Story Behind The Song

Exactly what it says in the lyric. At the time I wrote it, I was home alone for a few days, and feeling lonely.

Photographs Memories and Ruby Red Wine (Words and music by Alan Gillis)


Photographs memories and Ruby Red Wine
Help the hours go by
A little more wine and I'll be just fine
Except for the tears in my eye

Verse 1
Here's a picture I took on that very first date
Another right by your front door
I dream of that smile
The look in your eyes
I can still see the dress that you wore
I taste the perfume of that very first kiss
Feel your arms hold me tight
But the bottle's run dry there's a tear in my eye
And I wish you were with me tonight

Repeat chorus

Verse 2
Remember the day we went down to the shore
The pictures we drew in the sand
Then the foam and the spray
Washed them away and we'd run to the sea holding hands
I taste the salt in your kiss
Float in a mist
There's a still in the air all around
But the bottle's run dry there's a tear in my eye
And I wish you were with me right now

Repeat chorus

And I wish you were with me tonight
