She needs me now but I can't seem to find the timeI got a new job now on the unemployment line and we don't know howHow we got into this mess, is it God's test? Someone help us 'cause we're doing our bestTrying to make things work, but, man, these times are hard
But we're gonna stop by drinking our cheap bottles of wineSit talking up all night, saying things we haven't for a while, a while, yeahWe're smiling but we're close to tears, even after all these yearsWe just now got the feeling that we're meeting for the first time
