and mine
Oh yeah, there was a time
There was a time

I sat a tractor, I drove a truck
I dug four treasures and lost just as much
I saw a mountain and brought it to me
I was a blind man, now the blind man, can see

It may have seemed like, I wasn't concerned
But I left a path around the, bridges I burned
I know you saw it, I was sure that you knew
In spite of the squabbles, I always loved you

-Repeat Chorus-
