Lyrics – Changed Forever

CHANGED FOREVER

© Shari Ulrich

Forty years by her side
To have and to hold all their lives
Their raised up the kids they best they knew how
Buried their youngest and carried on somehow

Now he works in the yard, the children are grown
‘ til the day that she died he was never alone
He keeps himself busy the best he knows how
Buries the past and carries on somehow

IN THE WIND THAT BLOWS WEST
IN A LOVED ONE’S LAST BREATH
INA MOMENT, LIVES CHANGE FOREVER
OH WITH FIRE OR A FIST
OR A LOVER’S LAST KISS
CHANGED FOREVER

He tells stories of war, of hard lessons learned
When his friends flew without him and never returned
Of the day that they met and the night he came home
With his lifetime of memories he carries on alone

IN THE WIND THAT BLOWS WEST
IN A BABY’S FIRST BREATH
IN A MOMENT, LIVES CHANGE FOREVER
WITH A CHANCE THAT GOES MISSED
OR A LOVER’S FIRST KISS
CHANGED FOREVER

He turns down the bed, he turns out the light
He talks to his daughter, he talks to his wife
He says, “I’m getting along the best I know how,
I feel you there with me and carry on somehow”

IN THE WIND THAT BLOWS WEST
IN A BABY’S FIRST BREATH
IN A MOMENT, LIVES CHANGE FOREVER
WITH A CHANCE THAT GOES MISSED
OR A LOVER’S LAST KISS
CHANGED FOREVER
