What I See

Album: Yet to be titled (2019)
  • What you see is an exit sign
    I see a road that goes back in time
    To high school glory and all of those stories
    I stretch from time to time

    What you see is an old scoreboard
    I see goin' for it on fourth
    Yeah, it's just a game but small town fame
    Still buys me a beer and more

    What I see
    Is a little piece of heaven this side of eternity
    And all I know
    Are these two-lane roads are the ones that's gonna take me home
    Where I belong
    Pride grows strong and love runs deep
    Deeper than the roots of an old oak tree
    Can't nobody take that from me
    See what you want but this is what I see

    What you see is a courthouse clock
    I see me wishin' time would stop
    'Cause something good just might
    Happen past midnight in a Sonic parking lot

    What you see is a real sharp curve
    I see a real hard lesson learned
    I walked away from that without the scratches
    Lord knows I deserved

    'Cause what I see
    Is a little piece of heaven this side of eternity
    And all I know
    Are these two-lane roads are the ones that's gonna take me home
    Where I belong
    Pride grows strong and love runs deep
    Deeper than the roots of an old oak tree
    Can't nobody take that from me
    See what you want but this is what I see

    What you see are some Stars and Stripes
    I see boys that ain't afraid to fight
    For the red, white and blue so me and you
    Can live this kind of life

    What I see
    Is a little piece of heaven this side of eternity
    And all I know
    Are these two-lane roads are the ones that's gonna take me home
    Where I belong
    Pride grows strong and love runs deep
    Deeper than the roots of an old oak tree
    Can't nobody take that from me
    See what you want, see what you want, this is what I see
    Oh, it's what I see, what I see
