about

I've never written many love songs and I've never been very confident about this one. However, the sentiment is sincere and I like the recording.

lyrics

Spend my life with you
Lyrics & Music ©2003 Derek A. Shacklett

I may have told you
That I would always take out the trash
You might have got the notion
That we would never want for cash
It’s not that I mislead you
That was never my intention
I know that I have let you down
In more ways than really need mention
(chorus)
Of all the things I’ve ever said
Of the dreams I’ve ever dreamt
I hope that more than one are true
Of all the promises I’ve made
All the plans I’ve ever laid
I hope to spend my life with you

I know I don’t deserve you
And what a lucky man I am
So I thank my lucky stars at night
And just keep trying the best I can
To be a man who is worthy
Of the love I have felt in your touch
The world is good when you hold me
I want to always need you this much

(chorus)
(bridge)
Now I am sure it won’t always be easy
And I am sure it will be so hard sometimes
But I will promise that if you’ll have me
I’ll take your hand and hold on tight...
(chorus)
