lyrics

Written in the autumn of 2003 for my grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary.

Many years ago a man and his wife, vowed till death us part.
She was the colour in his life, and he held her hand
Whenever things got rough.
Now time’s gone by and love’s still strong.

Love has gone the distance along the road of life
Tried and true they’ll make it to the end.
Love has gone the distance and even when they’re gone
This legacy of love, this legacy of love will carry on.

Picture perfect fades, they face it hand in hand
The unexpected pain, they try to understand.
A gentle love made strong by the sunshine and the rain
Love has overcome.

Now time’s gone by and love’s still strong
Now time’s gone by and love’s still strong.

Love has gone the distance along the road of life
Tried and true they’ll make it to the end.
Love has gone the distance and even when they’re gone
This legacy of love, this legacy of love will carry on.
