From the recording still you left your mark

This is one of the first songs Jon R. and I ever wrote together.  Very early 1980’s and this demo was recorded down in my basement 8-track studio.  As I remember it, it was just Jon and myself on all the instruments; Jon playing acoustic and electric guitars, plus bass with me playing keyboards, percussion and drums plus vocals.  By today’s standards a bit rough sounding, but remember it was recorded 30+ years ago in a basement….

Lyrics

I watch the years go by
Pass in review
I’ve seen the seasons change
But not half as fast as you
 
I watched you walk away
And take my heart
I let that memory
Fade away into the dark
 
     Still you left your mark
     Cause it showed today
     Someone said you were back
     And I felt it all again
     Year by year coming back
 
Solo
 
     Still you left your mark
     Cause it showed today
     When someone said you were back
     And I felt it all again
     Year by year coming back
     It’s all coming back
