Story Behind the Song

This is a story about a guy that loses his beloved wife that I recently read about. After a few years of being told to move on with his life and "get over it", he realizes he doesn't want to move on and get over it! He wants to stay in the same house, keep up all the pictures, keep all his wife's belongings because he loves his wife so much that, he never wants to let her go. At first I felt really sorry for the guy that he couldn't move on, but the more I read, the more I realized what love he had for his wife, and really had an appreciation and admiration for his true love and loyalty to his wife.

Lyrics

SAVING THIS HEART FOR YOU


Verse
I want to wrap my arms around you
But you haven't lived here for some time
Memories left behind remind me
Like my old t-shirt you wore, your skin's sweet smell still remains
Or that tattered picture I hold, your precious smile soothes all this pain

Chorus
I don't want to say goodbye
Couldn't even if I tried
Doesn't really matter why
I'm saving this heart for you

My friends say to let you go
I need to move on to grow
But I tell them I don't think so
I'm saving this heart for you

Verse
It's been three years last December
Since He came and took you from my arms
I know they say that life's eternal
But if tears could build some stairs and our love lights me a path
Yeah, I'd walk right up to Heaven, and I'd bring you home at last

Chorus

Bridge
Will you wait for me baby
I might be late...
But some day...one day
I'll be ...by your side
Right by your side

Until then....

Last Chorus
I don't want to say goodbye
Couldn't even if I tried
Doesn't really matter why
I'm saving this heart for you

My friends say to let you go
I need to move on to grow
But I tell them I don't think so
I'm saving this heart for you

This heart for you
Saving this heart for you
