love, me lyrics – collin raye

i read a note my grandma wrote back in 1923
grandpa kept it in his coat and he showed it once to me
he said “boy, you might not understand but a long long time ago
grandma’s daddy didn’t like me none but i loved your grandma so

we had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
get married in the first town we came to and live forever
but nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
i found this letter and this is what it said”

chorus:
if you get there before i do don’t give up on me
i’ll meet you when my ch*r*s are through
i don’t know how long i’ll be here
but i’m not gonna let you down
darlin’ wait and see
and between now and then till i see you again
i’ll be loving you
love, me

i read those words just hours before my grandma p*ssed away
in the doorway of a church where me and grandpa stopped to pray
i know i’d never seen him cry in all my fifteen years
but as he said these words to her his eyes filled up with tears

chorus

and between now and then till i see you again
i’ll be loving you
love, me
