what would you do if I asked you to run away with me, run away with me? how do you think it would feel with me behind the wheel and you picking out the tunes? I'd tell you everything I love is here with me in the car get in the car and we'll drive 'till we reach the sea get in the car and we'll get to where we're meant to be we could tell your boss you're not well and run away with me just a couple of days in a strange place we'll pitch our tent by the side of the road I'd tell you everything I love is here with me under the stars get in the car and we'll drive 'till we reach the sea get in the car and we'll get to where we're meant to be follow your heart follow my lead trust your gut come on, come with me I got a plan it's one item long it says "get in the car" and we're gone

You leave me nothing but difficult choices Trying to listen to what that little voice says You get a little attitude, I get a little angry Do what you need to do, because darling, frankly, You’re on your own now It was never a problem while you got what you wanted You offer a bargain, I don’t know what the cost is You get a little attitude, you want me to get angry What are you going to do when I say no thank you You’re on your own now I’ve been feeling like something is changing Something is different but I can’t quite explain it You get your little attitude, but I don’t get angry I’ve got nothing but gratitude and you don’t have to thank me You’re on your own now

Virginia 03:47
Just got the news My old 9 to 5 cut me loose Aint’ been free since God knows when Time to get on the road again Got my bag packed up One more ride in this old pickup truck See your face a thousand miles away I’ll be home in a couple days Home in a couple days Virginia I’m calling out to you Virginia Please be true 50 miles out of San Antone Long to see those blue ridge hills I call home Nothing left but a dollar and a dime I wonder if shel’ll still be mine Still be mine Virginia I’m calling out to you Virginia Please be true Please be true I set out to find a way Left you alone All I found was emptiness Now I’m coming home Drove all through the night Me and this old pickup truck chasing the moonlight The radio is playing our song I’ll be home before too long Before too long Virginia…

I look out the window I read the news I check my phone to see if I missed a text from you I’ve got a to-do list It’s a little too long But it'll still be there when I'm done putting it off. I'm looking for some of that old get up and go get up and go get up and go get up and go you ask me to you ask me three anybody else want to get in line and ask of me? I'll be right here in this old rocking chair there's another one just like it sit beside me here I'm looking for some of that old get up and go get up and go get up and go get up and go it's alright, it's alright just watch the day drift on by drift on by

Later On 06:11
Later on, you’ll find me on the floor A bottle to my name and nothing more The burn of the whiskey heals my soul But the fire in my heart burns out of control She walked in and ordered a tall one Turning head like she liked to do Smelled like a field of wildflowers Though I might go pick me a few Later on, we’ll go dancing Later on, we’ll drink a few Later on, there’ll be romancing Later on, when I can’t have you Woke up with Friday night still on my tongue Got a few wildflowers before the sun Body and soul still in my bed And this love affair stuck in my head Later on, we’ll go dancing Later on, we’ll drink a few Later on, there’ll be romancing Later on, when I can’t have you The look on your face tells it all That ship’s done sailed and I done fell off It ain’t because I’m a bad one Sometimes a broken heart can’t be undone

You thought it was small talk but that's not what I thought that is not what I thought at all I thought it was more than you want to admit but you couldn't stay quiet anymore I can see through you I think you see through me I want the truth, I want the whole truth, I want nothing but the truth it's good to be seen I think at night we lie awake wrestling with the same restless dreams i think it might be mighty nice if you told me what you think that means I can see through you I think you see through me I want the truth, I want the whole truth, I want nothing but the truth it's good to be seen there are some things we don't know how to say how to let go and release I want to open the door for those fears to go I want you to open the door for me

I don’t know what we look like To somebody looking from the outside in All I know is that when we’re looking Eye to eye I want skin to skin I’ve got a feeling beating in my heartbeat I’ve got a feeling with no end in sight I’ve got a feeling we got something starting And if something’s starting, now’s a real good time All I know is that we’ve got something We’ve got something to figure out Let’s figure it out I see you looking through your eyelashes I see your hips move to the two and four I hear your laughter cut through these voices Finish your drink and then we’re out the door I’ve got a feeling beating in my heartbeat I’ve got a feeling with no end in sight I’ve got a feeling we got something starting And if something’s starting, now’s a real good time All I know is that we’ve got something We’ve got something to figure out Let’s figure it out Get a little bit of heaven while the gettin’s good (let’s figure it out) Do a little bit of living, I think we should All I know is that we’ve got something We’ve got something to figure out Let’s figure it out

She Speaks 03:45
Lately, she’s been wondering If what she heard was right Keep inside the lines, You’ll be fine She’s letting down her hair now Hips sway side to side Dancing in the moonlight There’s no time She speaks in the way her body moves Without saying a word Shadows fall around her Skips into the light All that truly matters She feels inside Shedding all her past doubts Breaking the rules Each untethered motion She can choose She speaks in the way her body moves Without saying a word When she moves She finally believes What it means to be free

When a Woman 03:15
when a woman tells you that she wants you you believe her when a woman tells that she needs you you better kiss her behind her ear take some time to understand her secrets contained within take the time to please her or she'll find someone who can when a woman tells you that she loves you you believe her when a woman tells you that she loves you you better listen with both ears take some time to understand just what has been done now you've got something to say or you better have somewhere to run the minute she told me she loved me it felt like she drugged me all the things that i wanted to say all came out ugly in the heat of the moment the curl of her lips it consumed me and then all that was left was to slip off her dress and we'll figure it out in the morning when a woman tells you that she loves you you believe her when a woman tells you that she loves you you know you're a wanted man take some time to think about what you cannot live without you won't have it all figured out you just love her best you can

In the worst case scenario, This bottle gets empty before my heart is I’ve been drinking the ice melt Seeing your brown eyes Tasting your lipstick Pour me another one Two fingers then two more I’m taking the high road Straight down to the floor I’ve got a bottle of whiskey Only got half of one now A bottle of whiskey And I’ve been drinking my heart out I heard scotch is from Scotland Bourbon, Kentucky, Canadian rye You said it was over You said you were leaving Leaving me high and dry Pour me another one Two fingers then two more I’m taking the high road Straight down to the floor I’ve got a bottle of whiskey Only got half of one now A bottle of whiskey And I’ve been drinking my heart out Oh, that first swallow How it burns in your throat When this bottle is empty Then maybe I won’t remember you’re gone Pour me another one...
