When we were young we played together
That's the way our love began
Now you're gone dear with another
Now you're no more than just a friend

Sixteen years we were married
I remember the day that we were wed
Sixteen years is a mighty long time
Now you're gone I'm losin my mind

Now the days are long and the nights are lonesome
It seems like years have past and gone
I didn't know you were unhappy
I didn't know anything was wrong
