Lyrics

FOR THE LIKES OF YOU
I probably drink more than I should
Lay down this burden if I could
Sometimes I don’t know where I’m headed to
But I press on for the likes of you

I’ve sailed this ship now a hundred times
Crashed it again on the borderline
And when I thought I wouldn’t make it through
I pressed on for the likes of you

For the likes of you I keep sailing
Down these dark, dank corridors
Though it’s lonely and I’m flailing
I keep reaching for your shore
Finally realize that it was foolish
To try to make it on my own
When I’m at my weakest
Your love’s shining strong
And I keep pressing on for the likes of you

Now here you are with a second chance
Willing to give it another dance
Sometimes you do what you gotta do
And I press on for the likes of you

I see the hope there in your smile
Walking with me for another mile
Somehow I know that we can make it through
And I press on for the likes of you

For the likes of you I keep sailing
Down these dark, dank corridors
Though it’s lonely and I’m flailing
I keep reaching for your shore
Finally realize that it was foolish
To try to make it on my own
When I’m at my weakest
Your love’s shining strong

For the likes of you I keep sailing
Down these dark, dank corridors
Though it’s lonely and I’m flailing
I keep reaching for your shore
Finally realize that it was foolish
To try to make it on my own
When I’m at my weakest
Your love’s shining strong

And I keep pressing on for the likes of you
For the likes of you
