Never Another

And so I married you one day
Oh girl what could I say?
You were loving, blithe and never taunting
I was left by you oh so wanting

And so we bought a small little house
And a cheap car too
It wasn't that much
But I was with you girl
And oh, that was enough

We were always meant to be 
Me and she
Loving each other
But Never Another

Each night you'd fall asleep in my arms 
Your eyes gentle, gazing up at the stars
Our hearts together, our lives self-directed
Each other girl, oh how much we respected

But then one morning you woke me up quick
Told me you felt wrong, like you were some sort of sick
The doctor came by and found you were ill
That nothing could save you, no kiss or no pill
My baby was destined to lie forevermore still

And so I was with you, up 'til the end
And how hard I did try-
For all of my love I could send
Thinking of you, up there in the sky

We were always meant to be
Me and she
Loving each other 
But Never Another...
