We’re Gonna Make It

 

It wasn’t such an easy life,

Her Dad died when she was four.

Her Momma pulled the kids beside her,

And said, “This isn’t what we asked for.

 

But we’re all in this together,

And we’re all gonna work it out,

Remember that we’ve got each other,

Any time you start to doubt

 

That we can make it.

Look into these eyes of mine,

We’re gonna make it,

As long as we keep trying,

We’re gonna make it.”

 

It wasn’t such an easy love,

They came together in fits and starts

She’d pull him in, then push him away,

Wanting his love, but guarding her heart.

 

Her Momma wasn’t all that sure,

That he was ever gonna be good enough,

One night his baby grabbed his arm,

When she could see that he was getting fed up,

And she said, “Hey,

 

We’re gonna make it.

Look into these eyes of mine,

We’re gonna make it,

As long as we keep trying,

We’re gonna make it.

We’re in this together.

We’re gonna make it,

Cause we’ve got each other.

We’re gonna make it.”

 

And when they planned their wedding day,

She had one last big question:

Who would walk her down the aisle,

He had a sweet suggestion.

 

And there he stood, the nervous groom,

All eyes on the back of the room,

And he could see the way they smiled,

As his bride walked up the aisle,

On her Momma’s arm.

 

We’re gonna make it,

Look into these eyes of mine,

We’re gonna make it,

As long as we keep trying,

We’re gonna make it,

We’re in this together.

We’re gonna make it,

Cause we’ve got each other.

We’re gonna make it,

Look into these eyes of mine.

We’re gonna make it,

As long as we keep trying.

We’re gonna make it.
