  • I thought by now I'd have it figured out
    How not to make the easy thing so hard to do
    I bet that I'd be further down this road
    If I could read the signs that point me to the truth

    I never planned on being nothin' but a cowboy
    But somewhere I picked up this old guitar
    Girl all I can say is that I'm sorry
    If I get kind of careless with your heart

    All the headlights
    All the midnights
    Chasing all that empty, still ain't got it right
    All the crazy
    All the gypsy
    I guess all I'm sayin' is forgive me
    If I don't know what I'm doing
    I'm still learnin' to be human

    So far I've been good at burning bridges
    Strike a match and ride right out of town
    Bless your heart for never trying to fix me
    Or quit me, or slow me down

    All the headlights
    All the midnights
    Chasing all that empty, still ain't got it right
    All the crazy
    All the gypsy
    I guess all I'm sayin' is forgive me
    If I don't know what I'm doing
    I'm still learnin' to be human

    All the highways
    Playin' outlaw
    Rollin' outta nowhere with the breaks off
    All the crazy
    And the whiskey
    Wakin' up and wonderin' what hit me
    Whoa, forgive me, I really don't know what I'm doing
    'Cause I'm still learning to be human
    Mmm, still learning to be human
