Sweet Evening Breeze Lyrics

I was loud and a little sad

She was visiting from atlanta georgia

 

She had come to spend the summer with her dad

I thought she was very pretty

We would kiss and hold hands

 

Every night by the football field

 

Her body was tan

From the afternoons by the public swimming pool

 

Sweet evening breeze

Blows around my thoughts and memories

As I lie here today

And drink my tea

I can still see

Sweet evening breeze

 

I saw her in a coffee shop

In a big hotel down in austin texas

 

She had cut her long hair off

And replaced it with

Blue eyes of sadness

 

Still acted like we were kids

 

And she told me that she had to marry

 

And she asked me if I did

 

Still remember

 

Sweet evening breeze

Blows around my thoughts and memories

As I lie here today

And drink my tea

I can still see

 

Sweet evening breeze

 

How redundant the future can be

These days of old are very very

 

Ridiculous for me to see

 

When I think about the real gone stories

And how time holds the winning hand

 

I can tell by the lines on our faces

 

And the young can't understand

 

That they look at me

 

When they look at themselves

Oh sweet evening breeze

Blows around my thoughts and memories

As I lie here today

And drink my tea

I can still see

Sweet evening breeze
