We Were Young EP Lyrics

We Were Young

Just sixteen, and kind of coy
You, you could light up the room not even trying
When we first went out, we walked by the river
I could see your breath
It feels like forever ago
We’d be cool with the cold just to be alone

Wish we could go

We were young and green, like the pine tree growing
In your parents yard, where I’d sneak over
From June until school was back, and it got cold
We were you and found love, and we didn’t hide it
Our friends talked shit, but we didn’t mind it
‘Cuz we knew, that we’d found the one, look how far we’ve come
Since we were young
Since we were young

Don’t like to go back, everything has changed
Our old school, don’t look the same
We went for a walk, down by the river
I could see your breath, it seem so familiar
Like that feeling I had when we met
I could never forget

We were young and green, like the pine tree growing
In your parents yard, where I’d sneak over
From June until school was back, and it got cold
We were you and found love, and we didn’t hide it
Our friends talked shit, but we didn’t mind it
‘Cuz we knew, that we’d found the one, look how far we’ve come
Since we were young
Since we were young

Since we were young
Since we were young
Since we were young
Since we were young

We were you and found love, and we didn’t hide it
Our friends talked shit, but we didn’t mind it
‘Cuz we knew, that we’d found the one, look how far we’ve come
Since we were young
Since we were young
Since we were young
Since we were young

Had Enough

I’ve given you too many chances

I’ve been played too long

If this is how it ends

Why drag me along

I say na na na na na

Been beggin you left and right

How many times do I have to ask?

