Long Stretch Of Love

You're hit then miss, you're fire and ice
You're water and whiskey burn
We kiss, we fight, make up our mind
You're a blessing and a curse

But I don't ever wanna break this chain
I don't ever wanna walk away
Cause I ain't ever gonna find another lover
Who'll make me feel this way

Over and over and over, we say that we're through
But I come right back to you

There's a long stretch of love coming down the line
Have you wrapped that won't ever roll in
Baby, you'll be mine
I'll be right here beside you when these good times get tough
Baby, we're in for a long stretch of love

You lift me up, you bring me down
You make me feel alive
You send my heart in overdrive
Every time you kill the lights

Over and over and over, we play this game
Win or lose, we'll never change

There's a long stretch of love coming down the line
Have you wrapped that won't ever roll in
Baby, you'll be mine
I'll be right here beside you when these good times get tough
Baby, we're in for a long stretch of love

Long stretch of love, long stretch of love, long stretch of love
Over and over and over, we play this game
Win or lose, we'll never change

There's a long stretch of love coming down the line
Have you wrapped that won't ever roll in
Baby, you'll be mine
I'll be right here beside you when these good times get tough
Baby, we're in for a long stretch of love

Long stretch of love
Long stretch of love
Long stretch of love

I don't ever wanna break this chain
I don't ever wanna walk away

Long stretch of love

Bartender

8 o'clock on Friday night I'm still at home
All my girls just keep on blowing up my phone
Saying come on he ain't worth the pain
Do what you gotta do to forget his name

Now there's only one thing left for me to do
Slip on my favorite dress and sky high leather boots
Check the mirror one last time
And kiss the past goodbye

What I'm really needing now
Is a double shot of Crown
Chase that disco ball around
'Til I don't remember
Go until they cut me off
Wanna get a little lost
In the noise, in the lights

Hey bartender pour 'em hot tonight
'Til the party and the music and the truth collide
Bring it 'til his memory fades away
Hey bartender

Tonight I'll let a stranger pull me on the floor
Spin me 'round and let him buy a couple more
But before it goes too far
I'll let him down easy
'Cause tonight it's all about
Dancing with my girls to the DJ
Put that song on replay

What I'm really needing now
Is a double shot of Crown
Chase that disco ball around
'Til I don't remember
Go until they cut me off
Wanna get a little lost
In the noise, in the lights

Hey bartender pour 'em hot tonight
'Til the party and the music and the truth collide
Bring it 'til his memory fades away
Hey bartender

I'm feeling that buzz
I'm ready to rock
Ain't no way I'm gonna tell you to stop
So pour that thing up to the top
I'm coming in hot

Hey bartender
What I'm really needing now
Is a double shot of Crown
Chase that disco ball around
'Til I don't remember
Go until they cut me off
Wanna get a little lost
In the noise, in the lights

Hey bartender pour 'em hot tonight
'Til the party and the music and the truth collide
Bring it 'til his memory fades away
Hey bartender
Hey bartender

Lie With Me

I felt this coming for a month or two
You don't look at me like you used to do
So when you leave it's going to be too soon
Give me a minute, while we're still in it

Lie with me, hold me like you need it
Kiss me like you're loving only me tonight
Make me feel like it ain't over
Go a little slower, baby, one last time
It ain't the truth that's gonna set me free
Come on, come on, lie with me

Go put your favorite MoTown record on
Do what we need to feel it all night long
Make me believe you ain't already gone
Let's make our last time, our best time

Lie with me, hold me like you need it
Kiss me like you're loving only me tonight
Make me feel like it ain't over
Go a little slower, baby, one last time
It ain't the truth that's gonna set me free
Come on, come on, lie with me

Baby lie with me

Love me like you need, like you really
You owe me that much now
Don't leave me here with nothing
Give me something, baby what's the rush now?

Lie with me, hold me like you need it
Kiss me like you're loving only me tonight
Make me feel like it ain't over
Go a little slower, baby, one last time

Lie with me, hold me like you need it
Kiss me like you're loving only me tonight
Make me feel like it ain't over
Go a little slower, baby, one last time
It ain't the truth that's gonna set me free
Come on, come on, lie with me

Freestyle

We gonna do this thing?
Well, come on then!

