Lyrics

setting aside all the ways we didn't try
misunderstandings and the silence that divides
a decade now gone by
and we could not have lived it
any other way

he was a good man
and i'm glad he loved me
"here's to us," i say

setting aside my old ways of flee and hide
my body's freeze and fall, all refusals to the fight
a decade now gone by
and we did not deserve what we got
or what we gave

he was a good man
and i'm glad i loved him
"here's to us," i say

it's a decade that's gone by
so now it's high time for
a fine glass to be raised

he was a good man
and i'm glad we loved so long
seems more sad than right or wrong
i guess i'm glad for that
i'll tip my hat
"here's to us
here's to us
here's to us"

a decade now gone by
a decade now
gone by
