"Dairy Queen" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Ray....
I heard that you were drunk and mean down at
Dairy queen
There's just enough of you in me
For me to have this sympathy

And take it in stride
I know I had mine
And you were as kind
I am told

Ain't it funny how we lose one day
And a lifetime slips away
I'm looking back on us that way
Something I never thought I'd say
I take it in stride
I know I had mine
It was good for a time
I am told
It was good for a time
I am told

The love you gave was not for free
But the price was truly fair
I never felt so glad to be
So well spent and so beyond repair
I take it in stride
At least you were mine
If not for all time
Enough to hold
Or at least, enough for me to hold you

Now take good care that you are true
You said you found it hard to do
And find that bit of faith that sets you free
From having everything to prove
And you take it in stride
And know you've got mine
And it's good for a lifetime or more
Hey I love you more and more
Oh I love you more and more yeah

    My InterpretationThe artist is in a pretty negative relationship and appears to excuse some pretty bad behavior on account of the badness she sees in herself. The song takes place after this has been going on for a while, and everything she's excusing is starting to take its toll. She only expected it to be a short while, and suddenly years and years have passed "Funny how you lose one day"/"And a lifetime slips away".

    "I take it in stride, I know I had mine" is the artist acknowledging her own bad behavior. She's "had her moments" as well. And the end, she's talking about how the bond endures, despite the both of them. She sees their faith to one another as what sets them free from their pride, "Having everything to prove."
