Linger On

lyrics

On my daughter's birthday I woke up with a smile
It's a hard thing to imagine but my smile measured a mile
My beautiful wife, so full of life, was about to give me a child
And that's one of those moments I chose to linger on for a while

'cause life will learn you a lesson
It teaches you every day
You can't have the good times without all the bad times
A lesson I learned in one day
And on the happiest day of my life
I looked at my beautiful wife
Said, "Sorry my dear, bad times are here
But it's not the last time we'll smile."
And I'll linger on that for a while

On my daughters's birthday it ended in rivers of tears
It's a hard thing to imagine but our sorrow would last for some years
At the end of the day I really couldn't say if I'd ever be happy again
But look at us now, we made it somehow and my wife is still my best friend
And I'll linger on that 'til the end

'cause life will learn you a lesson
It teaches you every day
You can't have the good times without all the bad times
A lesson I learned in one day
And on the happiest day of my life
I looked at my beautiful wife
Said, "Sorry my dear, bad times are here
But it's not the last time we'll smile."
And I'll linger on that for a while

Linger on that for a while
Linger on that
