New Year's Eve, 1994.
My life has been so cold
So empty, so quiet, so alone
So out of touch, so out of place

All the things that were said And all the things that were not said And all the things that were not done

And I met a young lady That said, It's all right And I will take care of you

And five years ago, I remember My tears on her shoulder And all my unhappiness spilled onto her clothes

A child that no one knew Such a long time ago So out of touch, so out of place

Wandering in the body of a man Feeling so unreal, so awkward So vulnerable, so threatened

And I met a young lady That said, I am on your side And I always will be

And five years ago, I remember How she stayed by my side And how she never left

I had always felt so much shame I had never let myself feel happy And I never listened to anyone else

Pleasure was a stranger to me And so was love And I never listened to anyone else

And I met a young lady That said, Hold me And I did

And five years ago, I remember The love that we shared That lasted a lifetime

A quiet night spent together Lips so softly pressed against mine The smell of her perfume on my bed sheets

I have a necklace That is five years old And it is as strong as ever

And the young lady Who said, I love you And I knew it was real

But five years ago, I remember A young lady that said In five years you will not remember

It has been five years, young lady And I guess what I'm trying to say Is that I love you

1989 December 31
