Carly Pearce - Hummingbird Lyrics






Country Music Made Me Do It

Country music made me do it and I'll do it 'til I die

First time that I tasted whiskey
First time I took it way too far
First time I let the wrong boy kiss me
And learned all about a broken heart

And I
Left everything I've ever known behind
And my mama cried

Country music made me do it
Got me drunk and got me through it
A little heartbreak eighty proof
Over "Three Chords and the Truth"
Out of a small town, into a ball gown
Pickin' me up every time that I fall down
Everything that I've done wrong or I've done right
Oh, country music made me do it and I'll do it 'til I die

First time that I thought about cheatin'
First time that I blamed my dad
That time that I changed my last name
That time that I changed it back

And I
Said who I was and didn't have to lie
And when they asked me why

Country music made me do it
Got me drunk and got me through it
A little heartbreak eighty proof
Over "Three Chords and the Truth"
Out of a small town, into a ball gown
Pickin' me up every time that I fall down
Everything that I've done wrong or I've done right
Oh, country music made me do it and I'll do it 'til I die

I wear my hair a little too high
And my heartbreak on my sleeve
I might be a little bit crazy
But you can't blame me
Country music
Made me do it
Country music
Is guilty for the things I've done

Country music made me do it
Got me drunk and got me through it
A little heartbreak eighty proof
Over "Three Chords and the Truth"
Out of a small town, into a ball gown
Pickin' me up every time that I fall down
Everything that I've done wrong or I've done right
Oh, country music made me do it and I'll do it 'til I die

Mmhmm

truck on fire

Always thought you loved that black Z71
More than you loved me
Momma always told me boys like you would run
Not for keeps
You called me up to tell me you were working late (uh-huh)
But I heard right now you're dancing with a little Miss Jane

Birds been talking up on the wire
Spilling your secrets all over this town
You and her, back road, pulling all-nighters
Did you really think that I wouldn't find out?
Oh, so I found a little gas in a small red can
Oh, last strike match flying out of my hand
Liar, liar, truck on fire
Flames rolling off of your Goodyear tires
Burn, burn, you're gonna learn
Never should've put your lips on her

Should've known from the way that you never left your phone
Sitting by the bed
Or the way that you laughed it off when I was catching on
Said it was in my head
Did you think that I wouldn't smell that cheap perfume? (Uh-huh)
You'll have to find a new ride 'cause the joke's on you

Birds been talking up on the wire
Spilling your secrets all over this town
You and her, back road, pulling all-nighters
Did you really think that I wouldn't find out?
Oh, so I found a little gas in a small red can
Oh, last strike match flying out of my hand
Liar, liar, truck on fire
Flames rolling off of your Goodyear tires
Burn, burn, you're gonna learn
Never should've put your lips on her
Put your lips on her

Burn, burn, burn, baby
You'll learn, learn, learn, baby

Birds been talking up on the wire
Spilling your secrets all over this town
You and her, back road, pulling all-nighters
Did you really think that I wouldn't find out?
Oh, so I found a little gas in a small red can
Oh, last strike match flying out of my hand
Liar, liar, truck on fire
Flames rolling off of your Goodyear tires
Burn, burn, you're gonna learn
Never should've put your lips on her

still blue

I fell in love like I fell down a rabbit hole
You lit a fire and it made me feel out of control
Oh, I thought I would die if you said goodbye
Then you did, what a nice surprise

The sky was still blue after you left
Sun still rose, sun still set
And I went out on the town with no regrets
In my Levi's jeans, still blue
Thinking your world was my world too
Thinking forever I'd be hung up on you
Well, it's not your fault if that's what you thought
But honey, I'm not still blue

I'm seeing someone who ain't seeing anybody else
He's showing me around heaven 'stead of putting my heart through hell
Oh, thought you were the best, as good as it gets
But now I'm so unimpressed

The sky was still blue after you left
Sun still rose, sun still set
And I went out on the town with no regrets
In my Levi's jeans, still blue
Thinking your world was my world too
Thinking forever I'd be hung up on you
Well, it's not your fault if that's what you thought
But honey, I'm not still blue, no

Oh, I thought I would die if you said goodbye
And you did, but what a nice surprise

The sky was still blue after you left
Sun still rose, sun still set
And I went out on the town with no regrets
In my Levi's jeans, still blue
Thinking your world was my world too
Thinking forever I'd be hung up on you
Well, it's not your fault if that's what you thought
But honey, I'm not still blue

Yeah, it's not your fault if that's what you thought
But honey, I'm not still blue

