Lyrics

Well my cousin Joe got married, don't you know
At a big old church on Melrose Lane
Yeah, the reception was great, man the band played late
And we all got high on pink champagne

Yeah, reality set in when that old fightin' broke in
It brought the bride and groom to tears
What was meant to last forever
Barely made it past one year

Seems like every time, I turn around
The Kodak smiles turned upside down
No wonder I've lost a little faith in love

CHORUS
It's hard to believe after everything I've seen
I could feel the way I do
But if I'm ever gonna make it, I could make it with a girl like you
Yeah, you and me,
We've got this chance to have a love that will last our whole life through
And If I'm ever gonna make it, I can make it with a girl like you.

Now days fly by, and the time that I once spent thinkin' dreams can't come true
Has turned into the start of a scrapbook of pages full of memories with you
From the moment when I just couldn't believe that this could ever happen to me
To the realization that brought me down to one knee

And, so here I stand with you hand in hand
As you slip on my wedding band
With a whole new belief and faith in love

It's hard to believe after everything I've seen
I could feel the way I do
But if I'm ever gonna make it, I could make it with a girl like you.
Yeah, you and me,
We've got this chance to have a love that will last our whole life through
And If I'm ever gonna make it, I can make it with a girl like you

Make it with a girl like you
I can make it
Oh Yeah
If I'm ever gonna make it, I can make it with a girl like you
Mi
