She had it all, but woke up one day
Find he was walking out with nothing left to say.
Just determined to live a life without her.

He left a note she couldn’t read
Blinded by tears, she felt she couldn’t breathe.
As she pondered she wondered what to do.

All I could say was
Give it just a little while, just a little while,
Things will get better.
Give it just a little while, just a little while,
The angels will do their thing.
Just a little while, just a little while,
You’ll feel like smiling again.

She cried the tears, picked up a laugh,
Still had to be a mother while she was not his wife.
As the years passed she prayed and asked and he answered.

And all I can say is
It’s only been a little while, just a little while
And it’s already better.
It’s only been a little while, just a little while,
See, the angels are doing their thing.
It’s been a little while, just a little while.

He may never apologize for the pain and broken heart,
But she’ll always remember how she loved him
And so the day she forgives him.

Now that she’s old she chooses to say
That she will not complain, but thank God for everything.
Now her kids are grown and went on their own, but makes her happy.
And deep in her heart she still thinks of him,
She wonders how he is and does he love her, still
In a simple way, she’s rebuild a life that’s lovely.

I just remind her,
I know it’s been a little while, just a little while,
But things sure got better.
I know it’s been a little while, just a little while,
The angels did their thing.
It’s been a little while and we’re all so much better.
I know it’s been a little while, just a little while,
But it’s good to see you smile
