  • Red roadside wild flower if I'd only picked you
    Took you home set you on the counter
    Oh, at least a time or two
    Maybe she'd thought it through

    Yellow sunset slowly dipping down in the rear view
    Oh, how she'd love to sit and watch you
    I could have done that a whole lot more
    If I hadn't been so stubborn, been so selfish
    Thought about her more, thought about me less
    Joked and make her laugh, held her when she cried
    A little more that, maybe I

    Wouldn't be driving like hell flying like crazy down the highway
    Calling everyone we know stopping any place she might be
    Going any place she might go beating on the dash
    Screaming out her name at the windshield tears soaking up my face
    If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeah maybe
    She wouldn't be gone, she wouldn't be gone

    She warned me it was coming said if I didn't change
    She was leaving
    I just didn't believe she would ever really walk out,
    God, I believe her now
    Called her mamma, cried like a baby to her best friend
    If they've seen her, they ain't sayin', they ain't sayin'
    Now, I'm cursing like a fool, praying it ain't too late
    All I wanna do is fix my mistakes.

    Find her beg her for one more try, until then damn it I'll
    Be driving like hell flying like crazy down the highway
    Calling everyone we know stopping any place she might be
    Going any place she might go beating on the dash
    Screaming out her name at the windshield tears soaking up my face
    If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeah maybe
    She wouldn't be gone

    I wouldn't be beating on the dash
    Screaming out her name at the windshield tears soaking up my face
    If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeah maybe
    She wouldn't be gone

    Red roadside wild flower if I'd only picked you
    Took you home set you on the counter, oh at least a time or two
    Maybe she'd thought it through Writer/s: CORY BATTEN, JENNIFER ADAN
