Here With Me Instead

In my car with the soft top down
Driving down an old country road
I’m taking it all in but my head’s about to explode

When you looked at me that way
I can still remember the very day
I find myself smiling just thinking of you
The world through your love is such a great view

With thoughts of you running though my head
I feel like I’m in a movie but I wish you were here with me instead
Here with me instead

That farm over there has its own story
Of hard work and love, and maybe faded glory
We’ll have our time just you and me girl
I wouldn’t trade it for the whole world

I know I’m in love and it’s so surprising
Being part of your life is so revising
I’m so in love that I don’t want to sleep
Life with you is better than a dream

With thoughts of you running though my head
I feel like I’m in a movie but I wish you were here with me instead
Here with me instead

As the world fly’s by my thoughts are in rhyme
And your simple sweet face conquers my whole mind
I’ve stopped somewhere to take in the view
My love for you baby will forever renew

With thoughts of you running though my head
I feel like I’m in a movie but I wish you were here with me instead
Here with me instead
Here with me instead
