The Rest of Our Life

Album: The Rest of Our Life (2017)
  • Sitting with you in a dark room
    Warm by a fireplace
    You know there's just something about you
    You brighten my day
    I got something to run past you
    I just hope i say it right
    So I take your hand and ask you
    Have you made plans for the rest of your life?

    There's one thing I should be giving up, giving up now
    And that's worryin' about life
    Oh, I'll be fine
    If one gray hair shows, I'll be fine
    If my waistline grows, I'll be fine
    Even if time takes its toll
    We'll stay young for the rest of our lives

    I've been making plans for children
    Since I've been looking in your eyes
    I even have names picked out for them
    Daughter; it'd be Rose
    Son; it'd be Ryan

    There's one thing I should be giving up, giving up now
    And that's worrying about life
    Oh, I'll be fine
    If one gray hair shows, I'll be fine
    If my waistline goes, I'll be fine
    Even if time takes its toll
    We'll stay young for the rest of our lives

    I don't really care about those storm clouds brewing
    Oh, as long as you're here by my side
    Oh, we'll be young, oh we'll be young
    Oh, we'll be young, when we're old

    Oh, I'll be fine
    If my gray hair shows, I'll be fine
    If my waistline grows, I'll be fine
    Even when time takes its toll
    I'll stay young for the rest of my life
    With you, I'll stay young for the rest of my life
    With you
    We'll stay young for the rest of our life
