everyday since we met
I have made a list of
what I have and what I didn’t get
without working hard for it
without working hard for it

you are the one thing
on that list I could never earn
you are the one thing
on that list I could never earn
but I promise not to quit
and I promise not to quit

and everyday since we met
I have made a second list of
what I have and what I’ll never get
you are the one thing
on that list I’ll never get
but if I do get it
if I do get it
if I do get it
I will work to make it work
I will work to make it work
I will work to make it work
I will work to make it work
and I promise not to quit
and I promise not to quit
yes, I promise not to quit
and I promise not to quit
yes, I promise not to quit

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious what this song is about, but egads, this gets to me.

    "I will work to make it work and I promise not to quit"
    I can relate to that desire to work incredibly and endlessly to create or save something that you have been waiting for for your entire life; the desire to toil ceaselessly to make up for the lack of effort on the second party's side. It's slaughter.
