About the song: This is a joyful, knowing love song about what it really takes to make a committed, long-term relationship work over the years. In a way, the song could be taken as the sequel to “It’s Time For Roses” here’s how the couple that meets in the bookstore is doing 20 years down the road. The song could be done as a duet, for example, by alternating parts of verses from one partner to the other. You could also turn the song into a country & western waltz by changing the tempo to a slower three-four time.

Gender point of view: I think of the song as coming from the perspective of a married man since it's guys who usually need to learn what long-term commitment means. But there's no reason a woman couldn't be in this position too. The song can also be done as a duet (see the lyrics page).
