Settling Down

  • Should I give up sunsets for marigold mornings?
    Should I look for rainbows or wait for the rain?
    Is happiness on the highway? Or it is parked in the driveway?
    Should I lean on you, babe? Or should you lean on me?

    Am I looking for comfort? Am I looking for an escape?
    Am I looking for you? Am I looking the other way?

    I'm a wild child and a homing pigeon
    Caravan and an empty kitchen
    Bare feet on the tile with my head up in the clouds
    I'm one heart goin' both directions
    One love and a couple of questions
    Am I settlin' up or settlin' down?
    Am I settlin' up or settlin' down?

    I could plant a pretty garden, just send myself flowers
    Be a jet-set Friday or a Sunday hometown girl
    I could stay a little lonely or let you get to know me
    Yeah, I could love a picket fence if it wrapped around the world

    I'm a wild child and a homing pigeon
    Caravan and an empty kitchen
    Bare feet on the tile with my head up in the clouds
    I'm one heart goin' both directions
    One love and a couple of questions
    Am I settlin' up or settlin' down?

    Am I looking for comfort? Am I looking for an escape?
    Am I looking for you? Am I looking the other way?

    I'm a wild child and a homing pigeon
    Caravan and an empty kitchen
    Bare feet on the tile with my head up in the clouds
    I'm one heart goin' both directions
    One love and a couple of questions
    Am I settlin' up or settlin' down?
    Am I settlin' up or settlin' down? Writer/s: Luke Dick, Miranda Lambert, Natalie Nicole Hemby
