Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town Lyrics

I seem to recognize your face
Haunting, familiar yet, I can't seem to place it
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
Lifetimes are catching up with me

All these changes taking place
I wish I'd seen the place
But no one's ever taken me

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

I swear, I recognize your breath
Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising
Me, you wouldn't recall for I'm not my former
It's hard when you're stuck upon the shelf

I changed by not changing at all
Small town predicts my fate
Perhaps that's what no one wants to see
I just want to scream hello

Well, my God it's been too long
Never dreamed You'd return
But now here You are and here I am

Hearts and thoughts they fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade away
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
Fade away, fade away

Time goes by so fast. You can relive a decade just by seeing an old familiar face, especially in a small town. Our old lovers and friends move on. This song is awesome. Maybe one day, some day...

This song is great! I wish I could go back to a bette place than I came from. But just hearing it is enough. One can hope & dream No that isn't reality. But to just think is fab.They rock me.

hearts and thoughts they fade... away, this line from the song as helped me to be released from anxiety when in public places. At times I'm singing the words quietly to myself.
