Performed by Annie & Mac
Today I went back again and smelled the honeysuckle winds
Out on the Little Vine Church Road
I sat beneath the tulip tree and relived old days of you and me.
I closed my eyes while the memories flowed
And the fragrance entwined with the honeysuckle vines
While the memories danced with the wind
How I wish that you were there, one more time, so we could share
The sweetness of the honeysuckle winds.
I saw two people side by side, a nervous groom, a blushing bride
Leave the church and stopped beneath the tulip tree
And then I raised your veil of lace
And gently kissed your smiling face
Our love was sweet, like the honeysuckle breeze