Everytime I get on my knees I’m gettin kicked in the ass

I said Na na na na na

I’m not listening now

I think I’ve had enough

Don’t you worry cuz now

I’m thinking about my self

I’m not wasting my time

Not waiting on you no more

I feel a change coming on

Everyone needs a little love sometimes

You say it’s selfish to unwind

I’m playin your game feeling so behind

All I wanted was to make it though and

Get ahead and have a dream with you

I said Na na na na na

I’m not listening now

I think I’ve had enough

Don’t you worry cuz now

I’m thinking about my self

I’m not wasting my time

Not waiting on you no more

I feel a change coming on

Everyone needs a little love sometimes

I think I need to leave

Maybe you’re too good for me

But, I won’t make this mistake again

Lets just say our goodbyes

Forget about that one night

I think I’ve had enough

I think I need to leave

Maybe you’re too good for me

But, I won’t make this mistake again

Lets just say our goodbyes

Forget about that one night

I think I’ve had enough

Everyone needs a little love sometimes

Dirty Work

Hey, I was hoping for a minute of your time

Can I buy you a drink, cuz I got a lot weighing on my mind

Your face says, I can tell it’s got something to do with me and you

So I give it to you straight and I can tell that you’re acting confused

I know you’ve been running around

Looking for love in a different crowd

You try to turn it around

And push the blame back on me

I don’t give a what, what you say

You’re not looking out for me, anyway

So baby you do you

Let me tell you about me

I’m gonna be just fine

Tired of doing all your dirty work

You know I give you more than you deserve

As I’m laying in the mud

Just to keep your name from dragging around in the dirt

Thanks for hearing me out, I can see that it hurt

But I dont give a what

Hey, It seems we made a scene now that we’re through

But as long as there are eyes to have

Then you want them on you

I know you’ve been running around

Looking for love in a different crowd

You try to turn it around

And push the blame back on me

I don’t give a what, what you say

You’re not looking out for me, anyway

So baby you do you

Let me tell you about me

I’m gonna be just fine

Tired of doing all your dirty work

You know I give you more than you deserve

As I’m laying in the mud

Just to keep your name from dragging around in the dirt

Thanks for hearing me out, I can see that it hurt

But I dont give a what

You’re so desperate for attention

and I thought that I should mention

How we got to where we are

Yeah, these wounds will soon be scars

As I’m puking up my pride

That I swallowed with a smile for so long

I know that I’m not perfect

Yeah, so maybe we deserve it

But whats done is done

You went and you had your fun

And all I know is that these five words

are gonna set me free

I dont give a what

I dont give a what what

I dont give a what

I dont give a what what

I dont give a what

I dont give a what what

I dont give a what

I don’t give a what, what you say

You’re not looking out for me, anyway

So baby you do you

Let me tell you about me

I’m gonna be just fine

Tired of doing all your dirty work

You know I give you more than you deserve

As I’m laying in the mud

Just to keep your name from dragging around in the dirt

I dont give a what

I dont give a what what

I dont give a what

Life’s Too Short

I made a mistake just by trusting you

Sucked into your games and now I feel like a fool

I should have seen through

To see the real you

More of the same, since I let time go by

Got no one to blame buy my own stupid self

You never blame yourself

Seems to be a problem for you

Life’s Too Short

Don’t make it hard on yourself

Life’s too short

Stop blaming everybody else

Little lies,

Dry your eyes

Apologize

I don’t really mind you as a person but we don’t have to live this way

We don’t have to live this way, if you dont wanna

Life’s Too Short

Don’t make it hard on yourself

Life’s too short

Stop blaming everybody else

Life’s Too Short

Don’t make it hard on yourself

Life’s too short

Stop blaming everybody else

Lights On

I won’t lie it’s been a hell of a journey

Days go by I’m lucky to have you in my life

I like this feeling between us
Don’t know what I’d do without you cus
I’m a man without a plan without you in it

I sleep with the lights on baby
I know it drives you crazy
But your alarm will wake me up soon
This push and pull we’re caught in
Is this what we call lovin
Won’t you meet me in the middle

I won’t lie I’ve got something to tell ya

And days go by I’m lucky to have you every night

I like this feeling between us
Don’t know what I’d do without you cus
I’m a man without a plan without you in it

I sleep with the lights on baby
I know it drives you crazy
But your alarm will wake me up soon

This push and pull we’re caught in
Is this what we call lovin
Won’t you meet me in the middle

Oh, I know it’s wrong but I think it could be right

Oh I know it wrong but I tell you that I love you every night

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I like this feeling between us

I sleep with the lights on baby
I know it drives you crazy
But your alarm will wake me up soon

This push and pull we’re caught in
Is this what we call lovin
Won’t you meet me in the middle

I sleep with the lights on baby
I know it drives you crazy
But your alarm will wake me up soon

This push and pull we’re caught in
Is this what we call lovin
Won’t you meet me in the middle

Music In The Dark Lyrics

Breathe In

I’ve waited all my life for something great, got in my way of changing the world. But there was one night that your split second short sight blew me away and everything but right then was a blur.

Just breathe in. Close your eyes. Before this moment is gone. Take it in. ‘cause in life these moments don’t last long. Your world might even crumble by the end of this song. So breathe in.

It feels like yesterday that I had to play like a fool by the rules of the man but now I don’t give a damn. All these years flew by like a 4.1 forty, million miles, half a life and all the while I’m in a hurry to get me to this place that I don’t even know.

Just Breathe In. Close your eyes. Before this moment is gone. Take it in. ‘cause in life these moments don’t last long. Your world might even crumble by the end of this song. So breathe in.

Say My Name

I’ve walked for miles down dead end streets. I’ve worked long lonely nights for a rich man’s greed. I wouldn’t be surprised if I found my woman with another man’s name on her sleeve. That easy going 8-track mind, life loving mans dead and never coming back.

Say my name. And look over your shoulder. I had to change. ‘Cause the pain was only getting stronger.

Lived an honest life and all I got was old. I nearly broke my back to have all my riches stole. Don’t you be surprised if you find me fighting out of pride, dried blood on my sleeve. I’m a wide-eyed one-track mind mad rival. I think you better leave.

Say my name. And look over your shoulder. I had to change. ‘Cause the pain was only getting stronger.

Billboard

The roads are wet. Rain is pouring down. Got my wipers on. Man I love that sound. It’s been like this all afternoon. I get a billboard closer to you.

I’d like to think there’s a sea of pines maybe a mountain line, behind a million signs, blocking up my view. I get a billboard closer to you.

How could I wait until tomorrow? Your brown eyes keep me driving the whole night through. I’m just dying to get alone with you girl. With each song on the radio, I get a billboard closer to you.

