  • I was living my life
    Like a long lost weekend
    Never felt nothing, jumping right into the deep end
    I wasn't missing nothing
    That was ever worth getting
    Never hung around enough to regret it

    You came walking in late but just in time
    You ended my excuses
    With a ten-cent rhyme
    Shoes and attitude were stacked way up high
    I knew right then you were
    The story of my life

    Oh Saturday night gave me Sunday morning
    Opened my eyes, now it's a new day dawning
    I think I might have pushed my luck a time or two
    Everything about us is what gets me through
    I never thought I'd hear the church bells ringing
    I never learned the song this heart was singing
    No regrets, I took that step, yeah, I'm still falling
    Saturday nights gave me Sunday morning, yeah

    When you're driving down a street that's only going one way
    Every day starts feeling like a month of Mondays
    You should know I still got something left to prove
    I know what it takes to get back to you

    Oh Saturday night gave me Sunday morning
    Opened my eyes, now it's a new day dawning
    I think I might have pushed my luck a time or two
    Everything about us is what gets me through
    I never thought I'd hear the church bells ringing
    I never learned the song was hard for singing
    No regrets, I took the step and I'm still falling
    Saturday nights gave me Sunday morning, yeah

    Remember those nights staring out at the lights
    Making time with our feet in the sand
    Making up words to our favourite songs
    Laughing loud with those drinks in our hands
    And as that boy put his head on her shoulder
    She pulled him tight to get a bit closer
    And as the world just disappeared
    You whispered in my ear

    Oh those Saturday night gave me Sunday morning
    Opened my eyes, now it's a new day dawning
    I think I might have pushed my luck a time or two
    Everything about us is what gets me through
    I never thought I'd hear the church bells ringing
    I never learned the song was hard for singing
    No regrets, I took the step and I'm still falling
    Saturday nights gave me Sunday morning, yeah