River road, Chevy van, cherry classic coke can
Rolling on the floorboard; Fleetwood, Macklemore
Coming out the speakers, spilling on the t-shirts
Getting loud like I'm standing in the bleachers
Creek bank, tire swing, peeling off her blue jeans
Skinny deep sugar, fish a couple of new things

Hey, there ain't nothing wrong
Just making it up as we go along
Find a little rock 'n' roll hallelujah
Throw your hands up high
If the spirit moves ya, babe
Singing hey, hey, hey
We can do it old school, ABC style
Maybe we can go a little wild and freestyle

A summer jam mixtape, vodka in your lemonade
(Alright, alright) like McConaughey
White vinyl, gypsy revival
Traveling through the middle of the belt of the bible
Hula girl grass skirt shaking on the dashboard
Where we're going we don't need no passport

Hey, there ain't nothing wrong
Just making it up as we go along
Find a little rock 'n' roll hallelujah
Throw your hands up high
If the spirit moves ya, babe
Singing hey, hey, hey
We can do it old school, ABC style
Maybe we can go a little wild and freestyle

Oh, some of us like to watch and some like to dance
Though we all wake up with the same stamp on our hands
Counting stars and counting cars and just counting miles
Doing it freestyle, you style, me style
Ain't got nowhere to be child

Hey, there ain't nothing wrong
Just making it up as we go along
Find a little rock 'n' roll hallelujah
Throw your hands up high
If the spirit moves ya, babe
Singing hey, hey, hey
We can do it old school, ABC style
Maybe we can go a little wild and freestyle
Oh, you can count it all, baby 1, 2, 3, child
Maybe we can go a little wild and freestyle

Down South

I was born, I was blessed
Right place, right time, I guess
Ain't no good reason why I left
Except to run and roam

Would you take me back and take me in?
Let me be your child again
Kiss my cheek, forgive my sins
Let me call you home

Oh I may stay here for a while

If I'm gonna find, gonna find on top
I'm gonna drive, gonna find a small town
South is where my momma lives
And where my little piece of heaven is
And I'm gonna dream, gonna dream of your face
I'm gonna go, gonna go to that place
And figure out what I lost and found
Down South

Religion and me don't always agree but I sure love my Maker
Sounds just like a gospel song when I sing my little prayer
Got rocks in my shoes, holes in my soul
And I'm covered in dirt from head to toe
From walking along this winding road that brought me back to here

Oh I may stay here for a while

If I'm gonna find, gonna find on top
I'm gonna drive, gonna find a small town
South is where my momma lives
And where my little piece of heaven is
And I'm gonna dream, gonna dream of your face
I'm gonna go, gonna go to that place
And figure out what I lost and found
Down South

Oooh, Na na na na na na
Ooooh, Na na na

Oh I may stay here for a while

If I'm gonna find, gonna find on top
I'm gonna drive, gonna find a small town
South is where my momma lives
And where my little piece of heaven is
And I'm gonna dream, gonna dream of your face
I'm gonna go, gonna go to that place
And figure out what I lost and found
Down South

Oooh, Na na na na na na
Ooooh, Na na na

Down south, morning race
Down south, where I learnt to pray
Down south, is where I sing
Down south [x2]

Rocks in my shoes, holes in my soul
I'm covered in dirt from head to toe.

One Great Mystery

I don't know how many stars fill the sky
I know we're here, but I don't know why
Maybe there's some other life out there
But as long as you're here with me, baby, I don't really care

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

Don't know what happens when we leave this world
But I know I'll go right on loving you girl
I'll close my eyes and drift off into the blue
And if I go first, I will wait for you

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

I guess I'll never really know
How I deserve someone that loves me so

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

Sounded Good At The Time

Standing by the door checking my hair
Waiting on you to take me nowhere
We were always looking for a rock and roll Saturday night
We're sitting on hold with a radio station
Listen all night to hear my dedication
A song to tell the whole town you were mine

We sing, like we wrote every word to the whole damn thing
Like nothing would ever change and we danced
Like time was really slipping through our hands
Oh, when you said I love you, you might have been lying
But it sure sounded good at the time

Just a hand me down Pontiac
See how many friends we could pile in the back
Saved all summer for a ticket on the front row
Didn't have a plan and we ran out of money
Car broke down but it's still kind of funny
Cause we hitched a ride with some hippy guy
And barely made it to the show

We sang, like we wrote every word to the whole damn thing
Like nothing would ever change and we danced
Like time was really slipping through our hands
Made it back alive, made up a good lie
But it sure sounded good at the time

We did some wrong, but we did it right
But it sure sounded so good at the time
You were mine, alright, whoa oh, alright

We sing, like we wrote every word to the whole damn thing
Like nothing would ever change and we danced
Like time was really slipping through our hands
So we'd never say goodbye, sure sounded good at the time

It's a melody, on my mind
So we'd never say goodbye
We sing on and on and on (on and on)

