lyrics

Another week starts
Another broken heart
Guess that's how the story goes
The laughter and the cheer
The omnipresent tears
We all get knocked down
But we keep on dancing

Long ago we dreamed of settling down
And thought that happiness would follow in stride
Now I wonder how we could have been so long

So let's grab a sixer on a Saturday night
And we'll speculate about the meaning of life
And celebrate the fact that we're still alive
Let it be known that we were here
The good times are here and then gone
But we still have to keep moving on
So we'll hold our heads up high
While singing along
That I was here with you

The unexpected smiles
The errors and the trials
It's par for the course it seems
The sacred and profane
The blindingly mundane
When things fall apart
We'll put them back together

The plot lines always thicken and cross
But the heroes will stay the course
They have each other at the end of the day

So let's grab a sixer on a Saturday night
And we'll speculate about the meaning of life
And celebrate the fact that we're still alive
Let it be known that we were here
The good times are here and then gone
But we still have to keep moving on
So we'll hold our heads up high
While singing along
That I was here with you

The things we take in stride
The bumps along the ride
We've all heard this tale before
The ones who hold my hand
The ones who understand
I'm never alone
With you here beside me

[1, 2, 3, 4!]

So let's grab a sixer on a Saturday night
And we'll speculate about the meaning of life
And celebrate the fact that we're still alive
Let it be known that we were here
The good times are here and then gone
But we still have to keep moving on
So we'll hold our heads up high
While singing along
That I was here with you
