We were 18, it was prom night. We had our first big fight. She said "Pull this car over". I did and then I told her, "I don't know what you are crying for". I grabbed her hand, as she reached for the door.

She said, I'll walk. Let go of my hand. Right now I'm hurt, and you don't understand. So just be quiet. And later we will talk. Just leave, don't worry. I'll walk.

It was a dark night, a black dress. Driver never saw her, around the bend. I never will forget the call, or driving to the hospital, when they told me her legs still wouldn't move. I cried, when I walked into her room.

She said, I'll walk. Please come and hold my hand. Right now I'm hurt, and I don't understand. Lets just be quiet, and later we can talk. Please stay, don't worry. I'll walk.

I held her hand through everything. The weeks and months of therapy. And I held her hand and asked her, to be my bride. She's dreamed from a little girl, to have her daddy bring her down the isle. So from her wheelchair, she looks up to him and smiles.

And says, I'll walk. Please hold my hand. I know that this will hurt, I know you understand. Please daddy don't cry. This is already hard. Let's go, don't worry. I'll walk.

    I love this song. It gives you the feeling to never give up. And know that everything happens for a reason and there will be a way to fix it. I would have to say it is my favorite country song.

    my Sister's both have paraplastic diapleaga so they can't walk very well. when i heard this song it really reminded me of them. they can walk a little but mostly rely on weelchairs or a walker or the powerchairs they use the most often. =_ _ _ _( but they don't want any pitty! lol

    Ooh... pretty song! *fake sobs*
    This song is about a gril who gets hit by a truck and it messes up her legs, and she knows she can still walk. So when she's about to get married, she walks down the isle without her wheelchair.
    But I guess you pretty much figured that out already. =D

    This song is definitely about someone who can barely walk but during very good times, like marriage, they choose to be strong and walk without the wheelchair...Great song... :)

    The women wants to be alone but gets hit by a car. Marries while being paralyzed. It doesn't matter who you are or what your disabilities are.
