lyrics

we hit road
i said tell me where you’re wanting to be and that’s where we’re gonna go
if it takes my life
i looked over at you
had a smile on my face and i noticed you were smiling too
girl you were smiling too
and for the first time in a long time
we were alright
turned the radio on
and heard luckenbach texas and you said it was your favorite song
girl you started singing along
crossed state lines
i couldn’t keep my eyes open so i stopped to see an old friend of mine
to get some sleep for a while
for the first time in a long time
we were alright
woke by the phone
heard your voice say i should come get my things
cause you were gonna be home and you wanted them gone
like a brick it hit me
everything i thought that happened that night well it was only a dream
so i went back to sleep
what else could i do
tried to find my way back into that dream so i could be close to you
so i could be close to you
cause for the first time in a long time
we were alright
oh for the first time in a long time
we were alright
