Sounds Better In The Song (Drive-By Truckers) Lyrics

When I saw her standing there with her bright eyes and shining hair she was looking back at me
Some are meant to sing, some are meant to talk, and some aren’t meant to say a thing
When she opened up her mouth and that sweet voice came out I lost track of my own name
Now she’s found herself and I lost mine and I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything

Well the drifter he holds on to his youth just like it was money in the bank
‘Lord knows I can’t change’ sounds better in the song than it does with hell to pay
I might as well slip the ring on her finger from the window of a van as it drove away
‘Cause now she’s found herself and I lost mine and I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything

Dreams are given to you when you’re young enough to dream them, before they can do you any harm
They don’t start to hurt unless you try to hold on to ’em after seeing what they really are
She used to dream ’em with me every single crazy one ’till they started hurting her too, now she’s got some of her own
And outgrowing me might be the best thing for her she’s ever done

A light that’s meant to shine as bright as hers can’t be kept in the shadows for too long
A heart that wants to live and a soul that wants to give can’t just sit at home alone
Lord she gave me everything, I never wanted anything, I couldn’t give just what was inside of me
Now she’s found herself and I lost mine and I’m just another guy who can’t give her anything
