  • I had one saying we were done
    In a Baton Rouge college bar
    It kinda came out of nowhere
    Man, I took that one pretty hard
    And I had another one in another town
    And I spent a whole lot of nights missing her
    'Til it all went black, she stopped texting back
    And I finally got the picture

    Here's to the almost, so close
    It's over out of the blues
    Here's to the hey I think we need to talk
    And the it ain't me it's you's
    And here's to the tears and beers and wasted years
    On the weeds that looked like daisies
    I wouldn't be sittin' here next to you
    If it weren't for the almost maybes

    Here's to the one that my family thought
    Was gonna make me drop to one knee
    And I tried like hell, but I couldn't help
    My mama loved her more than me
    And to all those July crushes
    Turning into September leavin's
    Goodbyes that didn't feel good back then
    It happened for a real good reason

    Here's to the almost, so close
    It's over out of the blues
    Here's to the hey I think we need to talk
    And the it ain't me it's you's
    And here's to the tears and beers and wasted years
    On the weeds that looked like daisies
    I wouldn't be sittin' here next to you
    If it weren't for the almost maybes

    If not for the almost maybes (yeah the almost maybes)

    Wouldn't be no all alone's
    Wouldn't be no sad songs
    Wouldn't be no had enough, pick yourself up and get to moving on's
    From the didn't work outs
    The girls next door and the bat shit crazies
    There wouldn't be no you and me right now
    If it weren't for the almost maybes

    Here's to the almost, so close
    It's over out of the blues
    Here's to the hey I think we need to talk
    And the it ain't me it's you's
    And here's to the tears and beers and wasted years
    On the weeds that looked like daisies
    I wouldn't be sittin' here next to you
    If it weren't for the almost maybes

    Not for the almost maybes (almost maybes)
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh)

    No, it wouldn't be no you and me right now
    If it weren't for the almost maybes Writer/s: Hillary Lindsey, Jesse Frasure, Jordan Davis
