Lord knows we've got everything we need
A two-story house, cars and diamond rings
So pretending to be happy ain't so bad
We're just makin' the most of what we don't have

All our friends think we're the couple of the year
But they only see the smiles and not the tears

If they only knew the truth, they'd be so sad
We're just makin' the most of what we don't have

If we could we'd go back to the start
And never lose the love that filled our hearts
Until we find a way to get it back
We're just makin' the most of what we don't have

All our friends think we're the couple of the year
But they only see the smiles and not the tears

If they only knew the truth, they'd be so sad
We're just makin' the most of what we don't have

Our favorite song is "It's Not Love But It's Not Bad"
We're just makin' the most of what we don't have
