"You Were Right" as written by and Roger J. Manning....
Another word this whole damn thing could end right here
Just one false move could seal your fate
Everything’s ridin’ on this one yeah there’s way too much
here at stake

An endless riddle that you’ll never ever solve
And confrontation so afraid
Please be advised that your next words could be thrown
right back in your face

You were right
You’ve opened my eyes I can see it
You were right
Now I’ll admit I was wrong
If we could just get along tonight

All too familiar now we’ve both been here before
More times than I’d care to admit
Been bent over backwards turned inside out so this time I’ll
try given in

My heart is poundin’, tongue is tied, I’m all choked up
Can’t even look you in the eye
No way to predict what you need to hear so no reason left
not to lie

You were right
That’s what I’ve been sayin’ this whole time
You were right
Now can we just get to bed forget all those things we said
You were right
I guess that I’ve known for a long time
You were right this time
Now I’ll admit I was wrong
No need to go on and on

Time flies when you’re havin’ fun
But those long nights don’t help anyone
Tied up in your petty schemes
Life’s too damn short let’s get on with our dreams

Set sail and do as you wish
It’s a free world with a sea full of fish
You’re sweet but no longer sixteen
Better think twice before you sell us upstream

I’m feelin’ sorry for us now but mostly me
Cuz once again I take the blame
If it makes you feel better to have the last word
Then have the last word
Keep your last word its all that you can claim
No more games

You were right
How many more times must you hear it
You were right
It’s been one hell of a ride I’m happy to step aside
You were right
Now who in the world would believe in it
You were right this time
Could we please put the gun down
Must you wave that thing around

You were right
You were right this time
