Woke up in the middle of the night and saw you sleepin'
I was hopin' you were dreamin' about me
Kissed your cheek and said "I love you"
You reached for me and then you mumbled
"I love you too, is everything ok?"

I said I'm fine baby, go back to sleep
I've just been thinkin' life is changin' 'round us
And I hope you believe

I'll still be me
Just a normal girl from small town nowhere
I'll still hold your hand and wear this ring
I'll still be me
If you can count on one thing, I'll be here
The same girl that you've known for centuries
I'll still be me

We said we wanted all of this
We made the plans together
And promised that we'd never forget
Drinkin' apple wine in our first kitchen
Throwin' pennies in the well and wishin'
We'd spend our lives forever holdin' hands

And here we are still holdin' on
But if all the pretty things tied up in bows were gone

I'll still be me
Just a normal girl from small town nowhere
I'll still laugh at your jokes and argue over silly things
I'll still be me
If you can count on one thing, I'll be here
The same girl that you've known for centuries
I'll still be me

Empires could rise and fall
The sun could swallow the moon
And I don't hold a crystal ball
But I promise you

I'll still be me
Just a normal girl from small town nowhere
I'll still be the mommy of our babies
I'll still be me
If you can count on one thing, I'll be here
The same girl that you've known for centuries
I'll still be me

    My parents have been married for 60 years, and live in the house that they've raised all 9 of their children, 5 boys, 4 girls. I am the oldest daughter and when i go home i sleep in an adjacent bedroom and i have wonderful memories of their pillow talk through the years that continues to this day. True endearing love between the two of them, you don't see too much today and hard to find. They were married on christmas eve, happy anniversary, mama & daddy! I love you!

    Life goes on, time moves. We adjust and move forward we have the memories behind us. But never forget who you are, never forget the memories, they are you
