  • I'm a picture-perfect painting of imperfection
    I'm a walking definition of unsettled and restless
    The needle in my compass points anywhere but home
    I thought I'd always be alone, 'cause

    I never wanted to tap my brakes
    I never wanted to settle down
    I was always one foot out the door
    I never thought about turnin' 'round
    Never saw myself with a white picket fence dug into the ground
    Never 'til now

    Out of all the prayers I've prayed
    You're Heaven's answer
    Out of all the hell I've been through
    I never thought you'd be out there
    But thank God you were right there, 'cause

    I never wanted to tap my brakes
    I never wanted to settle down
    I was always one foot out the door
    I never thought about turnin' 'round
    Never saw myself with a white picket fence dug into the ground
    Never 'til now

    Never 'til you walked into that bar
    Never 'til we talked over that song
    Never 'til we danced 'til closin' time
    Never 'til you proved me wrong
    'Bout the kind of love you fall so hard, you never hit the ground
    Never 'til now

    Oh, never 'til now (mm, never 'til now)
    Yeah, the kind of love you fall so hard, you never hit the ground
    Never 'til now

    Never 'til you walked into that bar
    Never 'til we talked over that song
    Never 'til we danced 'til closin' time
    Never 'til you proved me wrong
    'Bout the kind of love you fall so hard, you never hit the ground
    Never 'til now
    Oh
    Yeah, the kind of love you fall so hard, you never hit the ground
