lyrics

We’ve been on three dates.
And I did my best to woo her.
It feels as though all my life,
I always knew her.
She’s into me aswell,
Exciting new love, can’t you tell
But in the end, I know. This won’t last.

She looks at me,
A way I’ve never seen before.
But I convince myself.
Of pretence and trap doors.
‘Cause I’m one weak mess of a man.
There’s so much I don’t understand.
And in the end, I know, This won’t last.

This won’t last and she tells the most wonderful things.
About what our love and our future will bring.
But in the back of my mind I know I will ruin it.
‘Cause I will mess it up somehow.

Now we have three kids,
And the argueing is frequent.
We’ve both been lashing out,
She’s thinking ‘bout leaving.
And I know I’ll be proven right.
And she’ll escape in the dead of night.
‘Cause in the end, I know this won’t last.

She deserves so much better and I know she knows too.
But apart from my best there’s not a thing I can do.
I’m dissapointing me and I will dissapoint you.
‘Cause I will mess it up somehow.

Many years have passed,
She's still my wife.
And against all expectations.
We’ve been together all this time.
So I guess I was wrong before.
And she’ll stay forever more.
And in the end, I hope, this might last.
