Well I never felt nothing like I did tonight
You had the face of a boy that I met in a dream one time
Some heard it thunder and so did I
I swear it happened when your eyes met mine
Maybe it was just the way the wind blew
Maybe it was God and his son too
But in that moment I know that I knew that I, I found you

I saw a light I, Heard a bell
You were the very best feeling that I ever felt
And suddenly you are standing here, mine all mine well
I saw a light I, saw a light

Well I still can't believe someone left you laying around
Something precious like you should have already been found
What if I'd stayed home and done nothing tonight
What if you had looked left and I had looked right
For once in our lives we were both on time and now
I found you
I saw a light I, Heard a bell
You were the very best feeling that I ever felt
And suddenly you are standing here,
Mine all mine well
I saw a light I Saw

Somebody told me
When I was younger
Chance is like lightning
Love is like thunder
So I walked right over
Asked for your number
'Cause somebody told me when I was younger

I saw a light I Heard a bell
You were the very best feeling, that I ever felt
And suddenly you are standing here before my eyes
The thunder in my heart it tells me, you are mine well
I saw a light I Saw A light
Written by Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, Neil Perry

She's the sky that holds the clouds
She's the lady of the house
A blind believer in all I dare to be
There's no safer place I've found
Than the shoulder of her white night gown
Oh I've got the best and the worst of her in me
And I'd share her if I could

So the wars would all be over
'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them
We'd walk on grass that's greener
And our cares would all be freer
If the world had a mother like mine

She's our father's one great love
She's the one he wanted most
She's the light in the window of the house I grew up in
She takes the midnight call
She's the bravest of us all
Still she sings in the garden, she let's her hair down in

Oh the wars would all be over
'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder, if somebody wanted them
Tonight would be easier
And our dreams would all be deeper
If the world had a mother like mine

Don't go away, don't go away from me
Oh I understand, she is a helping hand still
I have to say

She's the sky that holds the clouds
She's the lady of our house
We all need her, but no one more than me
Oh the wars would all be over
'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder, if somebody wanted them
We'd walk on grass that's greener
And the dishes would all be cleaner
If the world had a mother like mine
Oh like mine
Written by Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Matt Ramsey

We scratched our names In that oak tree
'Cause I loved you And you loved me
A jagged little heart so the whole town knew it
Carved in the bark with an arrow through it
Well I came out here to see it one more time

And I got my chainsaw
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump
Love is shady Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw

I guess all those years They don't mean a thing
Now I can't wait To count those rings
Nothing left of us but dust and splinters
A big pile of wood to keep me warm through the winter
'Cause I don't have you

But I got my chainsaw
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump
Love is shady Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw

Just a lil' old chainsaw
I remember what you said that night
That you would love me for the rest of your life
We wrote forever with a pocketknife
But forever's goin' down tonight
'Cause I got my chainsaw
It's got to go, it's such a shame doll
But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump
Love is shady Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Love is shady Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw

I wanna wake where I was born and breathe the old air in
I need a haunt from a ghost that I knew way back then
Oh I hope they left the light on
I want someone who knows me just to say my name
To tell me though things are different now somehow I'm still the same
Oh I can almost hear them calling

I don't know if I'll be back again
It turns out they were right again
(Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
I gotta get back to me, ooh
If it's true home is where the heart is
I guess now I'm homeless
(Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
I gotta get back to me without you

For two years I've lived my life way out on a limb
I put my faith in you not knowing you would break in the end
Oh I hate feeling fallen

I don't know if I'll be back again
It turns out they were right again
(Get back to what you know) (Get back to what you do)
Gotta get back to me, ooh
If it's true home is where the heart is
I guess now I'm homeless
(Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
Gotta get back to me without you

I added rain to your ocean
What did it do, it meant nothing to you
You made grief my chief emotion

Why'd you have to do what you thought you had to do
Get back to what know

I don't know if I'll be back again
Turns out they were right again
(Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
Gotta get back to me, ooh
If it's true home is where the heart is
Oh I guess now I'm homeless
(Get back to what you know)(Get back to what you do)
Gotta get back to me without you
The slow death of a slow dance
The tailspin of a romance
Gotta get back and breathe the old air in

Here I am standing firm
As the ground shakes beneath me
I send you away with my own hand
I try and try to remember that for now it's for the better
But there's a Southern kind of tragic blowing in
Oh and it feels like the beginning of the end

Well the Alabama moon fell from the sky
And the sweet tea wells ran dry
Somewhere out there you're finding yourself
Back home it's the end of time

I'm scared to death, pick up your phone, outside
I hear the bells ringing
Bringing ruin to all that we have ever known
Pick up your phone, I need an answer
Come home and call off disaster
'Cause I fear tonight our Cotton Land might fall
Oh I'm cracking like the plaster on the wall

Oh the Alabama moon fell from the sky
And the sweet tea wells ran dry
Somewhere out there you're finding yourself
Back home it's the end of time

It's the end of time
Is it the end of all time
Or just the end of mine
Well all of the cotton it died in the fields
The little babies cried the blue from their eyes
Somewhere I'll bet you're living it up
So come home before the end

The Alabama moon, fell from the sky
And the sweet tea wells ran dry
Somewhere out there you're finding yourself
Back home it's the end of time
Come home come home and be mine
Come home and come home

Live Forever Lyrics

Written By Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, Neil Perry, Jenna Andrews, Nadir Khayat, Jakke Erixson, Karl-Ola Kjellhol

I was dreaming of war; saw that I wouldn't die
Was dreaming of shores that my ship would find
I was dreaming because it made me feel so alive
Was dreaming it all from my bed last night

You will be my only one
Hold my hand so we can run
You and I, we're staying young, yeah
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever

This time, I want it all
I want it right now, feel the fall
Go, go crazy, go, go, go crazy
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever
This time, I want it all
I want it right now, wanna feel the fall
Go, go crazy, go, go, go crazy
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever

I was feeling a storm, but it wasn't outside
Was feeling a force; I'm electrified
I was feeling my heart; there was thunder inside
Was feeling it all from my bed last night

You will be my only one
Hold my hand so we can run
You and I, we're staying young, yeah
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever

This time, I want it all
I want it right now, feel the fall
Go, go crazy, go, go, go crazy
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever
This time, I want it all
I want it right now, wanna feel the fall
Go, go crazy, go, go, go crazy
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever

All the things that I don't know
All the dreams that I've been shown
All the ways that it could end tonight
Close your eyes
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever

This time, I want it all
I want it right now, feel the fall
Go, go crazy, go, go, go crazy
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever
This time, I want it all
I want it right now, wanna feel the fall
Go, go crazy, go, go, go crazy
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever
Hey
Forever
We're gonna live, we're gonna live forever
