Mine



You were in college working part time waitiní tablesLeft a small town, never looked backI was a flight risk with a fear of falliníWondering why we bother with love if it never lasts
> I say "Can you believe it?"As weíre lying on the couchThe moment, I can see it.Yes, yes, I can see it now
Do you remember, we were sitting there, by the water?You put your arm around me for the first timeYou made a rebel of a careless manís careful daughterYou are the best thing thatís ever been mine
Flash forward and weíre taking on the world togetherAnd thereís a drawer of my things at your placeYou learn my secrets and you figure out why Iím guardedYou say weíll never make my parentsí mistakes
But we got bills to payWe got nothing figured outWhen it was hard to takeYes, yes, I thought about
Do you remember, we were sitting there, by the water?You put your arm around me for the first timeYou made a rebel of a careless manís careful daughterYou are the best thing thatís ever been mine
Do you remember all the city lights on the water?You saw me start to believe for the first timeYou made a rebel of a careless manís careful daughterYou are the best thing thatís ever been mine
Oh, oh, oh
And I remember that fightTwo-thirty AMYes, everything was slipping right out of our handsI ran out crying and you followed me out into the streetBraced myself for the goodbyeĎcause thatís all Iíve ever knownAnd you took me by surpriseYou said, "Iíll never leave you alone"
You said, "I remember how we felt sitting by the waterAnd every time I look at you, itís like the first timeI fell in love with a careless manís careful daughterShe is the best thing thatís ever been mine"
You made a rebel of a careless manís careful daughterYou are the best thing thatís ever been mineDo you believe it?Going to make it nowI can see itI can see it now
