I’ve been sitting here staring at the clock on the wall
And I’ve been laying here praying, praying she won’t call
It’s just another call from home
And you’ll get it and be gone
And I’ll be crying

And I’ll be begging you, baby
Beg you not to leave
But I’ll be left here waiting
With my Heart on my sleeve
Oh, for the next time we’ll be here
Seems like a million years
And I think I’m dying

What so I have to do to make you see
She can’t love you like me

Why don’t you stay
I’m down on my knees
I’m so tired of being lonely
Don’t I give you what you need
When she calls you to go
There is one thing you should know
We don’t have to live this way
Baby, why don’t you stay

You keep telling me, baby
There will come a time
When you will leave her arms
And forever be in mine
But I don’t think that’s the truth
And I don’t like being used and I’m tired of waiting
It’s too much pain to have to bare
To love a man you have to share

Why don’t you stay
I’m down on my knees
I’m so tired of being lonely
Don’t I give you what you need
When she calls you to go
There is one thing you should know
We don’t have to live this way
Baby, why don’t you stay

I can’t take it any longer
But my will is getting stronger
And I think I know just what I have to do
I know just what I have to do
I can’t waste another minute
After all that I’ve put in it
I’ve given you my best
Why does she get the best of you
So next time you find you wanna leave her bed for mine

Why don’t you stay
I’m up off my knees
I’m so tired of being lonely
You can’t give me what I need
When she begs you not to go
There is one thing you should know
I don’t have to live this way
Baby, why don’t you stay, yeah

Fifteen minutes left to throw me together
For mister right now, not mister forever
Don’t know why I even try when I know how it ends
Looking like another “maybe we could be friends”
I’ve been leaving it up to fate
It’s my life so it’s mine to make

I ain’t settling for just getting by
I’ve had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain’t enough this time
I ain’t settling for anything less than everything, yeah

With some good red wine and my brand new shoes
Gonna dance a blue streak around my living room
Take a chance on love and try how it feels
With my heart wide open now you know I will
Find what it means to be the girl
Change her mind and change her world

I ain’t settling for just getting by
I’ve had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain’t enough this time
I ain’t settling for anything less than everything

I ain’t settling for just getting by
I’ve had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain’t enough this time

I ain’t settling for just getting by
I’ve had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
I ain’t settling no, no, no, no, no, no

So raise the bar high

There’s a place I like to go
Cherry bombs and cherry wine
Just past the Texaco
Down on the county line

Beer cans and cemetaries
Spanish moss on a welcome sign
Catch a bus we all get scared
Down on the county line

Out where your troubles can’t find you
Out where you leave em all behind
Out where the moon shines sweetly
Won’t you meet me down on the county line

Kettle corn and 4H babes
Pink slips and white wall tires
Bet you twenty I’ll beat you there
Down on the county line

It’s first love and football woes
A french kiss and battle cries
Further then I’ve been before
Down on the county line

Out where your troubles can’t find you
Out where you leave em all behind
Out where the moon shines sweetly
Won’t you meet me down on the county line

All the church yards and whitewash fences
All the widows and teenage brides
Their all searching for redemption
They’re all looking for a sign

Down on the county line (down on the county line)
Down on the county line (down on the county line)

The best things in life are free
It’s been right here all the time
It’s everyhing this home to me
Down on the county line

Out where your troubles can’t find you
Out where you leave em all behind
Out where the moon shines sweetly
Won’t you meet me down on the county line

Out where your troubles can’t find ya
Out where we have a real good time
Out where the moon shines sweetly
Won’t you meet me down on the county line

Down on the county line (down on the county line)
Down on the county line (down on the county line)

I packed a cooler and a change of clothes
Let’s jump in, see how far it goes
You got my heart in your daddy’s boat
We’ve got all night to make it float

We could sit on the shore
We could just be friends
Or we could jump in

The whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop it spinning
We could think it through
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came
with nothing to lose
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

I got your ring around my neck
and a couple of nights I don’t regret
You’ve got a dream of a degree and a shirt that smells like me

Yeah we both got dreams
we could chase alone
or we could make our own

The whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop it spinning
We could think it through
But I don’t want to if you don’t want to
We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came
with nothing to lose
But I don’t want to if you don’t want to

Never waste another day wonderin’ what you threw away
Holding me, holding you
I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came with nothing to lose
But I don’t want to, if you don’t want to

But I want to
But I want you

Grew up on a tightrope, learned to smile
Even when I was falling down
Daddy had a hard hand and Mama always had hope
And me and my sister couldn’t wait to get out
Fell in love out of collage
Good man for the bad year
Visions of sugarplums and boxes of roses
All my girlfriends cried and I was outta here

Oooh, whoa, everybody’s dreaming big
Oooh, whoa, but everybody’s just getting by
That’s how it goes in everyday America
A little town and a great big light

Joey stares at a trophy
Took us all the way to state back in ’85
A shining moment and a dusty reminder
He never felt so scared, he never felt so alive
We found his toys in the backyard
Daddy’s boys, yeah, you know how they like to fight
When they sleep, he swears they’re angels
He wouldn’t trade a day for all those Friday nights

Oooh, whoa, everybody’s dreaming big
Oooh, whoa, but everybody’s just getting by
That’s how it goes in everyday America
A little town and a great big light

We can laugh, we can cry
We’re all just looking for the reasons why
In a place of dark can we see the light
Either way it’ll be alright

Oooh, whoa, everybody’s dreaming big
Oooh, whoa, but everybody’s just getting by
That’s how it goes in everyday America
A little town and a great big light

Oooh, whoa, everybody’s dreaming big
Oooh, whoa, but everybody’s just getting by
That’s how it goes in everyday America
A little town and a great big light (x3)

Sugarland, warm breeze blowing, long dirt road
First time that I saw him was such a long time ago
I was sixteen going on seventeen
Blue bonnet Texas queen fell in love with a rodeo king
Down in Sugarland

Drive in movies, hot summer night
First time that I kissed him made the world seem right
I was city bound couldn’t wait to get outta this town
Suddenly everything just changed
Something told me I just might stay
Down in sugarland

Down in sugarland doing the best we can
Holding hands staying up all night
Swinging stars from satelittes
Down in sugarland doing the best we can
Falling in love again down in sugarland

Corn fields swaying, clothes on the line
Tumbleweed is a turning like the hands of time
When I was sixteen going on seventeen
I didn’t know much of anything
Living the American dream down in sugarland

And I see the small town smile in your eyes
Shining like a diamond in the sky
The sweet sky, under the sweet sky

Sweet skies of sugarland doing the best we can
Holding hands staying up all night
Swinging stars from satelittes down in sugarland
Doing the best we can
Falling in love again down in sugarland

Whoa, whoa, whoa, sugarland
Sweet skies of sugarland, sugarland
(Sugarland) warm breeze blowing
Long dirt road
Sugarland
