Tidal Wave

from The Bellevue Years

For thirty two years he's been married
Unhappy for the last eighteen
Living with a woman who gives him no love
Makes a man grumpy, makes him mean
But then, he met her
And now things have changed
His life will never be the same
'Cause it's hit him like a tidal wave
Like a hurricane
Like a tornado whirling around
When a man falls in love after so many years
It's hard to keep his feet on the ground

Twenty years ago she got married
Ten years ago divorced
Looking ever since for a good kind man
Never expecting to find one of course
But then she met him
And now things have changed
Her life will never be the same
'Cause it's hit her like a tidal wave
Like a hurricane
Like a tornado whirling around
When a woman falls in love after so many years
It's hard to keep her feet on the ground

Some people think if you don't find love when you're young you're out of luck
But good things come to those who wait, so now don't you dare give up

You're never too old for a romance
It's never too late to start
You'll be surprised how many takers there could be
If you would just hold out your heart
And let the love shine through
No one will believe the changes in you
When it's hits you like a tidal wave
Like a hurricane
Like a tornado whirling around
When you fall in love after so many years
It's hard to keep your feet on the ground

When you fall in love after so many years
It's impossible to keep your feet on the ground
