She's all laid up in bed with a broken heart,
While I'm drinking jack all alone in my local bar,
And we don't know how,
How we got into this mad situation,
Only doing things out of frustration,
Trying to make it work but man these times are hard,

She needs me now but I can't seem to find the time,
I've got a new job now on the unemployment line,
And we don't know how,
How we got into this mess is this a gods test?
Someone help us cause we're doing our best (best)
Trying to make it work but man these times are hard

But we're gonna start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying things we haven't for a while
A while ya
We're smiling but we're close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we're meeting for the first time

Oooooo
[Repeat]

She's in line at the dole
With her head held high (high)
While I just lost my job
But didn't lose my pride
And we both know how,
How we're gonna make it work when it hurts,
When you pick yourself up,
You get kicked to the dirt,
Trying to make it work but,
Man these times are hard,

But we're gonna start by,
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Doing things we haven't for a while,
A while ya,
We're smiling but we're close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we're meeting for the first time.

Oooooo
[Repeat]

Yeah...
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying things we haven't for a while,
We're smiling but we're close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we're meeting, for the first time

(Ooooo...), yeahh for the first time,
(Ooooo...), oh for the first time,
(Ooooo...), Yeah for the first time,
(Just now got the feeling that we're meeting... [Yeeeeaaahhh]
For the first time)

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they're making us crazy
Don't give up on me baby

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they're making us crazy
Don't give up on me baby

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they're making us crazy
Don't give up on me baby

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they're making us crazy
Don't give up on me baby

    This song just reminds me of my first shot at love but failed. It wasn't meant to be. The two people described in this song says that it really wasn't working out. The times were hard, but they wanted to keep this relationship working. This song touches me every time because it's really emotional and gets you thinking about the relationship you have or don't have. My feelings run wild on this song and I just love it. Commensalism. You probably heard this word in science class. It means that one species is happy and the other a straight face, meaning one is happy but the other can live without you. Confusing, but this reminds me of what my love life used to be like. I just wish people can care for you, no matter what you are to them. Feelings arise and wishes you want granted just sometimes aren't meant to be. But I continue to care for this person, no matter how crappy they are to me. Thanks for reading and Let it go!

    There's a married couple who are both going through a hard time. Then they say, "screw this! ", cuddle up in bed, and talk it out. They cry, they laugh, and they finally just get to know each other and hold each other through the rough time they are both having.

    fairly sure this is about the recession and how the world is putting pressures on us all at the moment with all the stress of life...I think we have all felt it and some people are lucky enough to find that one person where they love them so much that despite the world taking its hits at us we will be okay and find the things that matter even amongst the horrendous mess we are currently living in. Beautiful song really touches my heart cause I been there myself.

    I think it's about a couple who are together and they are really struggling through and they know that they love each other but when they sit and talk after a while of the problems they are going through and realize how much they really love other and to the extent they are willing to go through together until the end.

    A couple thats been falling apart for months- years, finding that they're only doing things out of "frustration". It might've been harder to let go of the relationship altogether, but finally despite everything in the universe trying to pull them apart, they find themselves finding comfort in each other and realise how much they really love each other before its too late.
