Lyrics

The One We Couldn't Lose

Well it seems so far away, we were two boys out to play
Under conker trees we found our world of fun
We both fought like brothers do, but we were bonded through and through
But we couldn't know the paths our lives would take

And when the leaves all turn to gold our thoughts will turn to you
You were the one we'd always choose, you were the one we couldn't lose

Well, it seems like yesterday, when our world was simple play
And we travelled through the passages of time
We both married, loved and lost - found the time to count the cost
But we were always there for each other come what may

And when the leaves all turn to gold our thoughts will turn to you
You were the one we'd always choose, you were the one we couldn't lose

We had spoken on the phone, you knew you'd never make old bones
But we weren't prepared for you to leave so soon
You had brightened all our lives with your positives and drive
And the gifts you gave are forever afternoon

And when the leaves all turn to gold our thoughts will turn to you
You were the one we'd always choose, you were the one we couldn't lose

And though we make a thousand friends there's no-one quite like you
You are the one we'd always choose
You are the one we couldn't lose
You are the one we couldn't lose
