Babe, its Been a Long Week

Babe, it’s been a long week and it hit me like a train

And now that we’re in bed and my whole world’s a wreck

We should take some time to clear our heads

I nearly lost you there, and the boys did, too

I’d never seen you down and out like that

And now just havin’ you near is a blessin’, dear

And one that I won’t easily forget

Cause things like only knees and only lungs and only you and one true love make sense

And, babe, it’s been a long, long week and I’m ‘bout ready to cave and fall onto our bed with you

(Now) I realize things ain’t so bad--I’m a husband and a dad and I just gotta get used to that

Yeah, I could be havin’ beers some place south of here but I’d rather be here with you instead

Cause, oh, just havin’ you close is what I need the most to keep all of my fears in check

And baby I can’t express how much I regret when I told you to take the kids and get

Cause (now) things like only knees and only lungs and only you and one true love make sense

And, babe, it’s been a long, long week and I’m ‘bout ready to cave and fall onto our bed with you

Babe, its been a long, long week
