I Never Knew Life Could

© 1998 Brad Belt

Her love settled down around me
Peaceful and quiet
Like gently falling snowflakes
Landin' in the night
Hearts melt together
In soft candlelight
I never knew life could
Taste so good

He looked deep into our eyes
He could see the love was true
Said "Will you love and cherish?"
And we said, "I do."
We set sail on the sea of love
I never felt so new
I never knew life could
Feel so good

Then we had a son
He looked a lot like me
We caught fish and we caught ball
And we watched TV
We held each other close
In a nest made of wood
I never knew life could
Be so good
No, I never knew life could
Be so good

The rain felt like spears
That cold November day
The President had called him
We watched him march away
He died that next summer
In a land far away
Ooh, ooh, ooh, no I never knew
