When I was young, I was always alone;
You came along, and my cover was blown.
My love found you where the earth meets the sea;
It slowly grew ?til it swallowed up me.

So we were married, ?til death us do art;
And soon a new life had made a new start.
A little girl was our fondest joy;
Then she was joined by a little boy.

Our son is grown now, he?s left his bed;
Our daughter?s gone, and she soon will be wed.
I still remember their first mistakes;
It fills my heart ?til my heart nearly breaks.

Without our children, our lives grew sad,
Until we found what we already had.
My love will see you through all your fears;
Your love for me does not count the years

I have grown tired now, so give me a kiss;
I don?t know quite how to tell you this;
The time has come, my love, to say good-bye;
My life is done, love, now I must die

Please don?t be sorry that I have gone;
Please don?t you worry, I?ve just gone home.
