Hit the Ground Runnin'

Album: Defying Gravity (2009)
  • Well if you ever said goodbye
    I wouldn't waste all of my time cryin'
    I wouldn't sit home alone wondering where I went wrong
    I'd be rockin' on out of here
    Baby, faster than a rolling tear
    Ain't no grass gonna grow under me when you're gone
    No, I won't stay down for long

    I'd hit the ground
    I'd hit the ground runnin'
    I know exactly what I'd do, honey
    I'd hit the ground
    I'd hit the ground runnin'
    I'd hit the ground runnin' after you

    Yeah woo

    I'm gonna stop in
    For a couple things I gotta pick up
    Like some pretty red flowers and a store bought card
    That say what I really feel
    That I need ya' and I always will
    And the three little words that used to come hard
    Then I jump in back in my car and then

    I'd hit the ground
    I'd hit the ground runnin'
    I know exactly what I'd do
    I'd hit the ground
    I'd hit the ground runnin'
    I'd hit the ground runnin' after you
    There ain't no doubt, I ain't that proud
    There ain't no doubt about what I'd do
    I'd hit the ground
    Hit the ground
    Hit the ground runnin' after you, yes, I would, woo

    So if you gotta go baby, I won't stop you
    And I won't sit around and miss you, no, no, no
    'Cause if you leave I'm a comin' with you
    Comin' with you, baby

    I'd hit the ground
    I'd hit the ground runnin'
    I know exactly what I'd do, sugar
    I'd hit the ground
    I'd hit the ground runnin'
    I'd hit the ground runnin' after you
    There ain't no doubt, I ain't that proud
    There ain't no doubt about what I'd do
    I'd hit the ground Writer/s: JERRY FLOWERS, TONY MARTIN, MARK NESLER
