Oh, Catherine ©David R. Field 2001



Chorus
   Oh, Catherine, love of mine, with all that we've been through,
   Between the fights and life's delights, I'll always treasure you.

That day we met upon the river, I knew I'd found a friend.
We seemed to share so many things, itís hard to comprehend
That loving shared, and working hard on flexibility
Won't overcome our basic incompatibility. 

(CHORUS)

We learned a lot about each other, like what we could not do
To make each other happy in a love we thought was true.
We sacrificed and compromised, and lived under the strain,
The glimpse of joy was clouded by the anger and the pain. 

(CHORUS)

You couldn't feel the love I showed; I couldn't back away.
You couldn't let me finish if I had something to say.
I couldn't make things clean enough; you never were around.
Soon all we saw were differences, instead of common ground.

INSTRUMENTAL

When you left it broke my heart. I thought you were "the one".
But if you stayed, I realize, we both would be undone.
So in the end, you chose a path that's different from mine.
I'll always love you as a friend until the end of time. 

Oh, Catherine, love of mine, no matter what you do,
Between the fights and life's delights, I'll always treasure you.
I'll always treasure  you.
