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 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 have too much to drink
And we'd laugh at the stars and 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, and I hope and I 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 you're given the choice,
I'm begging you choose to walk away, walk away,
Don't let it get you.
I can't bare to see the same happen to you.

Now son, I'm only telling you this,
Because life can do terrible things.
