(We're rollin')

John McCauley & Vanessa Carlton | (Both) :
Back in the day
When we used to dance
You'd chuckle every time that I'd misstep

Now that we're older
And our hairs get grey
You never cut me slack for my mistakes

You know I never meant to sink to such depths
Why would I jeopardize what we built behind that fence
Stay with me, baby when you can
It's a pain to see, but I'm still your man

Back in our time
Before the children
We were all the envy of our friends

Then we were blessed
Three little babies
Whatever broke we built it up again


(You know I never meant to sink to the bottom
Why would I jeopardize) what I built as a father
(Stay with me, on some lost weekend)
It's a pain to see but our hearts we can mend

Back in the day, Back in the day
When we used to dance, When we used to dance
You'd chuckle every time that I'd misstep

Now that we're older, Now that we're older
And our hairs get grey, And our hairs get grey
You never cut me slack for my mistakes

(You know I never meant to sink to such depths
Why would I jeopardize) what we built behind that fence
(Stay with me baby when you can)
It's a pain to see, but you're still my man
Oh, it's a pain to see, but I'm still your man

John J. McCauley III
