She takes the back road and the lane
Past the school that has not changed
In all this time
She thinks of when the boy was young
All the battles she had won
Just to give him life

That man
She loved that man
For all his life
But now we meet to take him flowers
And only God knows why

For what's the use in pressing palms
When children fade in mothers arms
Its a cruel world
Weve so much to lose
And what we have to learn
We rarely choose

So if it's God who took her son
He cannot be the one living in her mind

Take care my love, she said
Don't think that God is dead
Take care my love, she said
You have been loved

If I was weak, forgive me
But I was terrified
You brushed my eyes with angels wings
Full of love
The kind that makes devils cry

So these days
My life has changed
And I'll be fine
But she just sits and counts the hours
Searching for her crime

So what's the use of pressing palms
If you wont keep such love from harm
Its a cruel world
Youve so much to prove

And heaven help the ones
Who wait for you

Well Ive no daughters Ive no sons
Guess Im the only one
Living in my life

Take care my love, he said
Don't think that God is dead
Take care my love, he said
You have been loved

(george michael/david austin)
