Marty Robbins – Story Of My Life Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Someday I’m gonna write, the story of my life
I’ll tell about the night we met
And how my heart can’t forget
The way, you smiled, at me

[Verse 2]
I want the world to know, the story of my life
The moment when your lips met mine
And that first exciting time
I held, you close, to me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
The sorrow when our love was breaking up
The memory of a broken heart
Then later on the joy of making up
Never, never more to part

[Chorus 2]
There’s a one thing left to do, before my story’s through
I’ve got to take you for my wife
So the story of my life
Can start, and end, with you

[Pre-Chorus 2]
The sorrow when our love was breaking up
The memory of a broken heart
Then later on the joy of making up
Never, never more to part

[Chorus 2]
There’s a one thing left to do, before my story’s through
I’ve got to take you for my wife
So the story of my life
Can start, and end, can start, and end, can start, and end, with you
