​Love, Me

This song is by InsideOut and appears on the album Experience (2000).

I read a note my grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me
He said, now son, you might not understand,
But a long, long time ago
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none,
But I loved your grandma so

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet, instead
I found this letter, and this is what it said

If you get there before I do, don't give up on me
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be,
But I'm not gonna let you down, darling wait and see
'Cause between now and then till I see you again
I'll be loving you
Love, me

I read these words just hours before
My grandma passed away,
In the doorway of the church where me and grandpa
Stopped to pray
I know I'd never seen him cry, in all my fifteen years
But as he said these words to her,
His eyes filled up with tears:
