Lyrics

 

(V1)     When I was just a girl, 

I'd run, stumble and fall.  

You'd hold and comfort me

'til I felt no pain at all.  

 

(V2)     And as a baby girl,

you fed and diapered me.  

At night, when I was scared,  

you'd sing me back to sleep.  

 

(BR1)  You know I love you.  

I'll always care.  

Hush now, my darlin'.  

 

(CH)    It's all right, it's all right. 

It's all right, it's all right. 

It's all right, it's all right. 

It's all right, it's all right. 

 

(V3)     Now, in your golden years, 

I'm taking care of you.  

The times have surely changed.  

The roles reversed, it's true.  

 

(V4)     The time is drawing near.  

There's nothing more to gain.  

My heart tears up inside  

to see you in such pain.  

 

(BR1)  (Repeat Bridge)

 

(CH)    (Repeat Chorus) 

 

(V5)     Your time is now at hand.  

There's no more fighting death.  

I'm kneeling at your side  

as you take your last breath. 

 

(BR2)  You know I love you. 

Go toward the light.  

Let love surround you.  

 

(CH)    (Repeat Double Chorus)

 

(TAG) I wish I may, I wish I might 

go back when everything was right,

when I was just a girl.
