about

This song was written by Todd Mayo in the spring of 2012. During these days, he would often stare in awe at the Pacific Ocean from Point Dume. Possibly this inspired him to reference his two daughters in the last chorus after the sobering depth of the last verse.

lyrics

Every time I sit in wonder thinkin on the past
I grow weary from the loss
when i dwell too long the good ole days
I get sorry for myself

Oh my sweet angel
I hope life will treat you well
Oh my sweet darlin
I wish you every happiness
but all of us old folks
know love ain’t easy

can you ever be to careful with the state of your own heart
and should you falter should you fall

like floods bring the waters & storms the rains
life’s lessons are taught by pain

Jesus can you help me - Lord I know I’m lost
I’ve got it all but all is lost
my body is dying -my eyes are fading
but my soul it carries on

Oh my sweet Emma
I hope your life will be so grand
Oh darling Georgia
I wish you every happiness
all who have loved
know life ain’t easy
