Hoping for a new beginning
To take me away from my surroundings
So I can finally say goodbye
Wondering what'll become of us
When we are all old and gray
And this time that we've spent together
Was well worth our wait
Think of the fun that we had
Not caring until the next morning
It feels so good to go through life
With your eyes half open

We are all one and the same
We are lovers, and brothers, and sisters
And most of all friends

These years have passed us by so fast
It seems like we never got the chance
To realize how good life really was
And let the moment last
And it feels like it was only yesterday
When we walked into this place
And said I can't wait till I get out of here
And now as we walk down this aisle
With four years all rolled up in a scroll, you can't help but think
Hey, Where did the time go

We are all one and the same
We are lovers, and brothers, and sisters
And most of all friends
Hold on to your memories
Hold on to those little things
And I hope you receive as much as you get
Cause when you die they're the only things
That you can take to your grave

These are the days of your life
And don't let them pass you by
Cause you never know when you might take your last breath
And so take a deep one tonight

Good friends we had along the way
And good friends that didn't make it to where we stand today
But we all know that they're looking down on us
And even though their lives were cut short
We still remember the little thing that made us laugh about them
And do you remember when and where did you meet them?

We are all one and the same
We are lovers, and brothers, and sisters
And most of all friends
Hold on to your memories
Hold on to those little things
And I hope you receive as much as you get
Cause when you die they're the only things
That you can take to your grave

And as we approach this final day
Where we all will go our separate ways
So go hug and kiss your friends
And say goodbye to them
