You're Half Her Age (She's Twice the Woman)

Updated on May 3, 2020

She was once half her age
She still turns heads like you do now
But I know how she turned out too
And I won’t be leaving her anyhow

She’s seen so many sunsets
Now they all live in her mind
There’s life in all those colors
They’re the ones only I can find

You’re not gonna’ make me leave her
There’s no way, there’s no how
I remember how beautiful she was
And she’s twice the woman now

I’m not being sentimental
I just know what I want now
She’s real, not young or old
I won’t leave her, no way no how

You have no idea how to live your life
She is so much more than someone’s wife
She lived alone, lived with all the pain
One day I found her ready to live again

You might be half her age
But she’s twice the woman you’ll ever be
And I wonder if you get that
When you see her walking with me
And when she’s not home
My eyes are on the memories only I can see

You’re not gonna’ make me leave her
There’s no way, there’s no how
I remember how beautiful she was
And she’s twice all that now

You can’t take me
Not away, not anywhere
I know why, I finally know why
It’s finally here, not somewhere
Not somewhere, out there

She sleeps well tonight
Knowing her dreams are guarded
She does not have to run and hide
From the past I’ve already discarded

      Thank you Brenda. I've met one that inspired this. It's true. Too many men fall for just the pretty face. You can have that and MUCH MORE if you can handle it.

      Wonderful writing.

      It is great to hear a man understand the true value of a woman.

      To realize the one who is half her age cannot hold a candle to her.

      Thank you Beth! I have a friend who can sing and play the guitar. I'm hoping he'll do something with this.

      Oh, I like this! Romantic and earnest, would make ideal lyrics for a song.
