So many years now together
All those good times, ups and downs
So many joys raising up those kids
They’ve moved on now, out of town

So many times she tried
So many times she cried

And every morning comes the sun
And they both rise into the day
Holding onto what they’ve done

She loves him so…
She does what she has to

She loves him so…
She does what she needs to

In a Ramada Inn near the grapevine
They stop to rest for the night
Traveling down south looking for good times
Visiting old friends feels right

People they haven’t seen in forever
Since high school, San Jose times
Some restaurant food and a bottle
Had a few drinks and now they’re feeling fine

And every morning comes the sun
And they both rise into the day
Holding on to what they’ve done

He loves her so…
He does what he has to

He loves her so…
He does what he needs to

Seem like lately things are changing
Seem like lately things are going south
A few drinks now and she hardly knows him
He just looks away and checks out

When she says “it’s time to do something”
Maybe talk to his old friends who gave it up
He just pours himself another tall one
Closes his eyes and says “that’s enough”

And every morning comes the sun
And they both rise into the day
Holding on to what they’ve done

She loves him so…
She does what she has to

He loves her so…
He does what he needs to

And every morning comes the sun
And they both rise into the day
Holding onto what they’ve done

He loves her so…
He does what he needs to

She loves him so…
She does what she has to
