Alec Benjamin - If We Have Each Other: chords

       A#m
She was 19 with a baby on the way
        G#
On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
          Fm
Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
         F#                                               G#
She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
     A#m                                              G#
And, 'cross town she would take the bus at night to a one bedroom apartment
And when she'd turn on the light
           Fm
She would sit down at the table
Tell herself that it's alright
         F#
She was waiting on the day
                           G#
she hoped her baby would arrive
     A#m            G#
She'd never be alone
                    Fm
Have someone to hold
And when nights were cold
F#
She'd say

Chorus:
                A#m
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
               G#
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Fm
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
            F#
You should know I'll be there for you
          G#          A#m
When the world's not perfect
When the world's not kind
                G#
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
               Fm
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
            F#                       G#
You should know I'll be there for you

They were 90 and were living out their days
On the Westside of the city, next to where they got engaged
They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they'd made
And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
With each other, and though some times were hard
Even when she made him angry, he would never break her heart
No, they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
Even at the end
Their love was stronger than
The day that they first met
They'd say

Chorus:
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
If we got each other, and that's all we have
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
You should know I'll be there for you
When the world's not perfect, when the world's not kind
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
You should know I'll be there for you

A#m G#    Fm
Oh  Ooh OOoh
            F#                       G#
You should know I'll be there for you

I'm 23, and my folks are getting old
I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
I know she'd never leave me, and I hate to see her cry
So I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
I wrote this verse to tell her that

Chorus:
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
If we got each other, and that's all we have
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
You should know I'll be there for you
When the world's not perfect, when the world's not kind
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
You should know I'll be there for you

Mmm, mmm, mmm
You should know I'll be there for you
