This song challenges us to stay in the moment, to celebrate our wins and live through our losses. I’ve played this at every single show since it was written, and people request it a lot.

Raise a Glass
© 2004 Bryan Masters (cut capo) E A B Raise your glass in the hope that tonight never ends E A B Another round, and don't mind the cost E A B Raise your glass to your sisters and brothers, and friends A That you've found, and friends you've lost E A B E A B Raise your glass E A B It's the same old crew that I've known all along E A B E And that's good for me A B E A few new faces, a few new songs A B That’s as it should be A B So here's to nights like this A B And here's to all of you When the dogs are all barkin' and life gets A little too lifelike Just a slap on the back and a smile from my friend Makes it alright Here's to better days Here's to all of you A B Here's to the things that didn't go wrong A And here's to our blessings, B E A B E A B and here's to the songs that we sing So raise up your glass to this night And all that it can be When you're shoulder to shoulder with friends The rest is easy So here's to nights like this Here's to all of you Bryan Masters Music/ASCAP
