Guess You Had To Be There

Album: No Pier Pressure (2015)
  • Well I guess you had to be there
    Such a different place
    And I was cruisin' along
    Never thinkin' that we'd ever change
    Yeah I guess you had to be there
    It was a hell of a ride
    Lines were blurry and hurried
    But it felt like the stars had aligned

    We were sharin' a new day
    Singing a new song
    And everyone's problems
    Were suddenly gone
    Everything I ever wanted
    Is right before my face
    Tell all the beautiful people
    Were always at my place

    Well I guess you had to be there
    All we wanted was more
    There were winners and losers
    And people passed out on my floor
    And you know you should've called me
    For that real good time
    Guess you missed some of the gold
    When you're too busy chasin' the shine

    We were sharin' a new day
    Singing a new song
    And everyone's problems
    Were suddenly gone
    Everything I ever wanted
    Is right before my face
    'Cause all the beautiful people
    Were always at my place

    We were sharing a new day
    Sipping on a new wine
    And everyone's problems
    Were suddenly mine
    And all you ever wanted
    Was right in front of your face
    Starts as a good thing
    Turns into a hate Writer/s: KACEY MUSGRAVES, BRIAN WILSON, JOE THOMAS, ANDREW SELGADO
