Happy to Oblige

Leave it to Paul Meany to capture exactly what it feels like to have been married and have children so young, and still be confident that we’ll make it through in the end.

I was just a kid when I first laid eyes on you
I told myself we’d marry by the time I’m 22
I didn’t have a dollar to my name when I proposed
Will you say yes? One can hope
Folks said we’re crazy
We figured they were wrong
If nothing last forever, we’d vow to carry on
Whoever disagreed, we’d just write them off as old
We didn’t care when we were told

In this life, there’s no easy come or easy go
On this drive, there’s no such thing as cruise control
We may ride upon a sea of highs and lows
But by your side, I’m happy to oblige
By your side, I’m happy to oblige

It’s no surprise we were always in over our heads
The only peaceful moments were when we got the kids to bed
We’re both working nonstop to keep us all afloat
In the fire, we came to know

In this life, there’s no easy come or easy go
On this drive, there’s no such thing as cruise control
We may ride upon a sea of highs and lows
But by your side, I’m happy to oblige
