  • Wasted Time
    The rain is coming down tonight
    I'm smiling looking at this photograph
    I hear that song and I'm flying right back to when we had it made
    Every Friday night when the sun went down
    We'd be running them streets like we owned the town

    And I just can't let it go, no, I just can't let it go
    I wonder if you ever think about it like I do
    Seven kids on a two lane road
    Had "The Guns" on the radio
    After all this time it still feels so good

    When I think about those summer nights
    Singing out the window, on the back roads, "Sweet Child O' Mine"
    Sipping on the Loko's spark a light
    Ain't it funny how the best days of my life
    Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time?
    Swinging on the line
    Living all that wasted time

    Out of nowhere it slipped away
    And the rope by the river hangs silently
    And the town that we knew ain't nothing like it used to be
    I, I can't explain
    They took all the color from the picture frame
    And the days got sold to the grid and the game

    But I just can't let it go, no, I just can't let it go
    I wonder if you ever think about it like I do
    Seven kids on a two lane road
    We had "The Guns" on the radio
    After all this time it still feels so good

    Repeat Chorus

    Summer dresses drying out on the hood of the car
    Only music that we had was out the left speaker
    We were living every second 'til the time ran out
    We had nothing but we had it all

    When I think about those summer nights
    Sneaking out the window, running back roads, your hand in mine
    We were going nowhere, we were so alive
    Ain't it crazy how the best days of my life
    Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time?
    We were swinging out on the line
    Living all that wasted time
  • Habit of You
    I’m no stranger to the love of a lowly vice
    I drowned my liver and I gambled with my pride
    I’ve had a bad case of addicted phases
    Moving from one to another
    But you got me changing my ways
    I’m breaking all the habits I’ve made

    I could make a habit of you
    Waking up in my bed
    Staying up till two
    ‘Cause you’re stuck in my head
    It’s a symphony you sing to me
    When you call out my name
    I don’t know what else to do
    But make a habit of you
    Habit of you
    Habit of you

    Cut out the smokes and I stopped staying up all night
    I quit checkin’ my phone and I'm savin’ my dimes
    ‘Cause it’s a wild thing but you got me jonesin’
    Need another taste of you
    I don’t think I could quit you now
    You’re all that I can think about

    Repeat Chorus

    Alive
    Something ‘bout the look in your eyes
    Can never get enough of this
    High
    Maybe I’m an addict but I just gotta have it
    I just gotta have you
    Oh, it’s chemical, it’s physical, it’s spiritual
    It’s magical, it’s lyrical this high
    Maybe I’m an addict but I just gotta have it
    I just gotta have you

    Repeat Chorus
  • Sun Don't Let Me Down
    Keith Urban, Mr. Worldwide
    They say life is short
    So, I'ma live it up
    Tonight it's going down
    'Til the sun comes up

    2 a.m. and I'm about to lose my mind
    The way she's moving that black dress
    Like her hips are on fire
    There in the headlights
    Dancin' like she's in a movie scene
    To die for and it's killin' me
    Stars are out But they're fadin' fast
    Gotta make it last
    And I'm so close to heaven
    So, just hold your light
    Cause I need the night

    Sun don't let me down
    She's almost in my arms right now
    I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
    But I need the moonlight to do my thing
    Sun don't let me down
    Don't let me down

    Keith Urban, Mr. Worldwide
    They say life is short
    So, I'ma live it up
    Tonight it's going down
    'Til the sun comes up

    2 a.m. and I'm about to lose my mind
    The way she's moving that black dress
    Like her hips are on fire
    There in the headlights
    Dancin' like she's in a movie scene
    To die for and it's killin' me
    Stars are out But they're fadin' fast
    Gotta make it last
    And I'm so close to heaven
    So, just hold your light
    Cause I need the night

    Sun don't let me down
    She's almost in my arms right now
    I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
    But I need the moonlight to do my thing
    Sun don't let me down
    Don't let me down

    Repeat Chorus

    Life is short so I'm livin' it up
    Tonight it's goin' down, yeah, 'til the sun comes up
    Then we do it all again, 'cause we ain't givin' a "wha"
    And all the women at the party givin' it up
    Time is money and I ain't wastin' no time
    So, fill my cup up with Voli, water and lime
    Take a shot for the soldiers in the field
    Thanks for the freedom and that's for real
    Tonight we're getting hammered, banged-up and tanked
    That means get off the chain, let loose and drank
    Mommy wanna play the adult version of Truth-or-Dare
    So, I took her to the back and pulled her hair, yeah

