Of course I knew that the time would comeWhen you'd have to leave Because you'd found some oneSomeone you wanted to keep.
But you don't leave me heavy heartedBecause I'm delighted with you And with the road that you're on
And with the man that's pledged to keep youI believe in himAnd his love for you
And I won't need to be there like beforeBecause he'll take care of youAnd he can give you so much moreThan I could give
And you've been true to meSince before you could even speakAnd you've taken my sideWhether I was wrong, whether I was weakWhether I was right
And I need you to knowHow much that's meant to meYou've been resolute and you've been kindA beautiful girl, with a beautiful mind
And so today, I give you awayBecause you've never really been mineTo keep.* Ephesians 5:3131 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. dRae2012
