Since you turned the tables on me I've been steady and learnin' lonely Keepin' this turntable spinnin' Everything from Jones to Jennings Slowly plannin' my survival In a three foot stack of vinyl Since you had to walk on outta here I've been havin' a record year
I bet you thought before you left I'd just sit in silence by myself Turn this house into a jail Dyin' slow in a livin' hell But love's got a funny way of keepin' score And your leavin' lit up my scoreboard I usually make it through side a sober All bets are off when I flip her over One bourbon, one scotch, one beer I'm havin' a record year
Quarter notes and Hank's half time Are poundin' on this heart of mine Song to song, I pass my time With these speakers on ten Your good and gone keeps me up all night Along with Songs In The Key Of Life I'm either gonna get over you Or I'm gonna blow out my ears Yeah, you're out there now Doin' God knows how, and I'm stuck here Havin' a record year
Your leavin' left me goin' crazy I'm countin' on a needle to save me I drop it in the groove And we go 'round and 'round And down in a spiral I guess I really oughta call and thank you I rediscovered Red Headed Stranger Got down with old James Brown And found New Grass Revival If you find your way back, I owe you a beer For my record year
Quarter notes and Hank's half time Are poundin' on this heart of mine Song to song, I pass my time With these speakers on ten Your good and gone keeps me up all night Along with Songs In The Key Of Life I'm either gonna get over you Or I'm gonna blow out my ears Yeah, you're out there now Doin' God knows how, and I'm stuck here Havin' a record year Yeah, I'm havin' a record year

Jon Quinlan from Oklahoma CityI was misinformed and lied to regarding my comments below. This song was written solely by Jeff and my origional post here was wrong. I did not mean any harm and I apologize for this. It's a great song and great work by Jeff, Eric and their entire team.
Jon Quinlan from Oklahoma CityTo clarify my comment above, I'm claiming that the woman co-wrote this song. I'm not claiming plagiarism occured by anyone at EMI.
Jon Quinlan from Oklahoma CityA woman by the name of Marlana "Lanie" LeRoy Quinlan from Midwest City, Oklahoma actually wrote this song and Jeff Hyde used it, and made a few changes after she signed an affidavit of release. She should be recognized for her talent.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
