Ripcord Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Gone Tomorrow (Here Today)

A child held up in the sky
To sunset youth, we say goodbye
But I won't live with regret
Carpe Diem is the secret
'Cause, it's....

Gone tomorrow, here today
I ain't gonna waste it
I ain't gonna waste it
No, it's gone tomorrow
But it's here today
I won't let it slip away

I feel the rush it's kicking in
And I wish this night would never end
We're never coming back around
Like shooting stars, we're burning out
It's...

Gone tomorrow, here today
I ain't gonna waste it
I ain't gonna waste it
No, it's gone tomorrow
But it's here today
I won't let it slip away

I wanna feel, wanna touch the light
I look around for the friends that have gone and I'm
Reminded that it's all just a fantasy
But we get to choose what we wanna believe
And I wanna believe that there's something more
Another level to the dream, right through the door
But right now's for real and it's fading fast
Better live 'cause we're never gonna to get it back

It's...
Gone tomorrow, here today
I said, it's gone tomorrow but it's here today
I won't let it slip away

John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16

I'm a 45 spinning on an old Victrola
I'm a two strike swinger, I'm a Pepsi cola
I'm a blue jean quarterback saying "I love you" to the prom queen in a Chevy
I'm John Wayne, Superman, California
I'm a Kris Kristofferson Sunday morning
I'm a mom and daddy singing along to Don McLean at the levee

And I'm a child of a backseat freedom, baptized by rock and roll
Marilyn Monroe and the Garden of Eden, never grow up, never grow old
Just another rebel in the great wide open on the boulevard of broken dreams
And I learned everything I needed to know from John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16

Hey, hey
Everything I needed
That's right

I'm Mark Twain on the Mississippi
I'm Hemingway with a shot of whiskey
I'm a TV dinner on a tray trying to figure out the Wheel of Fortune
I'm a Texaco star, I'm a Gibson guitar
I'm still a teenage kid trying to go too far
I'm a jukebox waiting in a neon bar for a quarter

And I'm a child of a backseat freedom, baptized by rock and roll
Marilyn Monroe and the Garden of Eden, never grow up, never grow old
Just another rebel in the great wide open on the boulevard of broken dreams
And I learned everything I needed to know from John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16

I spent a lot of years running from believing, looking for another way to save my soul
The longer I live, the more I see it: there's only one way home

And I'm a child of a backseat freedom, baptized by rock and roll
Marilyn Monroe and the Garden of Eden, never grow up, never grow old
Just another rebel in the great wide open on the boulevard of broken dreams
And I learned everything I needed to know from John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16

And I'm a child of a backseat freedom, baptized by rock and roll
Marilyn Monroe and the Garden of Eden, never grow up, never grow old
Just another rebel in the great wide open on the boulevard of broken dreams
And I learned everything I needed to know from John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16

(John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16)
Everything I needed
(John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16)
Everything I needed
(John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16)
That's right

Wasted Time

The rain is coming down tonight
I'm smiling looking at this photograph
I hear that song and I'm flying right back
To when we had it made
Every Friday night when the sun went down
We'd be running them streets like we owned the town

And I just can't let it go, no, I just can't let it go
I wonder if you ever think about it like I do
Seven kids on a two lane road
Had the guns on the radio
After all this time it still feels, feels so good

When I think about those summer nights
Singing out the window, on the back roads, Sweet Child of Mine
Sipping on the local's spark of light
Ain't it funny how the best days of my life
Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time

Out of nowhere, it slipped away
And the rope by the river hangs silently
And the town that we knew ain't nothing like it used to be
Ah, I can't explain
They took all the color from the picture frame
And the days got sold to the grid and the game

And I just can't let it go, no, I just can't let it go
I wonder if you ever think about it like I do
Seven kids on a two lane road
We had the guns on the radio
After all this time it still feels, feels so good

When I think about those summer nights
Singing out the window, on the back roads, Sweet Child of Mine
Sipping on the local's spark of light
Ain't it funny how the best days of my life
Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time
Swinging on the line
Living all that wasted time

Hey, hey, now
Summer dresses drying out on the hood of the car
Only music that we had was out the left speaker
We were living every second 'til the time ran out
We had nothing but we had it all

