Versuri Mayday Parade - Terrible Things
By the time I was your age I’d give anything To fall in love truly was all I could think That’s when I met your Mother, the girl of my dreams The most beautiful woman that I’d ever seen She said, “Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing? I can’t help but notice you staring at me I know I shouldn’t say this but I really believe That I can tell by your eyes that you’re in love with me” Now son, I’m only telling you this because life, can do terrible things Now most of the time we had too much to drink We'd laugh at the scars and we'd share everything Too young to notice and too dumb to care Love was a story that couldn't compare I said, “Girl can I tell you a wonderful thing? I've made you a present with paper and string Open with care, now I'm asking you please You know that I love you, will you marry me?” Now son, I'm only telling you this because life, can do terrible things You'll learn one day, I hope and I pray that God, shows you differently She said, “Boy can I tell you a terrible thing? It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks Please don't be sad now, I really believe You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.” Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees So don't fall in love, there's just too much to risk If given the choice then you've got to choose To walk away, walk away Don't let her get you I can't bare to see the same thing happen to you Now son, I'm only telling you this because Life, can do terrible things.
