I Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way

Every good marriage has a time of testing and trials...ours is no different. 

"Any Other Way"
Jill Phillips

Do you remember that Monday when

The world fell out beneath our feet

Both surprised that we had been

So close to losing everything

Putting one foot in front of the other

felt like such a long, hard step to take

We thought about moving and starting again

But it was something we could never outrun so we just stayed

I wouldn’t have it any other way

I wouldn’t have it any other way


Gaining back the trust we lost

Was harder than just losing it

But if we wanted change at all

The pain was a prerequisite

So little by little, a piece at a time

We were putting back together what was left of a broken life

It wasn’t quick, it wasn’t easy

But that kind of change isn’t one that happens overnight

I wouldn’t have it any other way

I wouldn’t have it any other way


When we first met, love was a feeling

But making it last, that’s a decision

A good decision


When we watch the kids run through the yard

Sometimes I just can’t help but think

That every bit of what it cost

Was worth it for this family

‘cause I wouldn’t have it any other way

I wouldn’t have it any other way

I wouldn’t have it any other way
