They said love was a thing of the past
That these days, nothing ever lasts
This old world is movin' too fast

Well, sometimes we ride around
She plays her radio up loud
If I was sad, well, I'm happy now

And it feels so good to know
I got you where you belong
Here in my heart, right by my side
Honey, you're getting me by
Yeah, you're keeping me alive

I got a job, I work hard
These days the money don't go very far
It's hard enough keeping gas in the car

But sometimes we ride around
She plays the radio up loud
If I was sad, well, I'm happy now

Yeah, and it feels so good to know
I got you where you belong
Here in my heart, right by my side
Honey, you're getting me by
Yeah, you're keeping me alive

And it feels so good to know
I got you where you belong
Here in my heart, right by my side
Honey, you're getting me by
Yeah, you're keeping me alive

Yeah, you're keeping me alive
Yeah, you're keeping me alive
