The Princess and the Mermaid

from Sweet Life

These days we can't seem to find the time
After picking up toys and giving up airplane rides
But the princess and the mermaid in the backseat
Have pointed out the moon and fallen asleep
Amen

Driving past the place we used to live
Before we lived with crayons and with cribs
Sometimes I don't know how we got here
A little dream of our own and we got here
Amen

Whatever it takes, whatever we need
I believe that we can make it my love
Whatever comes, you are the one
Who helps me to believe I'm strong enough

These days we choose what bills to pay
And we never used to fight but we did today
Someone's always coming down with something
Take another day off work again
Amen

Whatever it takes, whatever we need
I believe that we can make it my love
Whatever comes, you are the one
Who helps me to believe I'm strong enough

When times get a little rough
The princess and the mermaid in the backseat
Open up a world for us to see love

Whatever it takes, whatever we need
I believe that we can make it my love
Whatever comes, you are the one
Who helps me to believe I'm strong enough
