  • We both dreamed a white fence
    Would wrap our front yard
    How my arms have held you all these years
    Now I wake in the morning
    And roll to find you
    Damn you, sunshine and the shadows you make

    If you don't love me anymore
    If you don't love, you don't love me anymore
    I'm gonna go out knowing I tried. Persistent
    If you don't want me anymore
    If you don't want, you don't want me anymore
    Persistence so I know I tried
    I did my best now I must survive and

    Keep pushing on
    Pushing on
    Keep pushing on
    Pushing on

    I had a daughter as tall as I am
    In my sleep I see the craziest things
    Over her shoulder I saw you smiling
    Now I don't want to wake up and it fades

    If you don't love me anymore
    If you don't love, you don't love me anymore
    I'm gonna go out knowing I tried. Persistent
    If you don't want me anymore
    If you don't want, you don't want me anymore
    Persistence so I know I tried
    I did my best now I must survive and

    Keep pushing on
    Pushing on
    Keep pushing on
    Pushing on

    When I'd swim in the ocean (I'd miss your skin)
    So fair the summer would burn it
    When I'd hike up a mountain (I'd miss your smile)
    You'd love the view from the top of it
    I would be reminded every day
    I would be reminded every day
    Of my shame

    If you don't love me anymore
    If you don't love, you don't love me anymore
    I'm gonna go out knowing I tried. Persistent
    If you don't want me anymore
    If you don't want, you don't want me anymore
    Persistent so I know I tried
    I did my best now I must survive

    If you don't love me anymore
    If you don't love, you don't love me anymore
    Persistence so I know I tried
    I did my best now I must survive and

    Keep pushing on
    Pushing on
    Pushing on
    Pushing on

    Pushing on! Publisher: NFG SONGS
