Feel your teardrops on my seats the hurt when you stomp your feet
Desperation hittin’ second gear
So you’re gettin’ outta’ Dodge lightin’ up and cursin’ God
Leavin’ her in my rear view mirror

She hurt you pretty bad I know you don’t deserve it
On the other hand she might be worth it

We’ve been around the block a time or two
I’ve seen you lost and watched you push on through
Now I can’t tell you what to do or steer this wheel for you
But before you walk won’t you go around the block
Another time or two

The way she cranks my radio always spills her Diet Coke
Left my windows down when it was rainin’
Slammed those shotgun brakes like the daggum interstate
That backseat drivin’ really drove me crazy

Oh but she sure made you feel amazin’

We’ve been around the block a time or two
I’ve seen you lost and watched you push on through
Now I can’t tell you what to do or steer this wheel for you
But before you walk won’t you go around the block
Another time or two

I’ll take you anywhere you wanna’ go
Back to her arms or down this lonely road
God knows we’ve been that way before

We’ve been around the block a time or two
I’ve seen you lost and watched you push on through
Now I can’t tell you what to do or steer this wheel for you
But before you walk won’t you go around the block
Another time or two