She Is

She hails from Boston
She hates the sound of goodbyes, wait
She loves Sundays and champagne
She can't stand the winter
She can't stand anything that she can't change
Oh, that she can't change

She is whatever she wants to be
She is a little of everything
Mixed up, so tough in a beautiful way
She's got the world in her fingertips
And she makes beauty look effortless
And I want everything she is, she is, she is.
I want everything she is

Well, we talk for hours
But she wrote the book on how to get nowhere
Don't matter what I say
I could buy her flowers
That's just too cliché to impress a girl like her
But you know I kinda like it that way

She is whatever she wants to be
She is a little of everything
Mixed up, so tough in a beautiful way
She's got the world in her fingertips
And she makes beauty look effortless
And I want everything she is, she is, she is

She is all I think about
And I can't do without
The good, the bad, the somewhere in-between
Oh, cause I want everything

She is whatever she wants to be
She is a little of everything
Mixed up, so tough in a beautiful way
She's got the world in her fingertips
And she makes beauty look effortless
And I want everything she is, she is, she is.
I want everything she is, she is, she is.

Mixed up, so tough in a beautiful way
She is a little of everything
And i can't gen enough

She hails from Boston
She hates the sound of goodbyes, wait

Damn You Seventeen

I still smell the smoke, I still taste the Crown
I still feel the vinyl of the backseat
With the windows halfway down
Yeah, I still hear "Pour Some Sugar On Me" in the tape deck
With both of us singing along
And I still hear me saying, "Baby, not yet, not yet"

We talk about our memory
Damn, girl, you put a few on me, on me

Love pulled out like a limo onto the highway after the prom
Time ran down like a scoreboard on the last hail mary bomb
And my heart's still stuck at a stoplight
With you sitting there next to me
And the red light won't turn green
Yeah, it won't turn green
Damn you, seventeen
Damn you, seventeen

I still smell your hair, I still taste the salt
Mixed with the cherry on your lips
Afraid your momma might come home
I still see all of your vintage rock and roll t-shirts
Hanging on your closet door
Back when we really didn't know what we were
What we were

We talk about our heartache
I'm still wearing out the replay, replay

Love pulled out like a limo onto the highway after the prom
Time ran down like a scoreboard on the last hail mary bomb
And my heart's still stuck at a stoplight
With you sitting there next to me
And the red light won't turn green
Yeah, it won't turn green
Damn you, seventeen
Damn you, seventeen

Well, I want to call
But I bet your number's changed a couple times
A couple towns ago, but I can't let you go

Love pulled out like a limo onto the highway after the prom
Time ran down like a scoreboard on the last hail mary bomb
And my heart's still stuck at a stoplight
With you sitting there next to me
And the red light won't turn green
No, it won't turn green
Damn you, seventeen
Damn you, seventeen

747

I could hear it through the line
I could tell from the crack in her voice, the static the noise
She leaving on the night,
when it comes to you, Ill do whatever I gotta do

I'm looking out for the window seat
halfway back about 23
man I wish that I could fly this thing
give a little more gas a little more speed

This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough
This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough
every minute is wasting time
she gets a little bit closer to saying goodbye
This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough

I could use a drink right now
Ive got my head in the clouds, thinking about
the second that the wheels touch down
and my feet hit the ground to run to your house,
knock on the door, kiss you right on the mouth

This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough
This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough
every minute is wasting time
she gets a little bit closer to saying goodbye
This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough

I'm looking out for the window seat
halfway back bout 23
man I wish that I could fly this thing
give a little more gas just a little more speed

This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough
This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough
every minute is wasting time
she gets a little bit closer to saying goodbye
This 747 747 This 747 cant go fast enough fast enough

Just A Girl

Boy, you must have come up short tonight
Cause I'm always your consolation prize
Usually I fix my hair, put on my coat
And show up at your door, but no more

Now I know I'm just another one of your Friday nights
But I'm no pastime, this is gonna be the last time
Just a call when there's nowhere else to fall
Just a number on your wall and a pretty dress and curves
To you I'm just a girl, to you I'm just a girl

I was always taught to sit up straight
Find a man before it gets too late
Give him time to make his mind
But I can't be the one you string along
Like some old sad song

Now I know I'm just another one of your Friday nights
But I'm no pastime, this is gonna be the last time
Just a call when there's nowhere else to fall
Just a number on your wall and a pretty dress and curves
To you I'm just a girl, to you I'm just a girl

To you I'm just a girl
Talking through the static, just a girl
To you I'm just dramatic, just a girl
Just a silly lil thing, that's all you've ever seen
When there's so much more to me

