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 🙂

  2. I am depressed. Because my parents are fitting. Sooo I do this and sooo the worlds not bad 😭😭😭😭 uggg

  3. "And they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car, But they never had to travel cause they would never be apart" that was the best part of the whole song in my opinion

  4. So true 😊☺️🌝🌛👽💞🤟👍 ❤️ keep doing what you are doing, we love it!!! 🥺♥️♥️♥️❤️

  5. hah my bestfriends mom was nineteen when she was born and she was the east side of town

  6. My friend played this at a pool party. We’re 10.

    She also played let me down slowly, Copycat, bury a friend, and that one song that goes like “I don’t want no short skirt, daddy’s money, don’t work, Shop until you drop on the town.” But hey! She has good taste!

  7. Listening to this song brought back so many memories (and tears). I remember elementary school where everything was easy and my friends and I were inseparable. The time when my friend sent me her suicide note and I beat myself up because I thought I was the reason. When my best friend moved away and I'll only get to see her once a year instead of all day. When my friend is coming back to my school after being homeschooled for a year and I don't know how to feel because I love her, but I made so many friends without her there because her not being there got me out of my comfort zone. And just everything else. (I'm sorry for posting this, no one wanted to hear it, but I just felt like pouring it out) (Also, my friend is alive and well thank goodness <3)

  8. My little bro knows how much I love this song and he sang me those last few lines for my birthday…. I cried

  9. I know this is probably gonn sound typical or cringy but the reason I love this song because I have a close friend who seems to be drifting little by little away from me and reason is probably bcoz we don spend so much time like before bcoz we are different class and she spend more time with other friend although this might seem harmless but I don wanna lose her my love for her is still the same before as best friends I just don wan her to hate me… she probably doesnt know how many times I have cried bcoz of her bcoz Im scared our friendship would get weaker and Im scared..

  10. The last chorus got me good, I have two younger brothers and even though they are maybe the most annoying people on the planet, they’ll always be my brothers….

  11. Actually.. I love him.. He sings so good…he sings the truth and storys..his music makes me always think about life and the world and also human and the way we live with each other

  12. i know im not the only one who has a bad habit of looking through the comments while the video plays

  13. I've been listening to this song without actually knowing what the lyrics were, however, I decided to take a look and now im crying. Thanks.

  14. This song makes me forget all the bad stuff…my parents are getting divorced my mom is in depth she's getting sick and I repeated school 3 time because of how poor we are and sometimes we dont eat for 2 days we barley have food we got Bill's pilling up and some other problems

  15. “You should know I’ll be there for you” – Alec Benjamin

    Me: Hard Times, me crying, remembering I’ve been nervous to tell my parents to say what’s been on my mind, and what’s happening at school, regretting not opening up, and saying how much I’ve been hurting for 4 1/2 Years

  16. “The world’s not perfect but it’s not that bad if We got each other “ beautiful!

  17. Since lately I've been listening mostly to Korean, and I haven't heard of this song, I'm really thankful to Jimin for introducing me to it. Great song!

  18. u should know that ice cream and pringles will be there if a girl/boy leaves u

  19. 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 friend and I'll hold your 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

  20. I made my brothers listen to this then they understand what i meant but this is in the fake thing in the reality they are too kind and polite , smart, and the best

  21. Alec
    you r gem for me, i love u
    really obessed with all of ur song💗💗💗

  22. Alec: *Writes a verse for his sister

    My brother: I don’t even know who you are

  23. Reply to this comment what comes to your mind when you think of Alec Benjamin
    When I think of Alec Benjamin I think of a Talented Story Teller and singer!

  24. I'm 19 and my floks are getting old i know they don't have forever, and I'm scared to be alone "fact"👊

  25. I’m actually crying 🥺😭. I really just broke down in tears reading the lyrics

  26. This song is always stuck in my head, sometimes I don’t even notice I’m singing it ;—;

  27. I thought the song was talking about the mother and her relationship with the baby, until I got to the verse where it says “I’ll be your lover”
    Lmao

  28. This is like me and my bestie we were really close and then she starting drifting away from me and I started growing anxiety and she use to never leave me alone and if I was sad she was sad and I miss doing things with her I'm kin of alone bc my siblings never know how I feel anymore. '^_^'

  29. I was playing this song on my big speaker. My brother was laying on the couch watching me play games. At the end of the song, the brother part came on. I started singing the part. I was like "Hopfuly he hears this verse…." And "I you could be nice to me one day" because I love him so much but it seems like he doesn't back. But I know that he loves me. This song is perfect!

  30. I'm 23, turning 24 in less than a month. My parents had me late, so the gray hairs are coming in, their bodies getting worn and tattered. I think of all they've done for me, how I still haven't repaid them and I'm scared I never will.

    My sister is older but was always there for me and things are hard for her right now, it's rare to see her cry but lately that's all I keep seeing from her are tears. We've always been close, our conversations always keeping her sane or stable when she can't get through the day.

    I'd never heard of Alec before. His face looks familiar, like one you'd seen in a dream or another life. But I've been listening to his music for the past hour and when the last verse hit, the tears were instantaneous. I've never met him, our paths never crossed. But it's like he wrote that verse for me to hear.

    It's funny how people and music come into our lives at the time when we need them most. 💜

  31. When he was singing to his sister, he described the relationships between twins so well. I wonder if he is one.

  32. lol i’m crying bc my brother is being drafted into the navy and i’m not gonna see him or like 6 years. he’s my best friend 🙁 love you chance.

  33. This song makes me cry to be honest.. Knowing the lyrics makes me cry even more😭 Alec, you need more recognition😔✨💖💖

  34. i swear singing this is like a rap that isn't. I'm amazed by Alec's talent honestly

  35. i have learnt the whole song, as i listen to this song 18 times a day…

  36. And they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car, But they never had to travel cause they'd never be apart. if we have each other~~ Alec B.

  37. THIS WAS AWESOME!! I LOVED IT CELEBRATIES SHOULD HEAR THIS SI SOOG OOD.

  38. "When the world's not kind
    If we have each other then we'll both be fine" That all i wanna hear from this song!!!

  39. I love how his story telling gets me to tears every time. I love his talent so much. Have you noticed how his voice is sincere and soulful. I hope we all feel it. Good day / evening.

  40. If We Have Eachother
    Alec Benjamin
    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, 'cross town she would take the bus at night
    To a one bedroom apartment, and when 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 she hoped her baby would arrive
    She'd never be alone
    Have someone to hold
    And when 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
    When 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 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'd made
    And though 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
    No, 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
    When 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 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'd 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 your hand
    You should know I'll be there for you
    When 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
    Thanks for reading!
