Lyrics

 My shoulder gives me trouble
And it’s getting way too hard
To throw a ball in earnest
To my dog across the yard
 
And my knees don’t seem to like it
If I ever start to run
I used to do a mile or two
And a couple more for fun
 
But I can still love you
I still can hold you tight
Still reach for you and find you
When I wake up in the night
I know I’m getting old
Not the man that you once knew
But I’m alive
And I can still love you
 
Had a job out at the nursery
Back when you and I were young
There were days I’d plant near a hundred trees
In the blazing summer sun
 
Then I’d come back home and sing to you
Just some song I’d heard that day
But now I cough too much and my voice will crack
You still listen anyway
 
And I can still love you
I still can hold you tight
Still reach for you and find you
When I wake up in the night
I know I’m getting old
Not the man that you once knew
But I’m alive
And I can still love you
 
I can’t move as fast or lift as much
Or work the way I could
But it’s nothing that I miss that much
This life with you is good.
 
I can still love you
I still can hold you tight
Still reach for you and find you
When I wake up in the night
I know I’m getting old
Not the man that you once knew
But I’m alive
And I can still love you
 
Yeh I’m alive
And I can still love you
