Didn't they always say, we were the lucky ones
I guess that we were once
Babe we were once
But luck we leave you 'cause it is a faithless friend
And in the end
When life has got you down
You've got someone here you can wrap your arms around

So hold on to me tight
Hold on to me tonight
We are stronger here together
Then we could ever be alone
So hold on to me
Don't you ever let me go

There's a thousand ways for things to fall apart
But it's no one's fault
No, it's not my fault
And baby all the plans we made were not worked out
But I have no doubt even though it's hard to see
I've got faith in us
And I believe in you and me

So hold on to me tight
Hold on I promise it will be alright
'Cause it's you and me together
And baby all we've got is time
So hold on to me
Hold on to me tonight

And there's so many dreams that we have given up
Take a look at all we've got
And with this kind of love
What we've got here is enough

So hold on to me tight
Hold on I promise it will be alright
'Cause were stronger here together
Then we could ever be alone
Just hold on to me
Don't you ever let me go
Hold on to me it's going to be alright
Hold on to me tonight

They always say
That we're the lucky ones

    I think this song talks about a friendship of a guy & a girl that initially became something more than a friendship for a period of time. But it didnt go quite according to plan so they decided to call it a day & thought best just to stay as close friends. I think what michael buble is trying to put across in this song is that sometimes things dont quite go according to plan and its probably for the best. But tje primary point that is put across is that no matter how things have worked out between you & your friend, know that they will always hold a special place in their hearts of those good times you speny together when you were more than friends and that they will always be there to pick you up & comfort you to the best of their ability because, deep down, they still care & love you as much as they did when you were extremely close.

    This song makes me think of my show choir students. They did this as their ballad this season, and it was beautiful! By the way, while on this website, i've realized something. Grammar and spelling are important skills that a lot of people are lacking to a frightful extent. Sorry, i derailed. So the bottom line is my kids rock, and we love bubbles.
