You and I

I once believed love didn’t exists

But then I saw you there on the street

I was wrong about love, listen I insist

Then and there I knew we had to meet

When we had met I felt something real

The years together just flew right by

I never thought that I’d ever feel

How did we make it this far, you and I?

 

You got down on one knee and asked a question

I smiled and spoke so happily

I said yes, without hesitation

Our fighting began, lasting is not likely

Just when you think we have given up

She pulled me aside and looked me in the eye

Said she was sorry for the slip up

How did we make it this far, you and I?

 

We have grown old, kids out of the house

Just you and I, how it used to be

No life I’d rather live, than one with my spouse

We’re old and crumply, can’t hear nor see

The doctor said you’re not doing well

You told me you’re not ready to say goodbye

I know it’s frustrating, no need to yell

How did we make it this far, you and I?

 

There she was in that hospital bed

Held my hand with a whisper she died

There’s no life worth living, without you, I said

How did we make it this far, you and I?
