When I tell you that tonight I feel incredibly cold
Please don’t tell me that is because I’m growing rather old
Instead why not hug me like you did all those years ago?
When we were young and not afraid to let our feelings show
Do you remember when we first met it must be fifty years
How we’d hug and kiss and cuddle up we hadn’t any fears
Now here we are together but feeling all alone
The family all reared, from the nest they now have flown
They are scattered across the globe with families of their own
My wish for them is that their siblings remember them when they are grown.
When I tell you that I feel incredibly cold
Why not hug me like you did all those years ago?
