Alec Benjamin ~ If We Have Each Other (Lyrics)


She was 19 with a baby on the way On the East-side of the city, she was working every day Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change And, across town she’d would take The bus at night to a one bedroom apartment And then she’d turn on the light She would sit down at the table, Tell herself that it’s alright She was waiting on the day that She hoped her baby would arrive She’d never be alone Have someone to hold And when the nights were cold, she’d say The world’s not perfect but it’s not that bad If we got each other and that’s all we have I will be your mother and I’ll hold your hand You should know I’ll be there for you And the worlds not perfect, When the world’s not kind If we have each other then we’ll both be fine I will be your mother and I’ll hold your hand You should know I’ll be there for you They were 90 and were living out their days on the west-side of the city next to where they got engaged they had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they made and their life was never easy they were thankful that they stayed With each other and though some times were hard even when she made him angry he would never break her heart And they didn’t have the money to afford a fancy car But they never had to travel ’cause they d never be apart Even at the end, their love was stronger than the day that they first met, They’d say The world’s not perfect but it’s not that bad If we got each other and that’s all we have I will be your lover and I’ll hold your hand You should know I’ll be there for you And the world’s not perfect, When te world’s not kind If we have each other then we’ll both be fine I will be your lover and I’ll hold your hand You should know I’ll be there for you You should know I’ll be there for you I’m 23 and my folks are getting old I know they don’t have forever and I’m scared to be alone So i’m thankful for my sister even though sometimes we fight When high school wasn’t easy, she’s the reason I survived I know she never leave me and I hate to see her cry So I wrote this verse to tell her that I’m always by her side I wrote this verse to tell her that I’m always by her side I wrote this verse to tell her that The world’s not perfect but it’s not that bad If we got each other and that’s all we have I will be your brother and I’ll hold you hand You should know I’ll be there for you And the world’s not perfect, When the world’s not kind If we have each other then we’ll both be fine I will be your brother and I’ll hold your hand You should know I’ll be there for you You should know I’ll be there for you Text by Kasia Panami, Tessa Brieger, and more 🙂

  36. Adriana Martinez says:

    My favorite line is “the world is not perfect when the world not kind if we have each other and that’s all we have”

  37. Kittylovespigs 44 says:

    I just realized Alec has a strong connection with the numbers 19 and 90. In the wolf and the sheep Jenny was 19 and as she got older Alec used 90. Same with this song. “She was ninety with a baby on the way” “no they’re 90”

  38. Olivia :3 says:

    2:07 to 2:19 I hope my brother feels and will do the same❤️😔

  39. Hawraa Hasan says:

    So the first time I heard this I was in a plane…I was looking for a movie to watch and then I find “music” I clicked on it and saw one of Alec’s playlist and got so excited bcz I knew him but I never knew this song, I click on the song (this song) and started crying, hopefully nobody saw me but yeah this my lame story! Nobody cares but just thought I wanted to share this:)❤️.
