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

She hurt you more than once I know you deserve it
On the other hand she might be worth it

I’ve been around the block a time or two
Seen you lost and watched you push on through
I can’t tell you what to do or steer that wheel for you
But I’m hopin’ that you’ll slow down for a moment
Go around the block a time or two

The way she cranks my radio always spills her Diet Coke
Left my windows down when it was rainin’
Slamed those shotgun brakes got us lost on the interstate
Yeah that backseat drivin’ really drove me crazy

Oh but she sure made you feel amazin’

I’ve been around the block a time or two
Seen you lost and watched you push on through
I can’t tell you what to do or steer that wheel for you
But I’m hopin’ that you’ll slow down for a moment
Go around the block a 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

I’ve been around the block a time or two
Seen you lost and watched you push on through
I can’t tell you what to do or steer that wheel for you
But I’m hopin’ that you’ll slow down for a moment
Go around the block a time or two
