It’s songs like this that turned me onto country music. The lyrics are obvious, straightforward and moving.
“All the nights we spent, just talking of the things we wanted out of life. Making plans and dreams together. Wish I’d seen, I was just too blind.”
“My heart was open, exposed and hoping, for you to lay it on the line. In the end it seemed there was no room for me, still I tried to change your mind.”
I really love Lady Antebellum because of their duets. They give you two perspectives of love and relationships. I love that you can relate to the honesty in their lyrics.
“Oh, I don’t need you, I don’t need you anymore. I guess I wanted you more. And looking back now, I’m sure, I wanted you more. I guess I wanted you more”
Sometimes all you need to do to get clarity on a relationship is to get out of it. Being so immersed in somebody can convince you that you have feelings that really aren’t there. I saw this song as a realization of that for one of them, and a moving on for the other.
I love this song. I’ve been waiting for some good new country for a while…finally!
