"Hangin' Round Here" as written by and John Hiatt....
If I could go back to love's first blush
Oh my lordy, it would be a big rush
But I know you can't go back
You gotta keep moving, that's a natural fact

So here we are, still in love
I swear to you, honey, by the stars above
It's an old man's dreams that a young man fears
Well, I learned that, honey, just hangin' 'round here

I'm proud of my mistakes
And all the love and the trouble that I ever did make
I never meant to hurt no one
And when I did, it wasn't any fun

But all the roads lead me straight to you
It's all good, every little thing that you do
It gets me going just to have you near
Well, I learned that, honey, just hangin' around here

Round here a man has to stand up tall
Round here a man has gotta learn to crawl
Got to go to the bottom to see the top
It's a one way ticket, and it never does stop

If I could go back, I'd be alone
'Cause there's nothing back there, just dust and bones
I guess it's you and me
Stumbling to the twenty-first century

My mind's half gone, but I don't care
Ain't thinking ahead; I'm just getting there
And if you want, you can help me steer

Well, I learned that, honey, just hangin' 'round here
Well, I learned that, baby, just hangin' 'round here
Well, I learned that, honey, just hangin' 'round here
