lyrics

We're reunited after all these years
And you survived in spite of all my fears
I thought I lost you on that fateful night
So long ago

Indeed the stars shone brightly in the sky
But not so near as brightly as your eyes
A mix of fear and fervor spurred us on
But that you know

We thought that victory was worth the cost
But in our war for freedom both were lost
The cause we championed has now been forgot
As the world moved on

After that day I laid my rifle down
The drums that haunt your dreams are silent now
And our comrades went their separate ways
Their spirit gone

Oh Miranda
It all seemed so romantic to us way back then
We were young and foolish and we paid the price
In liberty and pain

Oh Miranda
Now that I hold you in my arms again
I can believe that our sacrifice
May not have been in vain

While it is true that we're now old and gray
And scars may fade but never go away
Yet I think that there is still so much
Of life ahead

Now that we're together, free at last
Let's just look forward and forget the past
You return revived a future that
I thought was dead

Oh Miranda
It all seemed so romantic to us way back then
We were young and foolish and we paid the price
In liberty and pain

Oh Miranda
Now that I hold you in my arms again
I can believe that our sacrifice
May not have been in vain
