Still In Love
Words & music © India Taylor
Reading a romance novel, with more upon the shelf
Grandma took care of the family; never talked much about herself.
But I heard her sing a love song, all those years ago
Playing her piano, and that is how I know (she was)
Still in love, still in love, still in love
Still a girl at heart, still in love
Tears came to her eyes when she renewed her wedding vows
I stood there with my camera; she and Granddad looked so proud.
After fifty years together, for better or for worse
The stars kept shinin' in her unspoken universe
She made paper dolls for my mother, and paper dolls for me
I knew her as my Grandma, but only now I see
She let me wear her lipstick, and try on her perfume
She let me read the romance books that she kept in her room.
To the heart it doesn't matter if you're sixty or sixteen
If I reach that silver age, I hope that I will be
