Song Description

Intimate and moving love song about commitment and growing old. Change is hard, commitment is hard. But for many of us it is the meaning of life. To know you are not alone. 'People like to know they have somewhere to go, people like to feel they are needed' We are afraid of growing old, of being alone. Who will grow old with you? who is going to be there for you when you die? "Would you like a guarantee that I will never leave your side, cause I would like that guarantee from you, yes I would like that guarantee from you". A proposal to another to be there for each other. Could be as a spouse, a parent a child or even a good friend. Solo acoustic guitar featuring haunting violin by Anne Lindsay (Blue Rodeo).

Story Behind the Song

Yet another proposal from the writer to his wife.

Written by Reid Jamieson

People like to say
they have somewhere to go
People like to feel they are needed
People like to do what they can to ease the pain
Have you become a person like me?
In the first year of our life
We learn to use our eyes
Following the smiles of the giants
In the last years of our life
We learn we are afraid to die
But are you afraid to live like me?
Are you afraid to live like me?
Are you afraid of the changes
That are racing through your body?
Pushing you towards the end of all you know
Are you afraid to be alone
And left with no one there to hold you
And tell you that it's ok to go...
People like to stay in one place for a while
Change may be the hardest thing to do
Would you like a guarantee
That I will never leave your side?
Cause I would like that guarantee from you
Yes I would like that guarantee from you
Oh yeah, I would like that guarantee from you...
