Through My Ray-Bans

Album: yet to be titled (2020)
  • Yeah, I know a place where kings and paupers
    Drink with the dreamers and the cheaters and the longers
    And the dealers deal aces from a loaded stack of cards
    Now what if I told you a place existed
    Where the magic in the air tastes like moonlight on the lips
    And no hand in the deck beat a pair of hearts

    Everybody's got their arms around
    Everybody else's shoulders
    Guarding against the world outside
    Like an army of Friday night soldiers
    The battle wages tomorrow
    But tonight you don't give a damn
    Wish you could stay the way I see you
    Through my Ray-Bans

    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh
    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh

    I see a place where a moment in time
    Is a kaleidoscope of color on a canvas of white
    Where the voices roar at the noise of the poet's whine
    Would you believe my story, oh, about what I'm selling
    If I told you the tale I'm in the middle of telling
    It's as true as the blue in the grass or the green in the sky

    Everybody's got their arms around
    Everybody else's shoulders
    Guarding against the world outside
    Like an army of Friday night soldiers
    The battle wages tomorrow
    But tonight we don't give a damn
    Wish you could stay the way I see you
    Through my Ray-Bans

    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh
    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh

    Everybody's got their arms around
    Everybody else's shoulders (ooh, woo ooh, ooh)
    Guarding against the world outside
    Like an army of Friday night soldiers
    The battle wages tomorrow
    But tonight we've got a drink in our hand
    Wish you could stay the way I see you
    Through my Ray-Bans

    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh, woo ooh
    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh, woo ooh
    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh, woo ooh
    Ooh, woo ooh, ooh, woo ooh Writer/s: Eric Church, Barry George Dean, Luke Robert Laird
