She said that I would know her by the ribbon in her hair
And as the stoplight took its time, I tried hard not to stare
Third and main had never looked so beautiful to me
On that crowded corner, she was all that I could see
She gave me a smile that wouldn’t quit
And as I took her hand I knew this was it

CHORUS
It hit me hard
It took my breath away
It hit me hard
My whole world had changed
Now my heart was beating
Now my life had meaning
It hit me all at once
It hit me hard

She had a glow about her like the ring around the moon
And kissed our baby’s forehead as I walked into the room
I saw her for the first time as more than just my wife
She was the mother of my child, the love of my life
She gave me a smile that wouldn’t quit
And as I took her hand I knew this was it

REPEAT CHORUS

Her tired eyes were fading like a candle burning down
I touched her face, and stroked her hair, and
Smoothed her cotton gown
Tried to say she’s everything that makes my life good
The words stuck in my throat but I know she understood
She gave me a smile that wouldn’t quit
And as I took her hand I knew this was it

CHORUS
It hit me hard
Took my breath away
It hit me hard
My whole world had changed
Though my heart’s still beating
She gave my life its meaning
It hit me all at once
It hit me hard it hit me all at once…