Sitting at the bar and I’m feeling stuck. I’d rather pack my bags and throw them in my truck. Put this town in my rear-view. I get a billboard closer to you.

How could I wait until tomorrow? Your brown eyes keep me driving the whole night through. I’m just dying to get alone with you girl. With each song on the radio I get a billboard closer to you.

I’m gonna to wake you up, wake you up When I get home late. You know I drove nine hours down the interstate. Don’t be afraid girl when I walk into your room. There’s no more billboards between me and you.

How could I wait until tomorrow? Your brown eyes keep me driving the whole night through. I’m just dying to get alone with you girl. With each song on the radio I get a billboard closer to you.

Best Kept Regret

I saw you walk in ‘bout an hour ago. Your group of friends I bet they don’t even know me. You look my way like you think I should go. The nights so hot so why you acting so cold? Like yeah, yeah, yeah.

You’re holding back I see you check your phone. You know it’s me I said I miss you so bad. You’re typing back but try not to show it. A smile and a wink that says you don’t even know and I’m like yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Take me back back baby. Maybe you’ll remember. You were mine, back last December. You think it’s funny that I’m still your secret. Hit me up and I’ll be your best kept regret. Best kept regret.

You sneak away, I think I’ll take my shot now. My hands are shaking, and my guts in a knot. Aren’t you worried that we’re gonna get caught? You say, Shut up, do you want me or not? And I’m like yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Take me back back baby. Maybe you’ll remember. You were mine, back last December. You think it’s funny that I’m still your secret. Hit me up and I’ll be your best kept regret. Come on Baby.

Take me back back. Take me back back. Take me back back. Take me back back.

Take me back back baby. Maybe you’ll remember. You were mine, back last December. You think it’s funny that I’m still your secret. Hit me up and I’ll be your best kept regret.

House Party

Headlights and stars. Leaving the bar, headed home. Parked in the yard. Half a dozen cars. We’re not alone. Stepped in the front door there’s a party. Raise your glasses everybody.

Hey let’s dance. You can’t dance, clap your hands. House party, guitars strumming. I’m not done so there’s more coming. Hey get up. Kick the beat. Let me see you jump. All night, into the morning. You’re not done so let’s keep going now.

House is packed. Bonfire out back but it ain’t cold. Music is right. Tom Petty all night on the stereo. Looks like a night we won’t remember but we’ll never forget.

Hey let’s dance. You can’t dance, clap your hands. House party, guitar strumming. I’m not done so I’ll keep coming. Hey get up. Kick the beat. Let me see you jump. All night, into the morning. You’re not done so let’s keep going now.

Home from the bar, out in the yard. Should we go home? Get off your phone. Come on girl let’s get outta here. Pull a seat and have one more beer. Getting lucky tonight if I don’t get in a fight. Fill up my cup and don’t clean up. Room starts spinning and I don’t care. But I really gotta get you outta here.

Hey let’s dance. You can’t dance, clap your hands. House party, guitars strumming. I’m not done so I’ll keep coming. Hey get up. Kick the beat. Let me see you jump. All night, into the morning. You’re not done so let’s keep going now.

The Man

The breeze started blowing. No it’s not exactly snowing but I’ve never felt this kind of cold. You said you never will forget a young father’s regret and I froze. Tell me what you needed me to be the man that he can be. A sigh, smile and you told me Be a husband and a friend. Always hold your daughter’s hand and grow old.

I’ll try to be my best but right now I am a mess. I’ll pull myself together on down the road. When I’m home I’ll be the man. You say you know that I am with half a heart that hurts but acts twice as strong. I’ll be the man.

There’s something ‘bout October where the weight of staying sober would weigh heavy on his heart of gold. So he drew in his notes as he choked on the smoke just to laugh. A decade came and gone. Made a living singing songs and I guess we lost touch, it happens. I wish I would have took the time to ask if you were fine looking back.

I’ll try to be my best but right now I am a mess. I’ll pull myself together on down the road. And when I’m home I’ll be the man. You say you know that I am with half a heart that hurts but acts twice as strong. I’ll be the man.

