We Got This

by Melanie Peterson

supported by


An ode to a relationship that is struggling, and a belief that because there is still love, there is still hope.


If you don't care
Why are you still here?
If I'm not the one for you
Why hold me like you do?
If it's time
Time to move along
Why do we talk and talk
Until our voices are gone?
Baby let me say one more thing
Let me try to ease your mind
Cuz you mean the world to me
And love is not a waste of time
Baby we got this
We got this
We got so much love it hurts
We got this
I knew it from the first
Baby we got this
If you're waiting for me
To turn and set you free
Your gonna wait a long long time
Cuz I want you by my side
Baby put your suitcases down
Reach over and draw the shade
Cuz I wanna remind you now
Of all the love we've made
Baby we've got this
We've got this
We've got so much love it hurts
Baby we've got this
You knew it from the first
Baby we got this
Step away from the door
And hold me tight
I don't want to fight anymore
Baby we got this
We got this
We got so much love it hurts
Baby we got this
We knew it from the first
Baby we got this
