I Can Still Love You

03:35

Lyrics

 My shoulder gives me trouble

And it’s getting way too hard

To throw a ball in earnest

To my dog across the yard

 

And my knees don’t seem to like it

If I ever start to run

I used to do a mile or two

And a couple more for fun

 

But I can still love you

I still can hold you tight

Still reach for you and find you

When I wake up in the night

I know I’m getting old

Not the man that you once knew

But I’m alive

And I can still love you

 

Had a job out at the nursery

Back when you and I were young

There were days I’d plant near a hundred trees

In the blazing summer sun

 

Then I’d come back home and sing to you

Just some song I’d heard that day

But now I cough too much and my voice will crack

You still listen anyway

 

And I can still love you

I still can hold you tight

Still reach for you and find you

When I wake up in the night

I know I’m getting old

Not the man that you once knew

But I’m alive

And I can still love you

 

I can’t move as fast or lift as much

Or work the way I could

But it’s nothing that I miss that much

This life with you is good.

 

I can still love you

I still can hold you tight

Still reach for you and find you

When I wake up in the night

I know I’m getting old

Not the man that you once knew

But I’m alive

And I can still love you

 

Yeh I’m alive

And I can still love you
