  • He said to lose my life or lose my love
    That's the nightmare I've been running from
    So let me hold you in my arms a while
    I was always careless as a child

    And there's a part of me that still believes
    My soul will soar above the trees
    But a desperate fear flows through my blood
    That a dead love's buried beneath the mud

    Let's grow old together and die at the same time
    Let's grow old together and die at the same time

    I said I've got no time, I have to go
    And I was more right than I will ever know
    He said my heart is faded, well mine's regret
    And left him crying next to the chapel steps

    Let's grow old together and die at the same time
    Let's grow old together and die at the same time
    He said, let's grow old together and die at the same time
    Let's grow old together and die at the same time
    He said

    He said to lose my life or lose my love
    That's the nightmare I've been running from
    So let me hold you in my arms a while (let's grow old together and die at the same time)
    I was always careless as a child

    There's a part of me that still believes (let's grow old together and die at the same time)
    My soul will soar above the trees
    A desperate fear flows through my blood (he said, let's grow old together and die at the same time)
    A dead love's buried beneath the mud

    A desperate fear flows through my blood (let's grow old together and die at the same time)
    A dead love's buried beneath the mud Writer/s: CHARLES CAVE, HARRY MCVEIGH, JACK BROWN
