Jeff Carson — That Last Mile lyrics

Sometimes I look at you and my heart hurts
I guess when love's this strong that's how it can be
When my time should come to leave this world
I hope the good Lord takes me in my sleep
To have to say goodbye to you would be impossible for me

Chorus
If you should wonder how long I'll stand beside you
Well you know only til the stars forget to shine
Every step I take will be one we take together
Girl forever, til we've walked that last mile
Til we've walked that last mile

Before I met you girl how could I have known
That I'd ever wanna give so much, so endlessly
When silver's in our hair and the years turn gold
Just turn to me and you will see
Someone who with every beat of their heart
Still loves you faithfully

Repeat Chorus

Ooh every step I take will be one we take together
Girl forever, til we've walked that last mile
Til we've walked that last mile
