I was in a relationship once. It didn't last. Thank heavens.

I was just a kid of seventeen
and you were thirty-two, dear

I thought I knew what life had planned
and so, I'm sure, did you, dear

Change comes quickly when you're young
when all the world is new, dear

You've no idea how hard I tried
to come back home to you, dear

This was my one chance I craved
surely that you knew, dear

I could not stop to be your wife
I needed more than you, dear

A dozen years of joy and tears,
yet I remember you, dear.
