  • Standin' by the door, checkin' my hair
    Waitin' on you to take me nowhere
    We were always lookin' for a rock n' roll Saturday night
    Sittin' on hold with the radio station
    Listen all night to hear my dedication
    A song to tell the whole town you're mine (that's right)

    We sing like we wrote every word to the whole damn thing
    Like nothing will ever change and we dance
    Like time wasn't really slipping through our hands
    Oh, when you said I loved you, you mighta been lying
    But it sure sounded good at the time

    Just a hand-me-down, a Pontiac
    Let's see how many friends we can pile in the back
    Saved all summer for a ticket on the front row (let's go)
    Didn't have a plan and we ran outta money
    Car broke down but it's still kinda funny
    'Cause we hitched a ride with some hippy guy
    And barely made it to the show and

    We sing like we wrote every word to the whole damn thing
    Like nothing will ever change and we dance
    Like time wasn't really slipping through our hands
    Made it back alive, made up a good lie
    But it sure sounded good at the time

    Aw, yeah, we did some wrong
    We did it right
    But it sure sounded so good at the time
    You were mine, alright
    Woaaah, well alright

    And we sing like we wrote every word to the whole damn thing
    Like nothing will ever change and we dance
    Like time wasn't really slipping through our hands
    We swore we'd never say goodbye
    And it sure sounded good at the time Writer/s: BRAD WARREN, BRETT WARREN, CHARLES KELLEY, DAVE HAYWOOD, HILLARY SCOTT
