  • Girl, I know I don't know you
    But your pretty little eyes so blue,
    Are pulling me in like the moon on your skin
    I'm so glad you trusted me to slide up on this dusty seat
    And let your hair down, and get outta town

    Got the stars comin' out,
    Over my hood
    And all I know now
    Is it's going good

    You got your hands up,
    You're rocking in my truck
    You got the radio on,
    You're singing every song
    I'm set on cruise control
    I'm slowly losing hold of everything I got
    You're looking so damn hot
    And I don't know what road we're on,
    Or where we've been from starin' at you
    Girl, all I know is I don't want this night to end

    Gonna cuss the morning,
    When it comes
    'Cause I know that the rising sun,
    Ain't no good for me
    'Cause you'll have to leave
    Gonna make the most of every mile
    Do anything to make your smile,
    Land on my lips
    And get drunk on your kiss
    The clock on the dash,
    Says 3:35
    There's plenty of gas,
    And the night's still alive

    You got your hands up,
    You're rocking in my truck
    You got the radio on,
    You're singing every song
    I'm set on cruise control
    I'm slowing losing hold of everything I got
    You're looking so damn hot
    And I don't know what road we're on,
    Or where we've been from starin' at you
    Girl, all I know is I don't want this night to end

    You got your hands up,
    You're rocking in my truck
    You got the radio on,
    You're singing every song
    I'm set on cruise control
    I'm slowing losing hold of everything I've got
    You're looking so damn hot
    And I don't know what road we're on,
    Or where we've been from starin' at you
    Girl, all I know is I don't want this night to end

    I don't want this night to end
    No I don't want this night to end
