Lyrics

VERSE
He left her love letters on her pillow
She inspired him to write
I heard them whisper soft, “I love you” Down the hall each night
And she would place her hand in his back pocket
And she’d fix his crooked ties
They never hid the candle of their love From their daughters' eyes

CHORUS
I used to roll my eyes and shake my head My face would turn lipstick red
But older makes you wiser
And someday when I fall
I’m prayin’ for a love just like
The couple down the hall

VERSE
The TV tells me that my generation Demands too much and quits too soon
And all we care about when we get married
Is the honeymoon

CHORUS
Well I just roll my eyes and shake my head
My face is turning lipstick red
'Cause older made me wiser
And someday when I fall
I’m prayin’ for a love just like
The couple down the hall

BRIDGE
When I lose my faith in love that’s lasting My beacon’s always near
Daddy still leaves letters on her pillow
After all these years

CHORUS
And to think -
I used to roll my eyes and shake my head My face would turn lipstick red
But older made me wiser
And someday when I fall
I’m prayin’ for a love just like
The couple down the hall
