SUSAN ACROSS THE OCEAN

I still think about Susan, and all our ups and downs
Never met a woman so resolute, she speaks her mind, stands her ground
Thought we'd go on forever, and I must still be surprised
'Cause I can't forget that sweet look in her eyes

Susan across the ocean
Chose to go so far away
Susan, what does your spirit hide?
That makes me question my life this way
Susan across the ocean
I ain't a slave to nobody
Susan, you don't mean anything
Susan, you're everything to me

I had plans to raise a family; she had plans of her own
Children are so demanding, and she had so much to prove, and places to go
I'm not angry anymore, but it hurts me so bad
When I think of all the sweet times we could have had

Repeat Chorus

Just when you think you know somebody well
When you're completely in love, you can never tell
When it's over
Is it over?

I'm sixty years tomorrow, but I still hold my own
I married a woman whose love I hold, and we had three kids, watched them grow
But when I wake up in the morning, it still hurts me so bad
Because I love this woman beside me,
But I can't help to think about the life I could have had

Repeat Chorus
