The Good Wife

lyrics

Early February 1965.
On the day you met her,
on the day your heart came alive.
Before the birth of your two sons,
before the war stole your pride.
You drew a picture of a house
and told her, “This is yours and you are mine."

You bought a house and filled up all the rooms
with all the people that she knew.
You danced with her until the night was through—
her eyes never strayed from you.

Late November 1999.
On the day you lost your breath,
on the day she watched you die.
After you watched your sons grow tall,
after you poured a drink for the last time.
You held her hand over your heart
and told her, “This is yours and you are mine."

Well, she took the house and filled up all the rooms
with all her memories of you.
She loved that house until the roof fell through—
always wishing she had you.

She took the house and rented all the rooms
and let the people share your tomb.
She loved that house until the roof fell through—
always wishing she had you.
Well, she had you.
She had you.
She had you.
Oh, she had you.
She had you.
