15 years together
We climbed by work and will
From a simple two room cottage
to a mansion on the hill
Now there's rose in the garden
But it's the coldest place in town
It took 15 years, goin' up
And one night comin' down

15 years of heaven
For one short night of sin
From blue skies forever
To an end
From out on a mountain
To both knees on the ground
15 years, goin' up
And one night comin' down

Her dreams have all been shattered
Her faith in my is gone
My tears tell her I'm sorry
But they can't write my wrong
One night wrote my story
How a man can lose it all
After 15 years goin' up
It's hard to take a fall

15 years of heaven
For one short night of sin
From blue skies forever
To an end
From out on a mountain
To both knees on the ground
15 years, goin' up
And one night comin' down

I've been, 15 years goin' up
And one night comin' down
