I went to school, well everybody goes to school
My favourite teacher was a guy who set good books
I found the hardest thing at school was how to spell
And Iím appalling now, especially when Iím tired

My mother worked and brought me up
We were friends until I turned fourteen
Then she found herself a man to love her, she would say
He was nothing like you, nothing like you

I got married aged nineteen, not to my first love
Iím divorced now and a mother to my boys
They keep me sane these two, I wouldnít have it any other way
And we donít see him any more

I left my second job to have my first son
Iím working all the hours I can get
Iíve always kept our head above the waterís edge
Stopped the waterís ruin


I went north, at first I lived in a cheap place
Until a friend was kind enough to put me up
So I went looking for a job, and I found work in engineering
Something I have always loved

I got my own house and made a friend
Itís never easy when youíre moving on
Youíll always need to find a person somewhere
You can call upon

She brought her girls and all their things and all her clothes
We settled down and made a life that wasnít hard
We lived as any couple would with two young girls
We had our ups and downs like anybody else

Though they were my job, growing up
I couldnít help but think about you
And every day that passed I lost another piece of you
Like a fool


One day Iíd like to meet the one whoíll sweep me from my aching feet
Whoíll take the ends and make them meet
If he exists, that is, my friends say he does not exist
But Iíve always been quite the optimist


If they call I will come running
I will walk through fire forever if they ever want me to
It seems that we have lost the time we needed that could make us friends
And I do not know what to do.
