  • We cut the cake everybody danced
    And some people drank too much
    You looked like the cover of Brides magazine
    And I looked like some guy in a tux
    I'll never forget when your Uncle Bill
    Pulled up a chair and sat down
    He said son I've been married now
    Forty five years and pointed at you through the crowd
    And said

    Love her like she's leaving
    Like it's all going to end if you don't
    Love her like she's leaving
    Oh and I guarantee she won't

    He said it's sending her flowers for no reason
    At all and notes on the fridge every day
    An unexpected gift at an unexpected time
    That keeps the lawyers away

    And it's easy to take forever for granted
    With tin cans tied to your car
    And I know she tells you that she'll always be there
    But I'm telling you if you're smart

    You'll love her like she's leaving
    Like it's all going to end if you don't
    Love her like she's leaving
    Oh and I guarantee she won't

    She could have any man she wants, you know it's true
    Best way to keep her is to keep her wanting you

    Love her like she's leaving
    Oh and I guarantee she won't
    Yeah I guarantee she won't
    Love her like she's leaving
    Oh and I guarantee she won't Writer/s: ASHLEY GLENN GORLEY, ASHLEY GORLEY, BRAD DOUGLAS PAISLEY, CHRIS DUBOIS
