  • Look at us
    Two Sugar Land kids looking all grown up
    The same ones that were too young to stay in love
    But here we are, so good so far
    Hey, baby, look at us
    Sleeping on a mattress on the floor
    When we got what we got, we don't need nothing more
    What a life, what a love, look at us

    From, "Hey, can I get your number?"
    To, "Whatcha doin' Friday night?"
    Straight through a teenage summer
    To goin' on our fifth July
    From porch lights and swingin' on swings
    To real life doin' its thing
    From some silly seventeen fling
    To tryin' on rings

    Look at you
    Lookin' at me like you always have
    Lookin' for the ways to make me laugh
    And just like that, it takes me back
    Boy, right back

    To, "Hey, can I get your number?"
    To, "Whatcha doin' Friday night?"
    Straight through a teenage summer
    To goin' on our fifth July
    From porch lights and swingin' on swings
    To real life doin' its thing
    From some silly seventeen fling
    To tryin' on rings

    From the close calls and almost walking out the door
    To runnin' so fast, straight back to the thing worth fighting for

    It all started with a, "Hey, can I get your number?"
    To, "Whatcha doin' Friday night?"
    Straight through a teenage summer
    To goin' on our fifth July
    From not knowing what it all means
    When real life is doin' its thing
    From some silly seventeen fling
    To tryin' on rings
