    LYRICS:
    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 -- Show less
