Lyrics

That Was Then
Music and Words by Mindy Jostyn

I found a stray dog on the highway
She’s lying by the stairs
Keeping one eye on the door
Like she’s picturing someone who’s not there
On the right kind of summer night
In the right kind of mood
When the heat’s thick as honey
And the crickets sing in and out of tune
I can see you so clearly
Coming over Shadow Hill
I see your hand brush through your hair
I can feel you like a chill
(Chorus)
But that was then and this is now
That was then and this is now
Just one of those mysteies of life
You don’t know why, you don’t know how
Like a river running dry
Like an old forsaken town
Once I looked at you through starry eyes
But that was then, and this is now
(Bridge)
Well, maybe angels hover ’cause
Someone’s watching over me now
Home is a safe place to be
Another life
Another destiny
But in the right kind of twilight
When sundown brings a chill
And the mist starts to rise
Up on top of Shadow Hill
I can still hear you breathing
And I tremble at the sound
So afraid I’ll blow away
And be swallowed by the ground
Chorus
But that was then and this is now
That was then and this is now
Just one of those mysteries of life
You don’t know why, you don’t know how
Like a river running dry
Like an old forsaken town
Once I
looked at you through starry eyes
But that was then and this is now
Like a book of ancient history
That was then and this is me
