    Met my old lover in the
      grocery store
    The snow was falling Christmas Eve
    I stole behind her in the
      frozen foods
    And I touched her on the sleeve
    She didn't recognize the
      face at first
    But then her eyes flew
      open wide
    She went to hug me and she
      spilled her purse
    And we laughed until we cried.
    We took her groceries to the
      checkout stand
    The food was totalled up and
      bagged
    We stood there lost in our
      embarrassment
    As the conversation dragged.
    We went to have ourselves
      a drink or two
    But couldn't find an open bar
    We bought a six-pack at
      the liquor store
    And we drank it in her car.
    We drank a toast to
      innocence
    We drank a toast to now
    And tried to reach beyond
      the emptiness
    But neither one knew how.
    She said she'd married her
      an architect
    Who kept her warm and safe
      and dry
    She would have liked to say she
      loved the man
    But she didn't like to lie.
    I said the years had been a
      friend to her
    And that her eyes were still
      as blue
    But in those eyes I wasn't
      sure if I saw
    Doubt or gratitude.
    She said she saw me in the
      record stores
    And that I must be doing well
    I said the audience was
      heavenly
    But the traveling was hell.
    We drank a toast to
      innocence
    We drank a toast to now
    And tried to reach beyond
      the emptiness
    But neither one knew how.
    We drank a toast to innocence
    We drank a toast to time
    Reliving in our eloquence
    Another 'auld lang syne'...
    The beer was empty and our
      tongues were tired
    And running out of things to say
    She gave a kiss to me as I got out
    And I watched her drive away.
    Just for a moment I was
      back at school
    And felt that old familiar pain
    And as I turned to make
      my way back home
    The snow turned into rain --
