I Heard Them Say

She had kids, a home, a steady job
And things she had to be
I was wild, on the road, a blowing wind
Living to live free

I heard them say
“Love will grow cold”
Years now, and I still say
Heart and soul

We were young , could not know what life would bring
The things we’d have to bear
Still we walked arm and arm, through rich and poor
Laughter and tears


Now and then there is love that really is
All you want and need
Larger than the life we live
Farther than our dreams
