lyrics

Let me tell you a story about the life I made
It started back in 1948 I was a boy lost at war
Left school at eleven
Was never made for education
I rolled up my sleeves and just got on with it

But you saved me
From the mess I'd be
The one who kept the demons in my mind at bay
The one who moved up north to start a family
You were 18 regardless of the man I'd turn out to be
I asked your hand and you took a chance on me
You said you would marry me

10 years, 6 kids and a place to call home
A wife that I could depend on
In the town that I grew up in
This life was ours for the taking
I think, I came out this one swinging

But you saved me
From the mess I'd be
The one who kept the demons in my mind at bay
The one who moved up north to start a family
You were 18, regardless of the man I'd turn out to be
I asked your hand and you took a chance on me
You said you would marry me

But in 9 years I started to realise my worst fears, I was losing you to dementia
I wish I could have saved you
And dear, I know that it sounds selfish
But I wish that I could have died first, cause I can't live withou you
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
But you saved me
But you saved me
From the mess I'd be
