That cotton dress sure makes me guess
What’s goin’ on underneath
I like your style, come sit awhile
And order up somethin’ sweet

We’ll talk about what makes you proud
And maybe what makes you smile
I got a plan wanna’ hold your hand
And tell you what’s on my mind

You got every single thing I need
I just wanna’ take you home with me
Lemme’ show you baby what I mean
Pretty please

You don’t have to be alone tonight
Come with me I’m gonna’ treat you right
All you gotta’ do is step inside
Lemme’ give you a ride

You got the moves, oh yes you do
That spin my head around
I know a place that’ll put a smile on your face
We’ll be the talk of the town

You got every single thing I need
I just wanna’ take you home with me
Lemme’ show you baby what I mean
Pretty please

You don’t have to be alone tonight
Come with me I’m gonna’ treat you right
All you gotta’ do is step inside
Lemme’ give you a ride

Don’t matter where you’re from
Or what you’re sippin’ on
Somethin’ ‘bout this just feels right

We can dance the night away
‘Til the stars all start to fade
And I’ll watch the sun come up in your eyes

Too High To Cry

Out here alone under the stars
Turn off the headlights find somewhere to park
Light up and lay down empty my lungs
Eyes in the distance heart in the trunk

Untie the laces kick off my shoes
Just like the night I’m all black and blue
Reach for the bottle drown out the pain
Me and my memories fading away

Nowhere to run nothing to lose
I know what I’ve done why I don’t have you
Can’t seem to find a goddamn to spare
Too high to cry too drunk to care

Can’t say I’m proud of what I’ve become
A damn fool layin’ here stupid and stunned
Now you’re gone there ain’t shit else to do
Screwed myself good amen that’s the truth

Nowhere to run nothing to lose
I know what I’ve done why I don’t have you
Can’t seem to find a goddamn to spare
Too high to cry too drunk to care

So dear God if you’re up in the clouds
Come and save me I’m here on the ground
I surrender it’s too late to lie
Maybe I need you just for tonight

Tough

Sometimes late at night I curse your name
Guess some things never change
Half an empty bed where the words start makin’ sense
Rememberin’ what you used to say

All these memories comin’ back
Like a tidal wave inside
Way it felt when you held me I could tell
That would be the last time

I’m not the same without your love
Couldn’t keep you it ain’t no wonder why
Something’s changin’ in my heart
I been thinkin’ ‘bout how tough you were
For leavin’ before you treated me unkind

Do it different if I could
Gave it all I don’t care how it looked
Saw it comin’ clear as day and you left me anyway
Hope you know I understood

I’m not the same without your love
Couldn’t keep you it ain’t no wonder why
Something’s changin’ in my heart
I been thinkin’ ‘bout how tough you were
For leavin’ before you treated me unkind

One fine day I will be a stronger man
Carry more than my own weight
Wish we met when I was better but it’s best I understand
You made me who I am today