    Repeat Chorus

    She's almost in my arms right now
    I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
    But I need the moonlight to do my thing
    Sun don't let me down, no, oh
    Don't let me down
    Don't let me down
    Don't come around
    Stay underground
    No, no, don't let me down
  • Gettin' In The Way
    Moonlight, it’s gotta be close to midnight
    Where did it go
    All the time, all the friends left waiting
    Never made it ‘cause we kept making out

    In the driveway, who would’ve thought in the driveway
    That we would get lost
    In that dashboard radio static
    Makin’ our own kind of magic

    Oooo, oh, I said, thirty more minutes, thirty minutes ago
    Oooo, oh, but we’re still right here and you already know that

    I should leave, put the car in drive babe
    But your kiss keeps tellin’ me to stay
    Yeah, your lips keep gettin’ in the way
    You know we should’ve called it a night, babe
    But goodbye’s something I can’t say
    Yeah, your lips keep gettin’ in the way (gettin’ in the way)

    Windows, we already fogged up the windows
    We’re writing our names on the glass
    As the clock keeps ticking
    Sun’ll be up any minute

    Oooo, oh, I said, thirty more minutes, thirty minutes ago
    Oooo, oh, but we’re still right here and you already know that

    Repeat Chorus

    ‘Cause goodbye’s something I, something I can’t say
    Yeah, your lips keep, keep
    Gettin’ in the way

    Repeat Chorus
  • Blue Ain't Your Color
    I can see you over there
    Staring at your drink
    Watchin' that ice sink
    All alone tonight

    And chances are
    You're sittin' here in this bar
    'Cause he ain't gonna treat you right
    Well, it's probably not my place
    But I'm gonna say it anyway
    'Cause you look like
    You haven't felt the fire
    Had a little fun
    Hadn't had a smile in a little while
    Baby

    Blue looks good on the sky
    Looks good on that neon buzzin' on the wall
    But, darling, it don't match your eyes
    I'm tellin' you
    You don't need that guy
    It's so black and white
    He's stealin' your thunder
    Baby, blue ain't your color

    I'm not tryna
    Be another just
    Pick you up
    Kinda guy
    Tryna drink you up
    Tryna take you home
    But I just don't understand
    How another man
    Can take your sun
    And turn it ice cold

    Well, I've had enough to drink
    And it's makin'
    Me think that I just might
    Tell you if I were a painter I wouldn't change ya
    I'd just paint you bright
    Baby

    Repeat Chorus 2x

  • The Fighter feat. Carrie Underwood
    I know he hurt you
    Made you scared of love, too scared to love
    He didn't deserve you
    Cause your precious heart is a precious heart

    He didn't know what he had and I thank God, oh, oh, oh
    And it's gonna take just a little time
    But you're gonna see that I was born to love you

    What if I fall?
    I won't let you fall
    What if I cry?
    I'll never make you cry
    And if I get scared?
    I'll hold you tighter
    When they're tryna get to you, baby, I'll be the fighter
    What if I fall?
    I won't let you fall
    What if I cry?
    I promise I'll never make you cry
    And if I get scared?
    I'll hold you tighter
    When they're tryna get to you, baby, I'll be the fighter

    Look in the mirror
    You're beautiful, so beautiful
    I'm here to remind you
    You're my only one, let me be the one

    To heal all the pain that he put you through
    It's a love like you never knew
    Just let me show you

    Repeat Chorus

    I wanna believe that you got me, baby
    I swear I do from now until the next life
    I wanna love, wanna give you all my heart

    Repeat Chorus
  • Break On Me
    There'll be days your heart don't wanna beat
    You pray more than you breathe
    And you just wanna fall to pieces
    And nights, with 2 AM calls
    Where dreams become walls
    And you just need a break

    Break on me
    Shatter like glass
    Come apart in my hands
    Take as long as it takes, girl
    Break on me
    Put your head on my chest
    Let me help you forget
    When your heart needs to break
    Just break on me

    Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, ooh ahh

    There'll be times when someone you know
    Becomes someone you knew
    But you'd do anything to change it
    And words you wanna take back
    But you know you can't
    When the page just won't turn
    And it still hurts

