    Outta My Mind

    The day that I left

    And I slammed the door on the plans that we made.

    I walked away.

    How could I’d known that I’d live to wonder if everything under the sun,

    Could suddenly fade?

    Then it all turned to gray. And you didn’t save me.

     

    Now the worlds gone crazy and I’m just outta my mind again.

    I’m out of my mind.

    Cause theres things I remember, that make me wish you were mine.

    And I wish you were mine.

     

    I’m outside your house

    I’m not waiting though.

    But if nobodies watching, I wanna hold you,

    Until I’m ready to let you go.

     

    Chorus

     

    I find it strange that separated

    I love what, I traded in

    And everyone I know goes,

    We told you so.

     

    Chorus

    Wasted and Sober

    She said boy you better straighten out.

    Been living up high, Lord knows I’m coming back down.

    That’s the trouble with a lot of regrets,

    You’re further out, the closer in you get.

     

    So take your time, if you’re going out.

    Won’t say come back, cause I don’t want you around.

    I’m not a find, I will let you down.                                       

    Make amends, and tell your friends, how it all plays out.

     

    I said I’m just getting over October, the lines that I showed ya,

    It kills me sometimes, when light fills the room.

    I swear over and over, wasted and sober, it kills me sometimes.

     

    Come on. Come on. Come on. You come on strong.

    If love is like a riot, then my heart is like a bomb.

    And it wrecks my days. And it shakes my nights.

    Got everything I wanted, I still won’t give up the fight.

     

    Chorus

     

    Everything stated, I don’t wanna state.

    Everything changes, I don’t wanna change.

    But if you’ll stay, I want you to stay, with me.

     

    And she said boy you better straighten out.

    Been living up high, Lord knows I’m coming back down.

    I’m coming.

    365

    This time, I’m putting it on that line.

    Got nothing to lose, but I’m laying it all down.

     

    Red lined. Back roads and blurry eyes.

    I just get so bored sometimes, living in this town.

     

    She said don’t you dare slow down.

     

    All those dreams that I’m chasing,

    I’m always chasing,

    Whether you are right or wrong.

    (You’re wrong. You’re wrong.)

    All those comets outpacing,

    The moon and a southern station

    Not calling on the phone.

    (Come on. Come on.)

     

    Read my mind, nothing but smoke and I’ve

    Been taking those exit signs, that go round and round.

     

    One headlight, pointed into the night,

    We might be wrong or right. We’re going to find out.

     

    She said don’t you dare slow down.

     

    Chorus

     

    Days go by, three hundred sixty five. And it ain’t slowing down.

    I’ll stay by your side, if you stay by my side…

     

    And she says don’t you dare slow down.

     

    Chorus

    Carbon

    She set off on a mission back to Carbon,

    Pointed that old truck straight back home.

    She said, I just might be ok to make it on the road,

    But I’m not gonna make it on my own.

     

    The road is long, she rambled on to change the scenery,

     And justify the same old fears.

    Like everyone she’d love to meet, who’d come, and go, so easily,

    And she says, hey I’m still here.

     

    So please don’t leave,

    Just tell me that you love me,

    And I promise I’ll believe you.

    And please don’t go,

    Cause I need someone to hold me,

    She said, baby you don’t know me,

    I’m not like you. I’m only passing through.

     

    And its la, de, da, de, da,

    If there’s something that you want.

    She’ll take nothing if you don’t.

    She said do, do, do, do, do

    Just take me if you want me.

    I’ll go anywhere with you.

     

    Chorus

     

    She set off on a mission back to Carbon,

    Pointed that old truck straight back home.

    On That Road

    As I was driving home, turned on the radio, and I was back in ’99. A winding old back road, a country song I know, goes “It kills me sometimes.”

     

    As I was driving home, turned on the radio, and they were playing you this time. And I remembered note for note, you said “Don’t take it slow,” and I went out of my mind. On that road.

     

    We had a lot of hopes and dreams. I still don’t know what it all means, but the stars were out that night. So make a wish, don’t tell your friends, cause I don’t know how this one ends. And so it goes, in this life.

     

    Chorus

     

    Do you remember?

    Cause I remember.

    Do you remember?

    Cause I remember.

     

    Chorus
