Dark Horse

Album: Dark Horse (2018)
  • People always ask why I wear black
    Where'd I get my style and why I never smile in pictures
    They ask me what I drink, I'll sip on anything
    But I'm a little more California smoke than liquor

    No, it ain't that I'm self-conscious, I'm just conscious of myself

    I'll side with the outsiders
    Those long-shot last-round fighters
    Anyone who ain't afraid to stray off course
    My heart bleeds for country music
    Where the honest outlaw truth is
    No, I ain't no white knight
    I'm a little more
    Dark horse

    No, I don't go to church, can't quote a bible verse
    I couldn't sing a song, that don't mean that I don't talk to Jesus
    Girls say I push them off, that I can't open up
    But I ain't afraid of love, when I say it I just want to mean it

    Yeah, I side with the outsiders
    Those long-shot last-round fighters
    Anyone who ain't afraid to stray off course
    My heart bleeds for country music
    Where the honest outlaw truth is
    No, I ain't no white knight
    I'm a little more
    Dark horse, ooh yeah
    Dark horse

    No, it ain't that I'm self-conscious, I'm just conscious of myself
    And I don't know how to be nobody else

    So I side with the outsiders
    Those long-shot last-round fighters
    Anyone who ain't afraid to stray off course
    My heart bleeds for country music
    Where my honest outlaw truth is
    No, I ain't no white knight
    I'm a little more
    Dark horse, ooh yeah
    Hm, dark horse
    Dark horse, ooh yeah
    Hm, dark horse Writer/s: Andrew Deroberts, Andrew Paul Albert, Devin Dawson