Heels Over Head

You been lookin' for a good time call
I ain't a number on a bathroom wall
So you were never gonna fall for me
Little ol' me
She don't even need a couple drinks
To let you take her home and tangle up your sheets
It ain't like me to say talk is cheap
But, honey, so is she

I bet you're head over heels this time
You love the way that she blows your mind
Now I see why you'd leave me
'Cause she makes easy look so easy
All over town, all over you
She's good at thе things good girls don't do
Knows how to wear red and her way around a bеd
Bet you're head over heels 'cause she's heels over head for you

You want the vixen in a magazine
Got a hidden tattoo that everybody's seen
Wouldn't take her home to Mama 'cause she still loves me
Little ol' me
From the way that she looks, you might think that you love her
But you know what they say about a book and its cover
It's up to you and not me to judge her
But y'all deserve each other

I bet you're head over heels this time
You love the way that she blows your mind
Now I see why you'd leave me
'Cause she makes easy look so easy
All over town, all over you
She's good at the things good girls don't do
Knows how to wear red and her way around a bed
Bet you're head over heels 'cause she's heels over head for you

It ain't like me to say talk is cheap
But, honey, so is she

I bet you're head over heels this time
You love the way that she blows your mind
Now I see why you'd leave me
'Cause she makes easy look so easy
All over town, all over you
She's good at the things good girls don't do
Knows how to wear red and her way around a bed
Bet you're head over heels 'cause she's heels over head for you

Heels over head for you

We Dont Fight Anymore

I couldn't make you jealous if I tried
You couldn't care less if I stayed out all night
I don't even look into your eyes
'Cause the truth is I don't even care if you're lying

In this bed we
Might as well be
Across the ocean tonight

We don't yell 'cause what the hell difference would it make?
We don't cuss and we don't care enough to even hate
We could tear up the house, we could burn the whole thing down
But boy what for?
'Cause we don't even fight anymore

The only time we ever touch is in the hall
We talk about the weather if we talk at all
If your phone rings in the middle of the night
I don't even try to look to see who's calling

I had a bad day but
You don't know it 'cause
You don't ask and I don't show it

We don't yell 'cause what the hell difference would it make?
We don't cuss and we don't care enough to even hate
We could tear up the house, we could burn the whole thing down
But boy what for?
'Cause we don't even fight anymore

I wish you would say something (say anything)
You wish I would say something (say anything)
I would never say nothing
No, we'd never say nothing

We don't yell 'cause what the hell difference would it make?
We don't cuss and we don't care enough to even hate
We could tear up the house, we could burn the whole thing down
But boy what for?
'Cause we don't even fight anymore

No, we don't (no, we don't even), mm

rock paper scissors

He had me in the palm of his hand
Ditching all of my plans, yeah
He had me thinking 'bout wearing white
Missus to Mister Right

Couldn't wait to change my name
Didn't know love was a game

'Til he bought a rock, we signed the paper
And now I'm taking a pair of scissors
To the pictures and the brand-new set of bedsheets
From the night we said I do
Eight months later, we were through
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Just my luck
I was playing by the rules
He was playing me the fool
Could've used a sign or a little head's up
I was dealing with a cheat
Would've liked to know before he

Bought a rock, we signed the paper
And now I'm taking a pair of scissors
To the pictures and the brand-new set of bedsheets
From the night we said I do
Eight months later, we were through
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Couldn't wait to change my name
Didn't know love was a game

Then he bought a rock, we signed the paper
And now I'm taking a pair of scissors
To the pictures and the brand-new set of bedsheets
From the night we said I do
Eight months later, we were through
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Yeah, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

oklahoma

I'm glad there ain't no service outside of Seminole
'Cause if he left a message, I don't wanna know
And why's the only station barely coming through
Only playing songs that make me think of you?

I just hit Oklahoma, Highway 99
Got one hand out the window and one thing on my mind
My wheels just started spinning when I pulled out of the drive
Don't know what's in the distance but looking back is wasted time
I don't know where the hell you are
I passed a hundred bars and seen your face
In every car along the way
I might be in Oklahoma, but I'm not okay

It ain't the truck stop coffee keeping me awake
It's my mind going over what I'll never get to say
'Cause you could never hear it if I said it anyway
So this time I'm staying in my lane

And I just hit Oklahoma, Highway 99
Got one hand out the window and one thing on my mind
My wheels just started spinning when I pulled out of the drive
Don't know what's in the distance but looking back is wasted time
I don't know where the hell you are
I passed a hundred bars and seen your face
In every car along the way
I might be in Oklahoma, but I'm not okay

