Seventeen months in the blink of an eye
Got a brand-new apartment and a dog named Spy
Got a car that don't work and a job I don't like
But I'm pretty sure I love my wife
I know you wish that we were richer
I know that this ain't what you pictured
But I'm running out of tricks
And I'm not one to walk away
Never back down from anything, but
Baby, the signs aren't hard to miss
So let's just call this love the way it is, the way it is
Twenty-eight years in the blink of an eye
Raised a couple good kids, drank a lot of good wine
And I really want to travel but she hates to fly
And I'm not sure I love my wife
I know that you've been so confronted
I know that this ain't what you wanted
But baby, I'm doing the best I can
And I ain't one to walk away
I've never backed down from anything, but
Baby, we need a better plan
So let's just call it love while we can, while we can
Fifty-eight years in the blink of an eye
Now our kids have kids and we're always tired
And it doesn't really matter if I love my wife
Because she's still with me after all this time
I know it isn't always perfect
No, it doesn't always work, but baby
Be glad there's no surprise
And I ain't one to walk away
Never backed down from anything, but
Baby, I didn't want to try, so
Let's just call it love without the lies
Let's just call it love until it dies, let's just call it love
