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 the the ground on my knees. So don't fall in love there's just too much to lose, and 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.
