Story behind the song
I have played music at many weddings but was not aware of songs specifically about people entering into a second (or more) marriage. So, I decided to write one. This story is about a couple who both have children from previous marriages and are moving into their older years.
Lyrics
This time, when I went over the paperwork and licenses I didn’t know where to sign ‘til I put on my reading glasses If I ever was more in love, I can’t remember But then again, it might just be early-onset Alzheimer’s I’ve been down this road before and tossed aside But I couldn’t dream of a better companion for the end of my ride If at first you don’t succeed Try, try again Sometimes the book is hard to read But don’t put it down until the end Because the author of our lives Has quite a sense of humor But I’m grateful that in the final pages He has joined us together Between your kids and mine we’re a regular Brady bunch If they all go to college, there’ll be some serious numbers to crunch I swore I’d never, never ever get married again But here we are today gathered with family and friends I thought my heart was hopelessly shattered But you patiently helped me piece it back together If at first you don’t succeed, etc… This time around some of our loved ones are gone And this time around some of the young ones have kids of their own But I can feel everybody’s blessing from right here and from beyond And I know that with you forever is where I belong If at first you don’t succeed, etc… If at first you don’t succeed Try, try again I finally have everything I need You’re my lover and my best friend Yes, the author of our lives Sure has quite a sense of humor But I’m grateful for his final pages Oh, I thank God for, in the final pages He has joined us together
