Track Name: You Better Run Stevie Summers, My Family Owns This City
I was drinking in the mountains with a couple friends in Arvin
Don't Worry I'll be good by the time I need to pick you up... bad habits that I KNOW THAT NEED SOME GIVING UP
I Overheard what's wrong, what's wrong:
You've been spending time with boys that just love to do you wrong
It was unspoken, yet we both knew we were speaking from experience
when we agreed that boys and girls that aren't meant to be just needa cool it, they needa quit it, rather than forcing commitment, which always builds resentment
On a lighter note we stayed up watching "King Bach" Vines at a Denny's, 'till 2 in the morning
I could tell with me you didn't feel the need to be 2 on 'cause our chemistry was just too on

I overheard you wanna stay the night so bring the wine, but with you I wanna do this right I don't wanna touch on the "first night"

We sat in silence in my car, the way you looked at me was "Crazier than Love"

My homie pointed at a girl that was walking by
He said, "Oh the things I would do to her body right"
you know... insensitive shit that you say when you're with the guys
but the thought of another man saying some shit like that if you were walking by
Well frankly I'd grab a knife, sever his tongue and then cut out his fucking eyes
Mmm I'm being a hypocrite.. aren't I?
I'm weak-minded, needed a good girl to pry my eyes open to see all this sexual tension between boys and girls all my age need attention
but... the other night I met this girl with a turtle-neck dress, with a spirit so warm that she kept on that turtle-neck dress

We sat in silence in my car, the way I looked at you was, "Crazier than Love"

I overheard you wanna stay the night so bring the wine but with you I wanna do this right, I don't wanna touch on the "first night"

And We danced
And We LAUGHED(ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)
I played that song, "Hold On We're Going Home" at least a Hundred Times!
I tried to rest my head on your shoulders at least a Hundred times
I tried to kiss the freckles on your shoulders at least a Hundred times
I tried to run my fingers through your hair at least a Hundred times...

I Know we both have our pasts
We both did shit we're not proud of
I know we both have our pasts
We would've never met with out it

She said, "I fucking HATE the fact that I wasn't your 'first', and you weren't mine"
Is it too late to blame our mistakes on the influence pop culture's left behind?
Fuck it that shit doesn't even matter
I found you and now you're all that matters
I could die a happy boy if I had heard you said you "love me" at least a hundred fucking times
