"Use Mine" as written by and Lisa A/seskin Drew....
I was eight years old, we were poor as dirt
Mom was pregnant with my sister and dad was out of work
I wanted a bicycle to ride with my friends
A shiny western flyer in candy-apple red
I couldn't understand why that bike never came
But money can't buy what I got in its place
Dad tied wooden blocks to the pedals of his Schwinn
Rolled out that clunker and said with a grin

Use mine, go ahead take it, what else is it for
I wish I could do more, just go slow
You're gonna do fine, this is what life's all about
Use mine

Senior prom, I was scared to death
But I finally called up Julianne and she said, yes
On top of the world when the big night arrived
Till suddenly it dawned on me what I had to drive
My rusty blue Dodge had one orange door
Rips in the seats and a hole in the floor
I looked at my dad and his new Mercury
And I couldn't believe it when he tossed me the key and said

Use mine, go ahead take it, what else is it for
I wish I could do more, just go slow
You're gonna do fine, this is what life's all about
Use mine

Now I'm sittin' here starin' at my old man
The doctors don't give him much time
He's tryin' to stand up but his strength is all gone
So I say to my hero as I offer my arm

Use mine, go ahead take it, what else is it for
I wish I could do more, just go slow
You're gonna do fine, this is what life's all about
Use mine

This is what life's all about
Everything comes back around
Use mine
