I acted like I knew better
I didn’t know any better
Not saying it wasn’t my fault
It was mostly my fault.
We were like a story in a movie
But I was mostly for show
Thought I knew about love
But all I knew was the rodeo.
I had never seen anything like you
Rock stars didn’t play the rodeo
I tried to tell you how I felt
But I was used to riding solo.
So ready to go to the next town
Couldn’t stop the desire but I wanted to
Didn’t understand how to handle emotion
But I still fell for you.
I have been running all my life
I’ve been lying mostly too
The dust would settle sometimes
And all I could see was you.
I know you don’t like being alone, baby
It’s all I know, all I’ve done
I know you hate it about me
All I do fast is fall and run.
But I have beat 8 seconds a hundred times
And I can handle your rock and roll
You say I can’t hold you, love you right?
I am the only one who aches in your soul.
I still have never seen anything like you
Why didn’t rock stars play the rodeo?
I still am trying to write you how I feel
But I am used to riding solo.
