Twenty Years Is Not Enough

So long ago, you and I decided to meet
When I saw you, my heart skipped a beat
And I was late getting there to you
You waited but I’m not sure you knew

From that first moment you were in my view
I was nervous and I tried to keep my cool
You were open to the rest of my broken heart
It was time for something special to start
So after many years of ups and downs
A twisted ride but you still kept me around
What we have is easier than tough
And my love, twenty years is not enough

And if it seems like I’m bitter and oh so cold
Maybe it’s because you’ve never seen me old
If I can’t find the solutions you’re looking for
I hope you don’t decide to walk out the door

Cause from that moment you were in my view
I was nervous and I tried to keep my cool
You were open to the rest of my broken heart
It was time for something special to start
And after many years of ups and downs
A twisted ride but you still kept me around
What we have is easier than rough
So, my love, twenty years is not enough

I wanna be there when our daughter gets married to the boy who never gave up on her
And thinks to himself if he’s a lucky man, they’ll be close like we are and always were

Cause from the moment she was in her view
He was nervous and he tried to keep his cool
And she was open to the rest of his young heart
And they knew something special would start
Then after many years of ups and downs
A twisted ride but she’ll keep him around
I’ll pray to God it will be easier than tough
And hope they know forever is just enough
