Lyrics

Iíve Still Got You††

Iíve sometimes said that thereís nothing that will make you wish for the rapture more than facing the prospect of losing the one you love the most.† I wrote this song during the long months of Lornaís chemo-therapy treatments, when we came face to face with the reality that we have no guarantee of growing old together.† Itís become my Thanksgiving song.†††††

 

Thereís a cold wind blowing through the lilac hedge tonight

Seems like Summer slipped away without a chance to say good-bye

So curl up here beside me girl, weíre gonna be all right

Oh, itís a melancholy mood Iím in but Iím not gonna cry†

 

ĎCause Iíve got you, and a leather-bound copy of a book I love to read

Iíve still got you, so let those Winter winds come early

I have everything I need, Ďcause Iíve got you

 

The boys both cried this morning when we dressed to go outside

I said ďwe canít go barefoot anymore, at least not Ďtil next MayĒ

I tried to make them understand that Winterís not so bad

I only half convinced myself, Ďcause Spring seems much too far away

 

But Iíve got you, and two boys who call me Daddy

Iím a lucky man indeed, Ďcause Iíve got you

So let those Winter winds come early

I have everything I need, Ďcause Iíve got you

 

Iím often good with words if I have time to write them down

Or to clearly think them over and arrange them in my head

But when life gets so uncertain, and the world turns upside-down

The right words all too often go unsaid

 

But you understand my weakness, and you love me just the same

And you somehow seem to know just what I mean

Youíve been my inspiration, through the tough times we just had

Now the road ahead looks better than itís been

 

ĎCause Iíve got you, and the words of my new love song

Iíd love for you to hear, Iíve still got you

So let those Winter winds come early

I have everything I need, Ďcause Iíve got you...
