lyrics

Down the road we walked, down the road we talked. I remember when I made war with you, I made peace with you. That’s what makes you my friend, and if it’s us against the world, well I would bet on us to come out on top. But if you go yours and I go mine, all bets are off.
This is dedicated, this one’s dedicated to you. This one’s because we made it, this one’s because we made it through.
There was a time I thought half the friends you got were counterfeit at best. And you thought it wasn’t right how I lived my life, but time put those doubts to rest.
And if it’s us against the world, and still I would bet on us to come out on top. But if you go your way and I go mine, all bets are off.
This one’s dedicated, this one’s dedicated to you. This one’s because we made it, this one’s because we made it through.
This is dedicated, this one’s dedicated to you. This one’s because we made it, this one’s because we made it through.
This is dedicated, this one is dedicated to you. Oh, you. This one’s because we made it, one because we made it through.
Down the road we walked, down the road we talked. I remember when.
