Here’s to all the luck that pours down on me
Here’s to all the melodies that picked us up off our seats
Here’s to the younger ones when they replace me
Here’s to the bitterness that keeps the sweet so sweet

Here’s to all the words that we’ll never speak
Here’s to all the pretty girls that you’re going to meet
Here’s to the little lies I tell in my sleep
Here’s to the secrets that you’re going to keep

Why don’t you raise up, raise up your cup?
I’ve had enough, raise up your cups

Here’s to the company that we used to keep
Here’s to the certainty of sickness and sleep
Here’s to the death of who we thought we were
Here’s to all our kids that’ll never be born

Why don’t you raise up, raise up your cup?
I’m choking up, raise up your cups
To dragging around
A cross and a thorny crown
And living because you’re willing
And being forgiven, thankfully

    General Commentthis is probably my favorite rilo kiley song. i love how jenny sounds on this.

    i think this song is about how much it hurts to let go of the past, but how you have to no matter how much it may pain you. i also get this strong vibe that this song is about blake especially during the parts about "pretty girls you're gonna meet" and "kids that'll never be born".

    General CommentTout simplement excellent
    Pour moi cette chanson illustre parfaitement l'expression "Le verre à moitié plein" et par définition à moitié vide! L'équilibre de chaque chose
    Avec une référence bien placé à une autre chanson de Riley
    Le génie à l'état pur!
