Terrible Things.

By the time I was your age, I’d give anything

To fall in love truly was all I could think
That’s when I met your mother, the girl of my dreams
The most beautiful woman that I’d ever seen

She said, “Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
I can’t help but notice, you’re staring at me
I know I shouldn’t say this, but I really believe
I can tell by your eyes that you’re in love with me”

Now son, I’m only telling you this…
Because life can do terrible things

Now most of the time, we’d had too much to drink
And we’d laugh at the stars and we’d share everything
Too young to notice, and too dumb to care
Love was a story that couldn’t compare

I said, “Girl can I tell you a wonderful thing?
I made you a present with paper and string
Open with care now, I’m asking you please
You know that I love you, will you marry me?”

Now son, I’m only telling you this…
Because life can do terrible things
You’ll learn, one day, I’ll hope and I’ll pray
That God shows you differently

She said, “Boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
It seems that I’m sick and I’ve only got weeks
Please don’t be sad, now I really believe
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me”

Slow, so slow
I fell to the ground on my knees

So don’t fall in love, there’s just too much to lose
If given the choice, then I’m begging you’ll choose
To walk away, walk away, don’t let her get you
I can’t bear to see the same happen to you

Now son, I’m only telling you this…
…Because life can do terrible things
