Space Cowboy

Album: Golden Hour (2018)
  • You look out the window
    While I look at you
    Sayin' I don't know
    Would be like saying that the sky ain't blue
    And boots weren't made for sitting by the door
    Since you don't wanna stay anymore

    You can have your space, cowboy
    I ain't gonna fence you in
    Go on ride away, in your Silverado
    Guess I'll see you 'round again
    I know my place, and it ain't with you
    Sunsets fade, and love does too
    Yeah, we had our day in the sun
    When a horse wants to run, there ain't no sense in closing the gate
    You can have your space, cowboy

    After the gold rush, there ain't no reason to stay
    Shoulda learned from the movies that good guys don't run away
    But roads weren't made to not go down
    And there ain't room for both of us in this town

    So you can have your space, cowboy
    I ain't gonna fence you in
    Go on ride away, in your Silverado
    I'll see you around again
    'Cause I know my place, and it ain't with you
    Sunsets fade, and love does too
    We had our day in the sun
    When a horse wants to run, ain't no sense in closing the gate
    So you can have your space

    You can have your space, cowboy
    I ain't gonna fence you in
    Go on ride away, in your Silverado
    I'll see you around again
    'Cause I know my place, and it ain't with you
    Sunsets fade, and love does too
    Oh, we had our day in the sun
    When a horse wants to run, ain't no sense in closing the gate
    You can have your space
    Yeah, you can have your space
    You can have your space
