about

Life gets hard. Sometimes you get kicked down and you have to pick yourself back up. However, it helps when you've got your best friend, a pup, and a dream on your side.

lyrics

Remember those days when we
Couldn’t find our way I was
Lost in the dark but still
Slaving away and as it

Came to be there are just
Things you can’t foresee I was
Caught up in my mind but still
Wasting time

Now so long to living as planned
Sweet turned to sour and me without a lemonade stand

What’s meant to be will be
When it all comes crumblin’ down you’ll see
Cause there ain’t no rest for you and me
Till our name’s in light on the red marque so

You feel life let you down
Your beat not broken kicked around
But you still got me and the pup
And there’s your theory three

Remember that night when you called
Asked if I’m alright
I couldn’t hold back my setbacks
Things were not okay

(So I rushed home to see you)

Just because you knew I’d need you
Ashamed to say my name had been defamed

Now so long to work as planned
It’s hard to control what’s been said secondhand

What’s meant to be will be
When it all comes crumblin’ down you’ll see
Cause there ain’t no rest for you and me
Till our name’s in light on the red marque so

You feel life let us down
Beat not broken kicked around
But you’ve started something here with me
A little sprout to feed

Let’s search the stars for constellations
Connecting dots as we scout out destinations
We’re given a bad hand (but let’s not throw out the game)
Strive to do our best as we hone the aim

Though we felt life had us beat
It didn’t break us even in face of defeat

What’s meant to be will be
When it all comes crumblin’ down you’ll see
Cause there ain’t no rest for you and me
Till our name’s in light on the red marque so

We feel life let us down
Beat not broken kicked around
But we have each other here and now
And that’s all we need
