lyrics

Long time love always hit the road running.
Got a hairpin trigger and a problem with drinking.
You brought your mouth to a gun fight darling.
Automatic mind got the last word coming around.

And if you didn't know, now you know.

Your eyes- [I'm finally listening]- have got something to tell me.
Your eyes- [What are they trying to say?]- are as vacant as the sky.

Ready set go, you can cuddle with a pillow.
Got my mind on you honey but you're wasting my time.
Talking may be cheap but I'm not a beginner.
Always got my eye on the exit door when you're around.

Fooled me once baby, but not again.

Your eyes- [I'm finally listening]- have got something to tell me.
Your eyes- [What are they trying to say?]- are as vacant as the sky.
Your eyes- [Not hiding anything]- can probably see through me.
Your eyes- [Will never go away]- make me naked inside.

In a western state, all's quiet now.

Listen I think you and me have got a problem.
And I'll shoulder the blame, if that's what it takes to get to solving it.
I've got a whole lot of time's been wasted on this.
No I'm not trying to say that you promised me anything.
When you didn't. You didn't.

Don't look at me that way. Your eyes burn into me.
And I lose my mind. It's hard to concentrate.
I thought I knew this game. Your eyes dismantle me.
And I compromise, like it's reason I came.

Your eyes- [I'm finally listening]- have got something to tell me.
Your eyes- [What are they trying to say?]- are as vacant as the sky.
Your eyes- [Not hiding anything]- can probably see through me.
Your eyes- [Will never go away]- make me naked inside.

On the open road, I'll be quiet now.
