be there with you

remember when we kissed

some awful good times

and then the ones like this...

 

<solo>

 

well you sure

stuck with me, girl

some bad times, they did too

 

and i wonder

if you'd forgive me

for all that stuff i did

 

and i wonder

if someday

you might think of me

 

and if you do

i hope you'd say yes,

one last imagined gift...

i hope you'll - join me.
