We were barely seventeen
Two kids with the grown up dream
Of a perfect love Foolin' round in my first car
Careful not to go too far
That's how it was
We had a simple wedding
You looked beautiful in white
And I recall your mother's blessing
On our wedding night "I wish you every happiness
And may you always have the best
Of the good things in life"

We moved into a commission house
It wasn't much and it wasn't ours
But we had plans
I worked nights and you worked days
And twelve months seemed to slip away
Like an avalanche
Then I came home one morning
Found your note pinned to the door
Saying if this is a perfect love
I don't want it any more

But "I wish you every happiness
And may you always have the best
Of the good things in life"

I was back in town just passing through
Catching up with friends we knew
For old times sake In a crowded lunch time bar
I turn around and there you are
Face to face
And for the sweetest moment
A smile came to your eyes
So I whispered as you walked away
With the new man at your side
"I wish you every happiness
And may you always have the best
Of the good things in life"
