When the drinks come marchin' in, guess we do the resolution
The evidence of last night's, scattered on the floor
We caffeniate our blood, talk religion and our families,
Graduate then separate, throw our caps into the air

Now it's 3 o'clock in the morning, and you're cryin' on the curb.
If you never scrap your knees, you're never gonna learn
Never said that life was easy, but we're gonna make it work.

When you'll need me I'll be there,
A friend in the eye of the storm.
And when all the lights burn out
I'll carry you out of the dark,
I'm come to your rescue

You remember when we used to swing from street lights.
Chasing New York minutes from pacific time
And if I didn't believe in you, why the hell am I still here?
Like an album gloss we're lost in, even after all these years.

When you need me I'll be there,
A friend in the eye of the storm.
And when all the lights burn out
I'll carry you out of the dark,
I'll come to your rescue

When your ups and downs, spin you round and round again
If you're dizzy now, when your world is caving in
I'll come to your rescue
Oh you, oh you, oh you, oh you
Come to your rescue.


And one day the sky so clear, nothing to worry no fear
Oh you, oh you, oh you, oh you
Oh you, oh you, oh you, oh you

    It is basically saying he'll be there for her through everything, through the ups and downs. They've been together for so long that if they can't believe in each other, then what can they believe in. He is telling her that he'll always be there for her, to help her and to pick her back up again when she falls down. They'll make life work, make it be okay, even when it sucks. Things aren't always going to be easy, but they'll be alright. There isn't anything that they can't make it through together. And when the world caves in around them, he'll help her pick it back up and put things back together. It's the special bond that two people have between them that makes the world a tolerable place, that makes it possible to wake up in the mornings, get out of bed, and live your life, even when things are bad. It's about having someone to come to your rescue when everything you've worked up to is crumbling around you. When you have a bond like that, you never let that person go. You hold on tightly, and help each other to take it in stride when life throws hard times your way.
