Brand New Ball Game

Now that we’ve said our vows
Now that we are married
Now that we’ve committed
To one love until we’re buried

It’s a brand new ball game
Things are different than before
It’s a brand new ballgame
Without innings or keeping score
Without bases, without pitches
With dreams of going
from rags to riches
No, things will never be the same
Cause it’s a brand new ball game
Yeah, it’s a brand new ball game

We’re safe to have disagreements
without the fear of being ejected
There’s a relief I’m feeling now
One I never would have expected

I would have never thought I’d have
the kind of endless joy I used to see
In those couples who chose love
instead of staying single and free

It’s a brand new ball game
Things are different than before
It’s a brand new ball game
Without home runs or keeping score
Without foul balls or bad calls
I still might say,
“You’re killing me, Smalls.”
The Bangles called it an eternal flame
and if we fail, then we’re to blame
In this brand new ball game
This brand new ball game
This brand new ball game