But then again
It's just the state I'm in

I just hit Oklahoma, Highway 99
Got one hand out the window and one thing on my mind
My wheels just started spinning when I pulled out of the drive
Don't know what's in the distance but looking back is wasted time
I don't know where the hell you are
I passed a hundred bars and seen your face
In every car along the way
I might be in Oklahoma, but I'm not okay

my place

That ain't my lawn, that ain't my porch
But he's kissed me on those steps before
I said, "I love you more" at least a hundred times
I picked that paint, but that ain't my front door
And that's still his truck, but that ain't my Ford
Where mine used to sit once upon a time

It ain't my place
To question if there's someone fillin' my space
Ain't my business tryna picture four by sixes with her in 'em
If she does things that I didn't
Wonderin' what the hell I'm wonderin' for
It ain't my place, 'cause it ain't my place anymore

Bet my good wine's still in his bar
Took all of my dishes, but I left my heart
Are her eyes blue or green?
Is she prettier than me?
Were you chasin' some high? Was I just some phase?
Do you ever slip up and call her my name?
Either way

It ain't my place
To question if there's someone fillin' my space
Ain't my business tryna picture four by sixes with her in 'em
If she does things that I didn't
Wonderin' what the hell I'm wonderin' for
It ain't my place, 'cause it ain't my place anymore

Does he know me as a memory?
Is she enough to forget me?

It ain't my place
To question if there's someone fillin' my space
Ain't my business tryna picture four by sixes with her in 'em
If she does things that I didn't
Oh, wonderin' what the hell I'm wonderin' for
It ain't my place, 'cause it ain't my place, yeah, it ain't my place
'Cause it ain't my place anymore

things i don't chase

Yeah, he's a hard one
A never changing wrangler's son
Sleeps in his Red Wings
Loves you like you're everything
Worth slowing down for
Until his eyes are on the door
Yeah, he's the stubborn kind
Yeah, but so am I

I'm gonna sit here, sip my Maker's straight
Watch out the window while he rides away
I know if he wanted to, he would've stayed
Cowboys and whiskey are two things I don't chase, ooh

Oh, I'm a strong pour
If you love me, then I'll love you more
And if you're out wandering
Then I ain't gonna rope you in
His eyes were begging me to follow him, to put up a fight
Girl, hold your horses, don't let 'em see you cry

I'm gonna sit here, sip my Maker's straight
Watch out the window while he rides away
I know if he wanted to, he would've stayed
Cowboys and whiskey are two things I don't chase

I'm okay if he's thinking 'bout going
I wouldn't want him anyway

I'm gonna sit here
Watch as he's leaving
I know if he wanted to, he would've stayed
Cowboys and whiskey are two things I don't chase, ooh

woman to woman

Woman to woman, take it from me
From Texarkana to Tennessee
Ain't a roadside motel he ain't seen
He's smooth as clover honey

Woman to woman, his history
Is he hit rock bottom at seventeen
Now he's tip of the top in a ponzi scheme
Making money off of people's money
Yeah, he's living Las Vegas lucky

Girl, I've been you, Romeo roped me in
I've walked in your shoes, let his boots in my bed
Should've took the last one's warning
He took off in the morning
Where there's smoke, there's fire and damn, he's cooking
Making his way from

Woman to woman, he's a one trick show
He'll knock you down like a domino
You ain't his first rodeo
If you're stupid you'll be next
It's a love 'em and leave 'em ripple effect

Girl, I've been you, Romeo roped me in
I've walked in your shoes, let his boots in my bed
Should've took the last one's warning
He took off in the morning
Where there's smoke, there's fire and damn, he's cooking
Making his way from woman to woman

Man, oh man, you never stood a chance
Slow draw and a real slow hand
Trust me, I've danced that dance

Girl, I've been you, Romeo roped me in
I've walked in your shoes, let his boots in my bed
Should've took the last one's warning
He took off in the morning
Where there's smoke, there's fire and damn, he's cooking
Making his way from woman to woman
Yeah, he's making his way from woman to woman

Ain't a roadside motel he ain't seen

fault line

You get drunk, I do too
We got bills overdue
You blame me, I blame you
Here we go again
You get mad, you go fish
I get mad, break a dish
I turn into the bitch
That you say I am

We're livin' on a fault line
Right down the middle of this house
Between the whiskey and the red wine
It's like we're standin' on shaky ground
It always hits about midnight
Should probably go and find a "For Sale" sign
'Cause we're livin' on a fault line
And the fault is always mine

I just look at you wrong
You say I'm just like my mom
Point your finger and it's on
And now your clothes are all over the lawn

