  • Boy, don’t wait, don’t think, don’t lock the door behind you
    Run and jump into your truck and hit the gas
    Burn some rubber up
    Yeah, your time’s running out, do it now

    Take a shortcut, take a back road, take the shoulder to the exit
    Skip the parking, screw the ticket, hit the curb and leave it sitting
    Whatever it takes, you gotta get to that gate

    She’s crying on a suitcase, sitting at the airport
    Waiting on the airplane ‘bout to take her out of here
    They’re gonna call her number, she’ll sit down by the window
    The plane’ll leave the runway and fade into a goodbye sky
    You’ve gotta run while you’ve still got time
    She’s crying on a suitcase

    Admit it boy, you blew it, really messed it up
    You can make excuses if you really wanna lose her
    It’s all on the line, do or die time, getting on your knees time
    Tell her that you want her, need her, love her, gotta have her
    Everything good in your life begins and ends with her
    Lose your pride while you can, come on, man, be a man

    She’s crying on a suitcase, sitting at the airport
    Waiting on the airplane ‘bout to take her out of here
    They’re gonna call her number, she’ll sit down by the window
    The plane’ll leave the runway and fade into a goodbye sky
    You’ve gotta run while you’ve still got time
    She’s crying on a suitcase

    She’s crying on a suitcase
    Waiting on the airplane ‘bout to take her out of here
    They’re gonna call her number, she’ll sit down by the window
    The plane’ll leave the runway and fade into a goodbye sky
    You’ve gotta run while you’ve still got time, you've still got time
    She’s crying on a suitcase
    Waiting on the airplane
    She’ll fade into a goodbye sky Writer/s: LEE MILLER, NEIL THRASHER, TOM SHAPIRO
