That's Why I'm Here

In the style of

Kenny Chesney

Lyrics

well i ain't had
nothin' to drink
i knew that's probably
what you'd think
if i dropped by
this time of night

remember
way back when
i promised you
i'd drop in
at one of those
meetings
down at the "y"

when they
started talkin' 'bout
steps you take
mistakes you make
the hearts you break
and the price you pay
i almost
walked away

you could
hear a pin drop
when this old man
stood up and said
i'm gonna say it again
like i do every week
for those
who don't know me

it's the simple things
in life like the kids
your home
and a lovin' wife
that you
miss the most
when you
lose control

and everything
you love
starts to disappear
the devil
takes your hand
and says no fear
have another shot

just one more beer
yeah i've been there
that's why i'm here

this old boy stood up
in the aisle
said he'd been livin'
a life of denial
and he cried
as he talked about
wasted years

i couldn't believe
what i heard
it was my life
word for word
then all of a sudden
it was clear

it's the simple things
in life like the kids
your home
and a lovin' wife
that you
miss the most
when you
lose control

and everything
you love
starts to disappear
the devil
takes your hand
and says no fear
have another shot

just one more beer
yeah i've been there
that's why i'm here

i know for us
it may be too late
but it would mean
the world to me
if you were there
when i stand to say

it's the simple things
in life like the kids
your home
and a lovin' wife
that you
miss the most
when you
lose control

and everything
you love
starts to disappear
the devil
takes your hand
and says no fear
have another shot

just one more beer
yeah i've been there
that's why i'm here
oh i've been there
that's why i'm here
