lyrics

Can't believe I'm sittin' here with you
Listenin' in while you sing' the same old tune
A world class drama queen don't you beat all I've ever seen
But I eat it up like I always do

All day long I been thinkin' 'bout your smile
I'll be back to the house in a little while
Won't you meet me at the door kiss me like you did before
Don't you know it drives me wild

I know it wouldn't be shouldn't be
Couldn't be smart to fall
But I'm yours and you're mine and that's right
And that's it and that's all

My head tells me there's trouble down the road
But my hands still grab the wheel and pull you close
I'm lucky love is blind 'cause I can't trust this gauge of mine
This diesel heart is set on cruise control

I know it wouldn't be shouldn't be
Couldn't be smart to fall
But I'm yours and you're mine and that's right
And that's it and that's all

Rivers don't complain 'bout where they flow
And the mountains they just keep collectin' snow
Well I'd borrow beg or steal but I can't change the way I feel
No it's buried deep down in my bones

I know it wouldn't be shouldn't be
Couldn't be smart to fall
But I'm yours and you're mine and that's right
And that's it and that's all

Well I'm yours and you're mine hands down no doubt
Right as rain said and done super cool sure enough
That's a fact and that's it and that's all
