Lately I've been thinking on how all this came about I grew up and out of a small town Couldn't wait to get myself out me and my best friend We grew up driving around looking for that way out Said we got to keep it moving keep it together 'cause the rhythm never let me down My guitar in hand I was only 16 then Can't even count the doors the doors that slammed on me they said "you'll never make it don't you even try, 'cause this world it's gonna eat you alive." But we got to keep it moving keep it together 'cause the rhythm never let me down We got to keep it moving keep it together 'cause the rhythm never let me down no it never let me down

I was made to withstand the most unforgiving nature of man Like a desert rose I only need a little bit of water in the driest of this land But when it gets too hard for me when the Gulf of Mexico looks like it's waving good bye to me you know where I want to be It's a hard road it's a long road to travel It's a hard road through the worst and for the better It's a long road to Tucson, Arizona Driving up through the clouds Catalina Highway winds up around my favorite part of your town We pull the car over inhale the pines, walk through them together and it warms my hear that you're happy I hope someday I can be But when it gets too hard for me when the Gulf of Mexico looks like it's waving good bye to me You know where I want to be It's a hard road it's a long road to travel It's a hard road through the worst and for the better It's a long road to Tucson, Arizona It's a hard road it's a long road to travel It's a hard road through the worst and for the better It's a long road to Tucson, Arizona

Wind blows all the time on the east coast I lean my back against a place I can hide where the high tide carved a space I can conceal myself from everyone else and I don't even know why that moon looks down on you when you refuse to move in and out with the motions Your love is a sunburn on my face your love is that old t-shirt that used to take that pain away You were supposed to be the one who keeps me safe Now I'm digging through box of records you were throwing away when I found myself I tell everyone else that I don't even know why I tried when my life stopped, that needle dropped now I'm letting go of the let downs Your love is a sunburn on my face your love is that old t-shirt that used to take that pain away Your love is a sunburn on my face oh your love, your love is that old t-shirt that used to take that pain away and I don't even know why I tried ooh, no I don't even know why

I used to rely on the way you'd help me get my shine on there was a mystery around you that nobody could put their finger on and I didn't know myself and you played that version of you so well that I couldn't tell you poured yourself into all the cracks I couldn't fill There ain't no place you can hide where I can't find you now and ain't nothing that you're gonna say I haven't already thought about You really take my breath away it's like I couldn't unravel the lie where it started or the myth that you imparted Now there's an empty room and it echoes where your heart lived in that space it left behind when it departed Now there ain't no place you can hide where I can't find you now and aint nothing that you're gonna say I haven't already figured out and you can pull down that shade take all of that light away I never wanted to lose you darlin that's what the hardest part is And there ain't no place you can hide where I can't find you now and aint nothing that you're gonna say I haven't already figured out and you can pull down that shade take all of that light away I never wanted to lose you darlin that's what the hardest part is It's what the hardest part is never wanted to lose never wanted to lose you darlin

Don't you know all I need is you? When I saw you standing in the background and your blue eyes shining through the crowd might swallow you whole again but I'd still look, I'd still look I'd still look, you know that I'd still find you Don't you know all I need is you? Don't you know all I need is you? Then I saw you standing in the foreground and them blue eyes held mine too the crowd would never swallow you whole again 'cause I know now, I know I know now how you feel it too if I could, I'd do it all over again keep you to myself I wish that night would never end Don't you know all I need is you? Don't you know all I need is you? all I need is you Don't you know all I need is you? Don't you know all I need is you? Don't you know all I need is you? Don't you know all I need is you?
