Some Habits

  • Yeah, I'm rough around the edges, on the surface, I ain't perfect
    Still need a little smoothin' out
    It's hard to shift gears after years of going one way
    And one day turnin' around
    Like water tanks, barns, and rusted junk cars
    Get saved by a coat of paint
    It takes somebody like you to make a sinner like me
    Wanna try to be a little more saint

    'Cause good bourbon is hard to put down
    That high road is hard to stay on
    That Good Book, it's hard to pick up
    That old me is hard to turn off
    Girl, I've been tryin' like hell
    Might be gettin' ahead of myself
    But the longer I love you, the more I know
    Some habits ain't meant to be broke
    No, no, no, no, no

    Yeah, habits like lyin' next to you, like making you laugh
    Like filling up a wall full of photographs
    Like learnin' how to listen, red light quick kissin'
    Sunday mornin' amenin', third pew forgivin'
    Like hometown walkin', mean nothin' talkin'
    Together every settin' sundown
    Like through the house dancin', them hardwoods catchin'
    Our clothes fallin' to the ground

    Good bourbon is hard to put down
    That high road is hard to stay on
    That Good Book, it's hard to pick up
    That old me is hard to turn off
    Girl, I've been tryin' like hell
    Might be gettin' ahead of myself
    But the longer I love you, the more I know
    Some habits ain't meant to be broke
    Oh, no, no

    Yeah, a man's gotta know when it's time to let go
    What he's gotta outgrow and can't
    And as long as it's you that I don't gotta lose
    Then everything else I can

    Yeah, good bourbon is hard to put down
    That high road is hard to stay on
    That Good Book, it's hard to pick up
    That old me is hard to turn off
    Girl, I've been tryin' like hell
    Might be gettin' ahead of myself
    But the longer I love you, the more I know
    Some habits ain't meant to be broke

    Yeah, some habits ain't meant to be broke
    Like lovin' you, like lovin' you Writer/s: Chris LaCorte, Joshua Miller, Scooter Carusoe
