For Better Or Worse

If it was easy everyone would do it
If it were always fun they wouldn’t call it work
If it was simple we wouldn’t help each other through it
But we do for better or worse

If the world was perfect we’d need no grain of salt
If nobody ever sinned then who would go to church
If nothing went sideways we wouldn’t need good luck at all
But we do for better or worse

Seems to come naturally to caregivers and healers
Even when everything’s a blur
Instead of running away we dig a little deeper
We double down for better or worse
Yeah we put each other first for better or worse

I’ve heard it said blood is thicker than H20
And family’s where you turn to when it hurts
Well you didn’t ask to be my family I suppose
But you are for better or worse

Seems to come naturally to caregivers and healers
Even when everything’s a blur
Instead of running away we dig a little deeper
We double down for better or worse
Yeah we put each other first for better or worse

Sure has been a long weird road
And when the gravel runs out we drive on the dirt
Looks like there’s still plenty more miles to go
Fair weather or foul for better or worse