I know you’ve been hurt for so long. Still never thought you’d soon be gone. With a heavy heart and steady hand. Gonna try to be a better man.

I’ll try to be my best but right now I am a mess. I’ll pull myself together on down the road. And when I’m home I’ll be the man. You say you know that I am with half a heart that hurts but acts twice as strong. I’ll be the man.

Be Alright

Something here is not right. I’ve tried and stayed up all night. Been deciding who you are and wishing up to the same old stars. I keep wishing I looked harder for you.

I feel it again and again this same old pain at the end. I tried to escape in my dreams but things aren’t always what they seem. I keep wishing I held your hand one more time. I keep hoping I’ll see your face one more time.

Don’t go hoping that your time will come. ‘Cause we are never ready to be done. Our stories are never ending. Don’t be so condescending in this life. I think we’ll be alright.

This empty feeling in my heart. I’ve felt it right from the start. Spent so much looking for the truth when I should have just believed in you. Now I know I shouldn’t have looked so hard.

Don’t go hoping that your time will come. ‘Cause we are never ready to be done. Our stories are never ending. Don’t be so condescending in this life. I think we’ll be alright.

And I don’t want to hurt anymore. Don’t want to hurt anymore.

Don’t go hoping that your time will come. ‘Cause we are never ready to be done. Our stories are never ending. Don’t be so condescending in this life. I think we’ll be alright.

Music In The Dark

Let’s just play music in the dark. The songs can cover all our scars. We’ll pour our hearts out to the stars. Show this night who we are. Let’s just play music in the dark.

Don’t go out with all your friends. I’ve got a melody that stuck in my head. My voice might go sharp. Lay down the beat of your heart. Let’s just play music in the dark.

I’ve been waiting all day for the sundown and to turn the lights down too. Hear the sound of an old song spinning. Swing in the black to the blues as I sing for you.

Let’s hit the lights and go unplugged. Been far too long since the strings have been strummed. My hearts is pounding like a drum. Say goodnight to the sun. When we make music in the dark.

I’ve been waiting all day for the sundown and to turn the lights down too. Hear the sound of an old song spinning. Swing in the black to the blues as I sing for you.

Let’s just play music in the dark. The songs can cover all our scars. We’ll pour our hearts out to the stars. Show this night who we are. Let’s just play music in the dark.

Strong

Five AM on a Friday. Tuesday’s gone with the heater on. Strong as the winter’s cold at night. Gone as a night train by daylight.

He’s never been one for living the slow life. Mud on his tires and tools on the floor. Up with the sun on the job past midnight. Might be gone, but the man is strong.

Light on the porch she left on. Note she wrote says that dinner is cold but I still love you so.

He’s never been one for living the slow life. Mud on his tires and tools on the floor. Everyday beg not to go. Up with the sun on the job past midnight. Working hands but his heart’s at home. Might be gone, but the man is strong.

Looking back we’ll see the good from his hard work. But that’s not to say, we weren’t in pain, we had to be strong.

He’s never been one for living the slow life. Mud on his tires and tools on the floor. Everyday beg not to go. Up with the sun on the job past midnight. Working hands but his heart’s at home. Might be gone, but the man is strong. Might be gone, but the man is strong.

Awake

Awake. The loneliness is vast. As void as the blank black space beneath my eyelids. Awake. And the light doesn’t seem much brighter than a candle sitting idle. I can tell I’m getting older everyday. Awake.

Awake. I’m losing track of time. My thoughts are stammered echoes in my head. Awake. The days are getting shorter. And my mind begins to border on a notion I’m not meant to see the day.

We can’t be whoever we want to be. We were made to be just who we are.

You shake. Your head in subtle silence, without a fire inside us. If I’m not me, then I’m no good to you. Shine. Oh my light will shine. Shine so bright I’ll wake the weary world.

You shake. Your head in subtle silence without a fire inside us. If I’m not me then, I’m no good to you. So I’ll shine. Oh my light will shine. Shine so bright I’ll wake the weary world. And then fly. Fly at the speed of light. Open up your eyes I’ll be next to you.
