For Tom

For Tom

14 years ago…

We froze outside the courthouse.
“Lifted” some mugs and a menu.
Put on our boots,
and danced to this song

I Swear by John Michael Montgomery
(frank j. myers/gary baker)

I see the questions in your eyes
I know what’s weighing on your mind
That you can be sure I know my heart

`Coz I’ll stand beside you through the years
You’ll only cry those happy tears
And though I make mistakes
I’ll never break your heart

I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky
I’ll be there
I swear like a shadow that’s by your side
I’ll be there

For better or worse, till death do us part
I’ll love you with every beat of my heart
I swear

I’ll give you everything I can
I’ll build your dreams with these two hands
We’ll hang some memories on the walls

And when just the two of us are there
You won’t have to ask if I still care
`Coz as the time turns the page, my love won’t age at all

I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky
I’ll be there
I swear like the shadow that’s by your side
I’ll be there

For better or worse, till death do us part
I’ll love you with every beat of my heart
I swear

I swear by the moon and stars in the sky
I’ll be there
I swear like the shadow that’s by your side
I’ll be there

For better or worse, till death do us part
I’ll love you with every beat of my heart
I swear, I swear

I Love You!