Now I know I'm just another one of your Friday nights
But I'm no pastime, this is gonna be the last

Now I know I'm just another one of your Friday nights
But I'm no pastime, this is gonna be the last time
Just a call when there's nowhere else to fall
Just a number on your wall and a pretty dress and curves
To you I'm just a girl, to you I'm just a girl

Slow Rollin'

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Everybody's got addictions, for me its gotta be you
So slip into something that don't take long
To slip in and bring me those baby blues,
El Dorado shined up, got a little extra cash
And a quarter tank of premium
Lets see how long it lasts

Baby jump in my Cadillac
You can slide in the middle or climb in the back
We can miss all over the FM dial
Sweet home country, Destiny's Child
Light turns red light turns green
Sneak a little something in between
Steering wheel's steady when you're ready girl

We can put a new spin on these wheels
Leanin' to an old school vinyl groove
Talkin' bout how damn good it feels
Street lights glowing,
Slow rollin' this town with you

I can already hear you singing
I can already see your smile
Route forty-four leanin' on the door
Kick back crusin' down dine and shore,
Right passed the dollar general
Down to the end of the strip
Make a "U"-ey, hang a lou-ie
Feel that automatic shift

Baby jump in my Cadillac
Slide in the middle or climb in the back
We can dance all over the FM dial
Sweet Home country, Destiny's Child
Light turns red and light turns green
Sneak a little something in between
Steerin' wheels steady when you're ready girl

We can put a new spin on these wheels
Leanin' to an old school vinyl groove
Talkin' bout how damn good it feels
Street lights glowin',
Slow rollin' this town with you

Baby jump in my Cadillac
Slide in the middle or climb in the back
Steerin' wheels steady when you're ready girl
We can put a new spin on these wheels
Leanin' to an old school vinyl groove
Talkin' bout how damn good it feels
Street lights glowin',
Slow rollin' this town with you

Baby jump in my Cadillac
Slide in the middle or climb in the back
We can dance all over the FM dial
Sweet Home country, Destiny's Child
Light turns red light turns green
Sneak a little something in between
Steerin' wheels's steady when you're ready girl
Slow rollin' this town with you

All Nighter

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I'ma walking out of my front door
I'ma jumping in my car
Take another left on mainstream
Heading right to where you are
I'ma rolling down my window
I'ma turn the radio on
Find a little spot to let go
Get a little good time gone
'Cause this is an

All nighter
I get lost with you
Running through every red lighter
A falling and feeling like a star
Right out midnight skyer
Let the time fly by
It's not in the end
Taking a chance
Starting the fire
This is an all nighter

We're gonna take that sunset
Make it turn the blue sky red
We can worry about tomorrow
or watch her silly lips instead
Get a little backroad busy
Let the moon shine on us
Get a little love drunk dizzy
'Till the sun still back up
'Cause we just can't get enough
'Cause this is an

All nighter
I get lost with you
Running through every red lighter
A falling and feeling like a star
Right out midnight skyer
Let the time fly by
It's not in the end
Taking a chance
Starting the fire
This is an all nighter

Oh, Baby

Take another sip talking 'till two
'Cause this is an

All nighter

I'ma walking out of my front door
I'ma jumping in my car

Falling For You

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I hear my heart like the beat of a drum.
You take me up to a high I've never known.
There ain't no way we can slow this down.
This train's too fast to ever turn it back around.

I don't wanna think too much.
Let me get lost in your soul.
Wanna feel that freedom lettin' go.

So hold me now.
I'm fallin', I'm fallin'.
Just lay me down and steal my heart tonight.
There's fire in your eyes.
There's magic in your touch.
I still want you to stay.
But it feels like us so.
Hold me now, I'm fallin', I'm fallin' for you.

You kiss my lips.
I can feel that spark.
And that's all it takes.
Shadows dancin' in the dark.

I don't wanna think too much.
Let's follow where it leads.
Just as long as you're right next to me.

So hold me now.
I'm fallin', I'm fallin'.
Just lay me down and steal my heart tonight.
There's fire in your eyes.
There's magic in your touch.
I still want you to stay.
But it feels like us so.
Hold me now, I'm fallin', I'm fallin' for you.

Fallin' for you fast.
Somethin' like a dream.
I want you so bad it's hard to even breathe.

So hold me now.
I'm fallin', I'm fallin'.
Just lay me down and steal my heart tonight.
There's fire in your eyes.
There's magic in your touch.
I still want you to stay.
But it feels like us so.
Hold me now, I'm fallin', I'm fallin' for you.

Fallin' for you.
I'm fallin'.
I'm fallin' for you.
Ooo oo oo oo
