Speak Now

Album: Farmer's Daughter (2010)
  • There ain't no reason for me
    To hang around this town no more.
    Gonna pack it up, move on out,
    And start searchin' for the shore.
    Sell my life as I know it
    To anyone with land to buy

    'Cause it ain't worth much to me
    To stay here and sit around and cry.
    And if you think you're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Speak now darlin' or you will never know.

    Well I don't care if you like it
    'cause honey this is not your life.
    I will never be held prisoner,
    I will never be your wife.
    Learned that friends are overrated
    And lovers come and go
    And if all you do is dream about it
    Then you've got nothin' to show
    But if you think you're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Speak now darlin' or you will never know.

    'Cause once the engine starts turnin'
    And these wheels they hit the road
    I ain't ever comin' back to this town called Chicago.
    Oh, I'm leavin' it all behind me
    There ain't no place that I call home.
    That I'm tearin' this heart right off of my sleeve
    And I'm turnin' it into stone.

    Oh I think I'm gonna miss you when I'm gone.
    Oh, so kiss me once, kiss me twice
    Maybe I'll stay for just one more night.
    And honey, say what you feel, please mean what you say
    I wanna hold onto you one more day.
    But if you think you're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Speak now darlin' or you will never know
    Speak now darlin' or you will never know
    Speak now darlin' or you will never know Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
