When Things Try to Tear You Apart

These bodies can take a quite beating

They make love and heal broken bones

And keep you just fine

Til something inside

The size of a speck starts to grow

 

A friend was a month from his wedding

When he was sat down for the news

Then his wife the nurse

Took him over to church

Said a prayer to the savior they knew

 

Oh sometimes I wonder

If there's a reason life gets so hard

Maybe you find what holds you together

When things try to tear you apart

 

Their wedding was a hell of a party

We all drank and danced all night

And watched and smiled

When he spun her around

And held her body so tight

 

The next day his wife took a razor

Shaved off every hair on his head

Looked at his face

Said I love you just the same

And they wandered swiftly back to bed

 

Oh sometimes I wonder

If there's a reason life gets so hard

Maybe you find what holds you together

When things try to tear you apart

 

There were pillow talks when they couldn’t sleep

And there were tears tracks wiped from their cheeks

Fighting for no reason at all

And a helping hand to pick up every fall

 

Until they were sat down in the waiting room

After six long months had gone by

And they got the news

The cancer reduced

He was gonna be alright

 

And As he started remission

She kissed him on his head

He said he loved her

He was finally cured

Of any doubts he ever had

 

Oh sometimes I wonder

If there's a reason life gets so hard

Maybe you find what holds you together

When things try to tear you apart

 

Maybe you find what holds you together

When things try to tear you apart
