lyrics

So good to see you, thanks for dropping by
For the great conversation and great rest of the night
Blame it on the dim lights or that bottle of wine
But it was just like old times

You always were the one that knew me the best
Those spot lights in your eyes always force me to confess
So I'll tell you now my life has not worked out as planned
But last night you know I didn't give a damn

It doesn't matter, where we have been
I'm sure we both looked better, in our younger skin
And I know we will never, ever feel the same
But we can help each other, get back in the game
We always help each other, get back in the game

I've got the kids on the weekend and two jobs in between
My world looks nothing like the one on my TV
Sometimes I feel like I've let everybody down
But I never feel that way when you're around

I know you have had your share of rotten luck
It's hard to move on with your life when you don't know you're stuck
You finally left him and I know you'll find love again
But know you'll always have a place to stay 'till then

And it doesn't matter, where we have been
I know we both looked better, in our younger skin
And I know it will never, ever be the same
But we can help each other, get back in the game
We always help each other, get back in the game

I know someday we'll have to role the dice again
We're never gonna get lucky if we never ante in
But I'm so glad you laid your hand down, onto mine last night
You know I’ll play again with you babe, anytime

It doesn't matter, where we have been
I'm sure we both looked better, in our younger skin
And I know we will never, ever feel the same
But we can help each other, get back in the game
We always help each other, get back in the game
