When we pull out of the drive-thru
We’ll be on the road again
I can’t help but smile at you
Though you say it’s more
like a wicked grin
No, there’s nothing wrong
with the steering wheel
I just tend to grip it tight
Go to sleep if that’s how you feel
We’ll be driving all night

It’s just like being in the rodeo
Hanging on for dear life
We’ve got no barrel
We’ve got no clown
It’s just you and me
when the deal goes down

The town where we’re headed is
not on any map
I don’t think it’s even got a name
You give me a kiss
and you give me slap
Then ask me for the same
I don’t know if he’s living there
I don’t know if he’s alive
I can’t tell if you still care
I’ll find out when we arrive



from Rodeo, released October 4, 2015
