The fallacy of marriage
I thought when we got married all our problems would just clear up.
I thought when we got married things would be much better.
I thought when we got married things would go back
to those romantic days, when I met her.
But things havenít changed,
in fact, things have only got worse.
And marriage it seems has become
a living curse.
And I keep blaming her,
and she keeps blaming me!
And our marriage counselor keeps blaming
both of us.
But Iím slowly coming to the idea,
that itís me all along.
Iím coming to this idea
as I get more strong.
Iím looking at my life in a different way.
Iím looking at my wife in a different way.
Iím looking at our strife in a different way,
and coming to the understanding that,
ďmarriage is a beautiful thingĒ.
