I'll Always Be Grateful (A House)

Nine long months you've spent thinking of me And all the following years Spent between the laughter and tears Self-denial you gave, too good to shout it out loud There's a second love, but blood is thicker than skin I'll always be grateful I'll always be grateful I'll always be grateful For you And the man's done his best with those old-fashioned ways And I know you've tried hard, I can see it in your face If I had of known then what I could have known now I hate to patronize and even more I hate to criticize (Chorus) I must be painfully dull to do what I have done By not showing love to those people that I love But, still you accept what I've done proving time and time again That someday I realize, but by then it's all too late (Chorus) And I'll never be hateful
