lyrics

He can't forget the way that she looked that day
Prettiest thing he'd ever seen in his life
He took that photograph and she tried not to laugh
He knew he wanted her to be his wife
They walked for hours hand in hand along the beach
And he could feel the sand move beneath his feet

He started falling into the river of loving
Leaping into the torrent, swept away on the current
Dashed against the rocks of emotion, swept out into the ocean
By a vision of her

He can't forget the dress she wore the day that she said "Yes"
The way she smiled and took him by the hand
And in a golden haze, remembering their wedding day
The preacher's words, the church, and two gold bands
And when he woke up in the early morning light
And saw the vision that was lying by his side

He started falling into the river of loving
Leaping into the torrent, swept away on the current
Dashed against the rocks of emotion, swept out into the ocean
By a vision of her

They're bound together now for richer or for poor
The family photos gather in the dresser drawer

He can't forget the way that she looked the day
The doctor said "There's nothing we can do"
She smiled and took his hand, and said "I understand.
The good Lord will look after all of you"
And though she's gone he still love's her just the same
Staring with devotion at a picture in a frame

He started falling into the river of loving
Leaping into the torrent, swept away on the current
Dashed against the rocks of emotion, swept out into the ocean
By a vision of her

He can't forget the way that she looked that day
Prettiest thing he'd ever seen in his life.
