Laughed Until We Cried

Going through my closet the other day
Found an old yearbook, flipped right to the page
Of that senior trip, down there on that Panama strip

We all started yelling when we smelled the beach
Couldn't wait to try our fake ID's
We only had a few days and a whole lot of memories to make

Oh man, we were livin', didn't waste one minute
We talked and drank and danced and said goodbye
We laughed until we cried

This past year, my family was sittin' cross-legged
'Round the Christmas tree, listenin' to granddad
We all knew it'd probably be his last

He was crackin' jokes and we were takin' turns
Tellin' stories 'bout fishing or lessons learned
Out on the porch with him, we all felt like kids again

Oh man, we were livin', sittin' there, reminiscin'
We sang and talked and traveled back in time
We laughed until we cried

It's like the best days under the sun
Every emotion rolled into one
A little of this, a little of that
Kind of happy, kind of sad

Just the other night, the baby was cryin'
So I got out of bed and rocked her awhile
And I held her tight and I told her it would be alright

And my mind went back to a few years ago
When we tried so long, we almost gave up hope
And I remember you comin' in and tellin' me the news

Oh man, we were livin', goin' crazy in the kitchen
We danced and screamed and held each other tight
We laughed until we cried
