  • Maybe we got a ways to go, a lot of road ahead of us
    And who really knows how many songs we got left in us
    And so it goes, curtains'll close
    Whatever's next after the show
    Just for now play it loud, let the sound deafen us

    We got time but we're only human
    We call it forever but we know that there's an end to it
    You and I can dance our way through it
    And I'll love you 'til all that we are is background music

    Maybe all we'll ever be to them in a hundred years
    Is three minutes in a car, in a bar, that says we were here
    If that's you and me when it's all said and done
    Hard not to see we're the lucky ones
    Not everybody gets to leave a souvenir

    We got time but we're only human
    We call it forever but we know that there's an end to it
    You and I can dance our way through it
    And I'll love you 'til all that we are is background music

    Oh

    We got time but we're only human
    We call it forever but we know that there's an end to it
    You and I can dance our way through it
    And I'll love you 'til all that we are
    And I'll love you 'til all that we are is background music, ooh Writer/s: Jimmy Robbins, Laura Jeanne Veltz, Maren Morris