We're livin' on a fault line
Right down the middle of this house
Between the whiskey and the red wine
It's like we're standin' on shaky ground
It always hits about midnight
Should probably go and find a "For Sale" sign
'Cause we're livin' on a fault line
And the fault is always mine

Shakin' all the fixtures
Breakin' all the pictures
A ten on the Richter scale
The room starts to rattle
We're goin' into battle
We know this all too well

We're livin' on a fault line
Right down the middle of this house
Between the whiskey and the red wine
It's like we're standin' on shaky ground
It always hits about midnight
Should probably go and find a "For Sale" sign
'Cause we're livin' on a fault line
And the fault is always mine
Yeah, we're livin' on a fault line
And the fault is always mine

pretty please

He used to be
Turned on by a touch and a smile
He got used to me
Nothing I try drives him wild
I walked in here, hoping to hear
Things I ain't heard in a while

Tell me the second that you saw me all you thought about
Was how my dress would look falling on your floor
And tell me you ain't drunk at all, it ain't the alcohol
That's got you feeling things you ain't felt before and buy me one more
Tell me I'm fun, I could be the one
You've only dreamed of a woman like me
But you ain't met any
So tell me I'm pretty, please

I'm not trying to find
Someone to just take me home
But if I ever did
He won't even notice I'm gone
So when it's last call, if this is all that it is
Could you just play along?

And tell me the second that you saw me all you thought about
Was how my dress would look falling on your floor
And tell me you ain't drunk at all, it ain't the alcohol
That's got you feeling things you ain't felt before and buy me one more
Tell me I'm fun, I could be the one
You've only dreamed of a woman like me
But you ain't met any
So tell me I'm pretty, please

I walked in here, hoping to hear

Tell me the second that you saw me all you thought about
Was how my dress would look falling on your floor
And tell me you ain't drunk at all, it ain't the alcohol
That's got you feeling things you ain't felt before and buy me one more

trust issues

Already told you 'bout my momma
And she already knows all about you
She don't recognize her daughter with her guard down
Already spending every weekend
Waking up laying next to you
Already jumping in the deep end
Ain't it crazy now?

To ever think I had trust issues
In a matter of one kiss, you
Got me turning one night into
Maybe the rest of my life
I haven't even said I love you
But I'm thinking that I want to
'Cause you're making me forget
Whoever gave me these trust issues

I'm getting back to never asking
Where you're going or where you've been
Don't have to be holding your hand when
Some other girl's around
No, I didn't think twice about calling you mine
And baby, it blows my mind

To ever think I had trust issues
In a matter of one kiss, you
Got me turning one night into
Maybe the rest of my life
I haven't even said I love you
But I'm thinking that I want to
'Cause you're making me forget
Whoever gave me these trust issues

I look in your eyes and it's almost like
My heart's never been broke before
My only issue is how bad I miss you
Every time you walk out that door

To ever think I had trust issues
In a matter of one kiss, you
Got me turning one night into
Maybe the rest of my life
Haven't even said I love you
But I'm thinking that I want to
'Cause you're making me forget
Whoever gave me these trust issues

Yeah, you're making me forget

hummingbird

The wind is like a memory that paces in the night
Waiting for the moment that your guard is compromised
It don't care if you're sleeping
It don't care if you're drunk
It knows the secret you're keeping
No matter where you wake up

Ooh, when the rain gets poured
The river don't run to an old love's door
Ooh, and the train don't stop
'Cause the tracks get tired of the way it talks
Sun don't burn down the whole damn sky
Just 'cause the moon ain't on its side
Ooh, and the hummingbird flies on by
'Cause it hates goodbye and so do I

The heart forgets the battle but remembers who it was
No scientist can calculate the ratio of love
It don't know if it's beating
It don't know if it's dead
It's just tired of keeping me out of my head

Ooh, when the rain gets poured
The river don't run to an old love's door
Ooh, and the train don't stop
'Cause the tracks get tired of the way it talks
Sun don't burn down the whole damn sky
Just 'cause the moon ain't on its side
Ooh, and the hummingbird flies on by
'Cause it hates goodbye and so do I

Leaves don't know why they're falling
Trees don't know why they stay
The song don't know why it started
And I'm just that way

Ooh, when the rain gets poured
The river don't run to an old love's door
Ooh, and the train don't stop
'Cause the tracks get tired of the way it talks
Sun don't burn down the whole damn sky
Just 'cause the moon ain't on its side
Ooh, and the hummingbird flies on by
'Cause it hates goodbye and so do I
And so do I