When I think about those summer night
Sneaking out the window, running back roads
Your hand in mine
We were going nowhere, we were so alive
Uh huh, ain't it crazy how the best days of my life
Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time
We were swinging out on the line
Living all that wasted time

Hey, you know oh
All that wasted time
Don't you feel it coming on back now
Time, time, time

Habit Of You

I'm no stranger to the love of a lowly vice
I drowned my liver and I gambled with my pride
I've had a bad case of addicted phases
Moving from one to another
But you got me changing my ways
I'm breaking all the habits I've made

I could make a habit of you
Waking up in my bed
Staying up till two
'Cause you're stuck in my head
It's a symphony you sing to me
When you call out my name
I don't know what else to do
But make a habit of you
Habit of you
Habit of you

Cut out the smokes and I stopped staying up all night
I quit checkin' my phone and I'm savin' my dimes
'Cause it's a wild thing but you got me jonesin'
Need another taste of you
I don't think I could quit you now
You're all that I can think about

I could make a habit of you
Waking up in my bed
Staying up till two
'Cause you're stuck in my head
It's a symphony you sing to me
When you call out my name
I don't know what else to do
But make a habit of you
Habit of you
Habit of you

Alive
Something 'bout the look in your eyes
Can never get enough of this
High
Maybe I'm an addict but I just gotta have it
I just gotta have you
Oh, it's chemical, it's physical, it's spiritual
It's magical, it's lyrical this high
Maybe I'm an addict but I just gotta have it
I just gotta have you

I could make a habit of you
Waking up in my bed
Staying up till two
'Cause you're stuck in my head
It's a symphony you sing to me
When you call out my name
I don't know what else to do
But make a habit of you
Habit of you
Habit of you

Habit of you

Sun Don't Let Me Down

Keith Urban, Mr. Worldwide
They say life is short
So, I'ma live it up
Tonight it's going down
'Til the sun comes up

2 a.m. and I'm about to lose my mind
The way she's moving that black dress
Like her hips are on fire
There in the headlights
Dancin' like she's in a movie scene
To die for and it's killin' me
Stars are out But they're fadin' fast
Gotta make it last
And I'm so close to heaven
So, just hold your light
Cause I need the night

Sun don't let me down
She's almost in my arms right now
I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
But I need the moonlight to do my thing
Sun don't let me down
Don't let me down

Hey, don't get me wrong
I like the way you shine
I know you love kissin' on her skin
But it's my turn tonight
Starin' at her lips
Playin' with my name
Whispering, "Come to me"
She's pulling me in
Like I'm on a chain

Stars are out Yeah, they're in the sky
Like they're in her eyes
I think I found my heaven
But just have a heart
Stay where you are

Sun don't let me down
She's almost in my arms right now
I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
But I need the moonlight to do my thing
Sun don't let me down
Don't let me down

Life is short so I'm livin' it up
Tonight it's goin' down, yeah, 'til the sun comes up
Then we do it all again, 'cause we ain't givin' a "wha"
And all the women at the party givin' it up
Time is money and I ain't wastin' no time
So, fill my cup up with Voli, water and lime
Take a shot for the soldiers in the field
Thanks for the freedom and that's for real
Tonight we're getting hammered, banged-up and tanked
That means get off the chain, let loose and drank
Mommy wanna play the adult version of Truth-or-Dare
So, I took her to the back and pulled her hair, yeah

Sun don't let me down
She's almost in my arms right now
I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
But I need the moonlight to do my thing
Sun don't let me down
Don't let me down

She's almost in my arms right now
I know you gotta rise for the birds to sing
But I need the moonlight to do my thing
Sun don't let me down, no, oh
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't come around
Stay underground
No, no, don't let me down

Gettin' In The Way

Moonlight, it's gotta be close to midnight
Where did it go
All the time, all the friends left waiting
Never made it 'cause we kept making out

In the driveway, who would've thought in the driveway
That we would get lost
In that dashboard radio static
Makin' our own kind of magic

Oooo, oh, I said, thirty more minutes, thirty minutes ago
Oooo, oh, but we're still right here and you already know that

I should leave, put the car in drive babe
But your kiss keeps tellin' me to stay
Yeah, your lips keep gettin' in the way
You know we should've called it a night, babe
But goodbye's something I can't say
Yeah, your lips keep gettin' in the way (gettin' in the way)

