Settle Me Down

Album: The Highway Kind (2020)

  • What good's a highway without a destination?
    What good's a house without someone to come home to?
    What's a night at the top of the world without you there beside me?
    Naw, there ain't no good in it without you

    You settle me down when I go too far, when I burn too fast, when I lose my way
    Hold onto me, whisper to my soul, put my heart at ease when I'm 'bout to break
    Always got the wind at my back, but you still love me when I live like that
    Open my eyes, keep me around, pull me back in, and settle me down
    Settle me down

    Still got the tendency to lean over the edges
    I still got the urge to chase a dream until it ends
    You don't fence me in, yeah, you understand
    But when I can't remember, you remind me who I am

    You settle me down when I go too far, when I burn too fast, when I lose my way
    Hold onto me, whisper to my soul, put my heart at ease when I'm 'bout to break
    Always got the wind at my back, but you still love me when I live like that
    Open my eyes, keep me around, pull me back in, and settle me down

    Ooh

    Always got the wind at my back, but you still love me when I live like that
    Open my eyes, keep me around, pull me back in, and settle me down
    Follow me, I need you right now, cover me up, and settle me down (mm)
