Don’t Let My Love Escape You


It slipped through your skin when you were just fourteen
On your backyard trampoline, I asked you to go with me
And with time and patience, a little family grew
When one day we brought home a little me and you

CHORUS
Don’t let my love escape you
Keep it safe, keep it close
Don’t let my love escape you
It’ll bend as we grow old
Don’t let my love escape you
We’re only here a little while
Don’t let my love escape you
It’s yours ‘til your last mile

People grow up, people change
On the long road to truth, nobody stays the same
So if your hand slips from mine, I’ll always know that I
Was a better man for knowing you

CHORUS 2
Don’t let my love escape you
Hold it close like a child
Don’t let my love escape you
May our roots run deep and wild
Don’t let my love escape you
Anytime, anywhere
Don’t let my love escape you
This is my prayer

When I leave this world, I will not be alone
I’ll take your love with me wherever I shall go
When I think of you, I’ll look back and smile
Grateful for the gift, if only for a while