Windows, we already fogged up the windows
We're writing our names on the glass
As the clock keeps ticking
Sun'll be up any minute

Oooo, oh, I said, thirty more minutes, thirty minutes ago
Oooo, oh, but we're still right here and you already know that

I should leave, put the car in drive babe
But your kiss keeps tellin' me to stay
Yeah, your lips keep gettin' in the way
You know we should've called it a night, babe
But goodbye's something I can't say
Yeah, your lips keep gettin' in the way (gettin' in the way)

'Cause goodbye's something I, something I can't say
Yeah, your lips keep, keep
Gettin' in the way

I should leave, put the car in drive babe
But your kiss keeps tellin' me to stay
Yeah, your lips keep gettin' in the way
You know we should've called it a night, babe
But goodbye's something I can't say
Yeah, your lips keep gettin' in the way (gettin' in the way)

Blue Ain't Your Color

I can see you over there
Starring at your drink
Watchin' that ice sink
All alone tonight

And chances are
You're sittin' here in this bar
'Cause he ain't gonna treat you right
Well, it's probably not my place
But I'm gonna say it anyway
'Cause you look like
You haven't felt the fire
Had a little fun
Hadn't had a smile in a little while
Baby

Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin' on the wall
But darling, it don't match your eyes
I'm tellin' you
You don't need that guy
It's so black and white
He's stealin' your thunder
Baby, blue ain't your color

I'm not tryna
Be another just
Pick you up
Kinda guy
Tryna drink you up
Tryna take you home
But I just don't understand
How another man
Can take your sun
And turn it ice cold

Well, I've had enough to drink
And it's makin'
Me think that I just might
Tell you if I were a painter I wouldn't change ya
I'd just paint you bright
Baby

Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin' on the wall
But darling, it don't match your eyes
I'm tellin' you
You don't need that guy
It's so black and white
He's stealin' your thunder
Baby, blue ain't your color
Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin' on the wall
But darling, it don't match your eyes
I'm tellin' you
You don't need that guy
It's so black and white
He's stealin' your thunder
Baby, blue ain't your color

The Fighter

[Keith Urban:]
I know he hurt you
Made you scared of love, too scared to love
He didn't deserve you
'Cause you're precious heart is a precious heart
He didn't know what he had and I thank God, oh, oh, oh
And it's gonna take just a little time
But you're gonna see that I was born to love you

Look in the mirror

Break On Me

There'll be days your heart don't wanna beat
You pray more than you breathe
And you just wanna fall to pieces
And nights, those 2 AM calls
Where dreams become walls
And you just need a break
Break on me

Shatter like glass
Come apart in my hands
Take as long as it takes, girl
Break on me
Put your head on my chest
Let me help you forget
When your heart needs to break
Just break on me

There'll be times when someone you know
Becomes someone you knew
But you'd do anything to change it
And words you wanna take back
But you know you can't
When the page just won't turn
And it still hurts
Break on me

Shatter like glass
Come apart in my hands
Take as long as it takes, girl
Break on me
Put your head on my chest
Let me help you forget
When your heart needs to break
Just break on me

Oh, when you need somebody
When you need somebody right now
You're where I'll be
Break on me

Shatter like glass
Come apart in my hands
Take as long as it takes, girl
Break on me
Put your head on my chest
Let me help you forget
When your heart needs to break
Just break on me
Break on me
Break on me, baby

Boy Gets A Truck

It ain't a story as old as time
Just as old as when they first
Rolled off the assembly line
Everybody knows how it goes
Once upon a time, four wheels rolled and a

Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl
Girl gets a midnight feeling he's the one
One night turns to love
Love turns into one knee down
Down payment on a 3 bedroom house
Filled with the sound of little feet
Then you blink and he's asking for the keys to pick her up
Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl

It's freedom flying down a two-lane
Young love steaming up the windows
'Cause it can't wait
She's whispering in your ear
While you're tryin' to keep it on the road
It's been goin' on for years

Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl
Girl gets a midnight feeling he's the one
One night turns to love
Love turns into one knee down
Down payment on a 3 bedroom house
Filled with the sound of little feet
Then you blink and he's asking for the keys to pick her up
Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl

Yeah, she'll slid on over
Put her head on your shoulder
While the wheels keep turnin' the world
A boy gets a truck

Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl
Girl gets a midnight feeling he's the one
One night turns to love
Love turns into one knee down
Down payment on a 3 bedroom house
Filled with the sound of little feet
Then you blink and he's asking for the keys to pick her up
Boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl

Your Body

All the burnin' lights
Go rushin' by
I'm drivin' like a wild man outta the city
Gotta leave the madness behind
This jungle world gets so insane
It's a damned if you do
Damned if you don't kinda deal
In this crazy game

Shinin' in the darkness
Brighter than the sun
You fall into me
And we are one

And everything in the world is right
Stars align whenever my body
Is touching your body
And when I got your skin on mine
Fear gives way to heaven inside me
Whenever my body is touching your body

Your slight of hand
And your fire lips
Like a man with a habit
All I know's I gotta have it
Yeah, the magic in your fingertips
The things you do
And the love we make
Underneath the covers
You carry me away

And everything in the world is right
Stars align whenever my body
Is touching your body
And when I got your skin on mine
Fear gives way to heaven inside me
Whenever my body is touching your body

They say, nothing lasts forever
We make that so untrue
When forever's come and gone
I'll still be holding on to you

And everything in the world is right
Stars align whenever my body
Is touching your body
And when I got your skin on mine
Fear gives way to heaven inside me
Whenever my body is touching your body

That Could Still Be Us

Wide awake staring at my phone
Who's gonna give in first?
We don't have to be all alone
We don't have to feel this hurt
'Member those nights in your driveway
Feeling like the only ones left on earth
And maybe I'm crazy
But I think that maybe

That could still be us
'Cause it still is sometimes at night when my eyes are shut
Wish I could say it don't get to me but it does
And I know I probably think about you way too much
But that's because
That could still be us

I went down to the riverbank
Looked in the water and saw your face
This small town summer wind
Whispers all my mistakes
'Member those nights in your backyard
Making each other shake
And lately it kills me
And nothing can fill me
'Cause

That could still be us
'Cause it still is sometimes at night when my eyes are shut
Wish I could say it don't get to me but it does
And I know I probably think about you way too much
But that's because
That could still be us
That could still be us
That could still be us
That could still be us

Tail lights fading in the dark
I shoulda called out your name
I go by there some nights and park
Replay it all again
What woulda been
What shoulda been
What was

That could still be us
'Cause it still is sometimes at night when my eyes are shut
Wish I could say it don't get to me but it does
And I know I probably think about you way too much
But that's because
That could still be us
That could still be us
That could still be us
That could still be us

Worry 'Bout Nothin'

Give me a hundred acres, cut a path through the long leaf pines
A little piece of paper saying everything I see is mine
As long as you're beside me, it's all the same when the daylight ends
I ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
I ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
(Tryin' to) make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
Do nothin', I don't really want to
Tryin' to make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
Do nothin' but spend a little time on you

You sittin' there lookin' all pretty
In the sunset tree line half-drunk with me (and I)
Love that feelin' when the smile starts kickin' in
Ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
You sittin' there lookin' all pretty
In the sunset tree line sparkin' up with me
And I love that feelin' when the smile starts kickin' in
I ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again

I'll take a blue sky highway, Painted Desert to the Vegas strip
Or a sleepy hometown with just one or two street lights lit
Where the blacktop dies and the gravel begins
Me and you skinny dippin' where the river bends
Ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
I ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again

Paint the barn roof "See Rock City"�
Kickin' back just a couple of sunshine hippies
Yeah, the way that you and the smoke and the whiskey blend
Ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
Paint the barn roof "See Rock City"�
Kickin' back just a couple of sunshine hippies
Yeah, the way that you and the smoke and the whiskey blend
Ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again

(Tryin' to) make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
Do nothin', I don't really want to
Tryin' to make the money but the money ain't gonna make me
Do nothin' but spend a little time on you

You sittin' there lookin' all pretty
In the sunset tree line half-drunk with me (and I)
Love that feelin' when the smile starts kickin' in
Ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
You sittin' there lookin' all pretty
In the sunset tree line sparkin' up with me
And I love that feelin' when the smile starts kickin' in
I ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
Paint the barn roof "See Rock City"�
Kickin' back just a couple of sunshine hippies
Yeah, the way that you and the smoke and the whiskey blend
Ain't never gonna worry 'bout nothin' again
