  • If your life is a record
    People and places are the songs
    There'll be slow and there'll be fast ones
    Lookin' forward, lookin' backwards
    On that tiny two lane town that you call home

    They'll all make sense
    When they're together
    If your life is a record

    I'll be the sad song, your good love gone bad song
    The part of your heart that's bittersweet
    Couldn't be your happy song but at least we had a song
    So I'll be the sad song you sing

    Some night when it's raining
    You're movin' on song's fast asleep
    You pour a glass of something
    And let your heart start running
    To that summer at that bar on Division Street

    That last verse
    You'll wanna change it
    Some night when it's raining

    I'll be the sad song, your good love gone bad song
    The part of your heart that's bittersweet
    Couldn't be your happy song but at least we had a song
    So I'll be the sad song you sing

    If your life is a record
    People and places are the songs

    I'll be your sad song, your what we almost song
    Your what mighta been but wasn't meant to be
    Couldn't be your happy song but at least we had a song
    So I'll be the sad song you sing
    'Cause you'll always be that song to me