    Repeat Chorus

    Oh, when you need somebody
    When you need somebody right now
    You're where I'll be

    Repeat Chorus

  • Boy Gets A Truck
    It ain't a story as old as time
    Just as old as when they first
    Rolled off the assembly line
    Everybody knows how it goes
    Once upon a time, four wheels rolled and a

    Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl
    Girl gets a midnight feeling he's the one
    One night turns to love
    Love turns into one knee down
    Down payment on a 3 bedroom house
    Filled with the sound of little feet
    Then you blink and he's asking for the keys to pick her up
    Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl

    It's freedom flying down a two-lane
    Young love steaming up the windows
    ‘Cause it can't wait
    She's whispering in your ear
    While you're tryin' to keep it on the road
    It's been goin' on for years

    Repeat Chorus

    Yeah, she'll slide on over
    Put her head on your shoulder
    While the wheels keep turnin' the world
    A boy gets a truck

    Repeat Chorus
  • Your Body

    All the burnin’ lights
    Go rushin’ by
    I’m drivin’ like a wild man outta the city
    Gotta leave the madness behind
    This jungle world gets so insane
    It’s a damned if you do
    Damned if you don’t kinda deal
    In this crazy game

    Shinin’ in the darkness
    Brighter than the sun
    You fall into me
    And we are one

    And everything in the world is right
    Stars align whenever my body
    Is touching your body
    And when I got your skin on mine
    Fear gives way to heaven inside me
    Whenever my body is touching your body

    Your slight of hand
    And your fire lips
    Like a man with a habit
    All I know’s I gotta have it
    Yeah, the magic in your fingertips
    The things you do
    And the love we make
    Underneath the covers
    You carry me away

    Repeat Chorus

    They say, nothing lasts forever
    We make that so untrue
    When forever’s come and gone
    I’ll still be holding on to you

    Repeat Chorus
  • That Could Still Be Us
    Wide awake staring at my phone
    Who's gonna give in first?
    We don't have to be all alone
    We don't have to feel this hurt
    ‘Member those nights in your driveway
    Feeling like the only ones left on earth
    And maybe I'm crazy
    But I think that maybe

    That could still be us
    'Cause it still is sometimes at night when my eyes are shut
    Wish I could say it don't get to me but it does
    And I know I probably think about you way too much
    But that's because
    That could still be us

    I went down to the riverbank
    Looked in the water and saw your face
    This small town summer wind
    Whispers all my mistakes
    ‘Member those nights in your backyard
    Making each other shake
    And lately it kills me
    And nothing can fill me
    'Cause

    Repeat Chorus
    That could still be us(x3)

    Tail lights fading in the dark
    I shoulda called out your name
    I go by there some nights and park
    Replay it all again
    What woulda been
    What shoulda been
    What was

    Repeat Chorus
    That could still be us(x3)
  • Worry 'Bout Nothin'
    Give me a hundred acres, cut a path through the long leaf pines
    A little piece of paper saying everything I see is mine
    As long as you're beside me, it's all the same when the daylight ends
    I ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again
    I ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again
    (Tryin' to) make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
    Do nothin', I don't really want to
    Tryin' to make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
    Do nothin' but spend a little time on you

    Chorus 1:
    You sittin' there lookin' all pretty
    In the sunset tree line half-drunk with me (and I)
    Love that feelin' when the smile starts kickin' in
    Ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again
    You sittin' there lookin' all pretty
    In the sunset tree line sparkin' up with me
    And I love that feelin' when the smile starts kickin' in
    I ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again

    I'll take a blue sky highway, Painted Desert to the Vegas strip
    Or a sleepy hometown with just one or two street lights lit
    Where the blacktop dies and the gravel begins
    Me and you skinny dippin' where the river bends
    Ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again
    I ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again

    Chorus 2:
    Paint the barn roof “See Rock City”
    Kickin' back just a couple of sunshine hippies
    Yeah, the way that you and the smoke and the whiskey blend
    Ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again
    Paint the barn roof “See Rock City”
    Kickin' back just a couple of sunshine hippies
    Yeah, the way that you and the smoke and the whiskey blend
    Ain't never gonna worry ‘bout nothin' again

    Repeat Chorus 2


    (Tryin' to) make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
    Do nothin', I don't really want to
    Tryin' to make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
    Do nothin' but spend a little time on you

    Repeat Chorus 1 and 2
