Forever After All

Album: What You See Ain't Always What You Get (2020)
Charted: 2
  • A cold beer's got 12 ounces
    A good truck's got maybe three hundred thousand
    You only get so much until it's gone
    Duracells in a Maglite
    A needle drop on a 45
    Are the kinda things that only last so long
    When the new wears off, and they get to getting old
    Sooner or later, time's gonna take its toll

    They say nothing lasts forever
    But they ain't seen us together
    Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes
    Just a t-shirt in the kitchen
    With no make-up and a million
    Other things that I could look at my whole life
    A love like that makes a man have second thoughts
    Maybe some things last forever after all

    FM station on the outskirts
    Blue jeans after years of shift work
    All fading out like I always knew they would
    The strings on this guitar
    The first love lost on a young heart
    Those things are gonna break after the getting's good
    'Cause the new wears off, and they get to getting old
    Yeah, sooner or later, time's gonna take its toll

    They say nothing lasts forever
    But they ain't seen us together
    Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes
    Just a t-shirt in the kitchen
    With no make-up and a million
    Other things that I could look at my whole life
    A love like that makes a man have second thoughts
    Maybe some things last forever after all

    They say nothing lasts forever
    But they ain't seen us together
    Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes
    And I know there'll be that moment
    The good Lord calls one of us home and
    One won't have the other by their side
    But heaven knows that that won't last too long
    Maybe some things last forever after all
