I once held that someone special, didn't have to let her go
I just stood back and watched my future pass
And for the awful shape I'm in I can only blame myself
It's no wonder that her love for me wasn't strong enough to last.

Poor it on for all it's worth through all that we got lived
And for what it's worth we've been less than easy on ourself
If we could write a book they could'nt keep it on the shelf
We're just tryin' to get it right with all that we've got left.

I was there when the bar room opened, I've been there at closin' time
There were things I couldn't handle by myself
Then the right one picked me up and we left it all behind
She said I'm all she'll ever need and for me there's no one else

Poor it on for all it's worth through all that we got lived
And for what it's worth we've been less than easy on ourself
If we could write a book they could'nt keep it on the shelf
We're just tryin' to get it right with all that we've got left.

We're just tryin' to get it right with all that we've got left...
