lyrics

Sweet Love and Ever After (Andy Worthington)

Many many years ago I first met you
On a crazy weekend in Brixton
Crazy weekends were the norm, running from ourselves
Or trying to find ourselves but through oblivion
Now talk is cheap as I have learned and even lovers lie
But you told me I could trust you and your promise never died
Many many years ago how could I know
That you would be my sweet love and ever after

Broken hearts and broken minds line the road of life
And I know I could have joined the debris
Drinking hard and smoking too like an immortal dream
One from which only your love could save me
For better or for worse are the words of the marriage vow
We never knew how bad things could be - or how good until now
Broken hearts and broken minds are not my fate
Because you are my sweet love and ever after

When the clock struck 35 we thought that it was time
To try to turn our love into creation
And seven months was all it took till he was in our life
That baby boy who arrived without hesitation
Those who are born too soon are like chicks falling from the nest
You hold them in your hand and your love hides your distress
When the clock struck 35 how could we know
That he would be our sweet love and ever after
