Original version of the 1998 single. The original master had been lost to the DAT age but thankfully an MP3 copy was made which has been enhanced for this release.

Silent child I’ve returned
Quiet afternoon
The rain trying to get in
I’m that child again

So I close my eyes and watch the picture
To your face I recall
And sometimes when you’re not around
Sometimes when I’m feeling down
I want you
To chase my fears
Yes wipe them clean away
Your tender Touch
Am I asking too much?

That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
To our young love
Remembering back
To our young love
Remember back
How we first fell in love
How we first fell in love

I was floating with the world
Floating with ideas
Floating with commitment
Don’t want a superficial love
Is that asking too much?
So run across my universe
And whisper my name
I’m searching for a new way
To wake up
Am I asking too much?

That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
To our young love
Remembering back
How we first fell in love
How we first fell in love

It’s a deeper meaning
So let it out
I sense you
When you’re not near
And then you wait
To wake up
Was I asking too much?
