  • The radio and a sundress
    Making my world all a mess
    Back corner of a cornfield
    Bottle tops and the truth spills
    Pull the lever, lay the seat back laughin'
    You slippin' off your shoes
    While the dashboard speakers sing every word of Night Moves

    I wanna be that song that gets you high
    Makes you dance, makes you fall
    That melody rewinds years
    Once disappear, makes time stall
    Wanna be those words that fill you up
    Pull your windows down and keeps you young
    Makes you believe you're right where you belong
    I wanna be that song
    I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be that song
    Oh, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna

    I wanna stand with you in the third row
    The window booth at a bar
    Back pew on a Sunday pourin' out your heart (pourin' out your heart)
    When the bleachers are crowded
    When you're sittin' all alone (all alone)
    When the rain is pourin' and you need something to take you home

    Let me be that song that gets you high
    Makes you dance, makes you fall
    That melody rewinds years
    Once disappear, makes time stall
    Wanna be those words that fill you up
    Pull your windows down and keeps you young
    Makes you believe you're right where you belong
    I wanna be that song
    I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be that song
    Oh, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna

    When you're searching the horizon (searching the horizon)
    And when your eyes look back
    When you're standing in the moment
    Every life has a soundtrack

    Oh, I wanna be, I wanna be, oh I wanna be
    I wanna be that song that gets you high
    Makes you dance, makes you fall
    That melody rewinds years
    Once disappear, makes time stall
    Wanna be those words that fill you up
    Pull your windows down and keeps you young
    Makes you believe you're right where you belong
    I wanna be that song

    When the highway's calling
    When the bottle's dry
    When the sky is falling and you're asking yourself why
    yeah, oh, I wanna be, yeah, ooh Writer/s: Brett Eldredge, Ross Copperman, Travis Hill
