Flight 709 pulled up to the gate An hour and forty five minutes late And of course our connection was already in the air Spent a day of our vacation in Chicago O'Hare And like musical chairs at the baggage belt We were the last ones standin' there when nothin' came out Looking back now on our string of bad luck That just wasn't our day but you know what?
That one night in Las Vegas Lyin' there with you Was well worth everything that you and I went through
And so it goes, our life's been that way Puttin' out fires, takin' it day by day And look at this year, it's been our hardest one yet Just when we thought it had gotten bad as it could get You got transferred to Denver, I stayed behind Put the house on the market 'bout went outta my mind And your dad got sick, I've never seen you so scared We almost didn't make it through the year
But that weekend in the mountains In a cabin all by ourselves Makin' that one memory made up for everything else
Oooh me and my insecurities You and your stubborn pride If we've learned anything it's there's no winner when we fight
So this mornin' in our kitchen After talkin' all night long We finally stopped tryin' to figure out Who's right and who is wrong And when you hold me like you're holdin' me And I kiss your tired face We know we took the long way here But wound up in a better place
Baby one night in Las Vegas Or one weekend in the mountains Any moment we're together makes up for everything else
