Daniel got a divorce in 2004,
It really got him down,
It cost him a house and his whole bank account,
His whole world fell to the ground,
He said, "I had it all but I lost it,
And I can't blame her or the booze.
I'm picking up pieces and going to meetings,
One thing I know is the more that you have,
The more you have to lose."

Sue had it all, was the belle of the ball,
In her small Georgia town.
One perfect smile on one perfect face,
In her eyes, a man could drown.
One night here Mustang flew of the road,
And one more time, she made the news.
She's burned and she's scarred and,
She found out the hard way,
That nothing is perfect and the more that you have,
The more you have to lose.

The car was in pieces, the glass was all shattered,
She was hanging on by a thread,
The doctors all told her a stranger had found her,
Without him, she'd surely be dead.

The stranger came in to room fourteen ten,
To see if she was doin' alright,
She couldn't stand, but he held her hand,
They became friends that night.
Friends became lovers, that's just what happened,
In this miracle of Daniel and Sue,
A brand new start, they just followed their hearts,
And they now know for sure, that the more that you have,
The more you have to lose.
They now know for sure, that the more that you have,
The more you have to lose.
