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, 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.
