Love Triangle

Album: WildHorse (2016)
  • Sittin' on the front step
    Little white suitcase
    Hearing that diesel
    'Fore it hit the front gate
    His headlights burnin' down a Friday night

    Southern Belle statue
    Standing in the screen door
    Watching her whole world
    Head for an old Ford
    With a man that can't look her in the eye

    Then I run, to him
    Big hug, jump in
    And I cry for her
    Out the window

    Some mommas and daddies
    Are loving in a straight line
    Take forever to heart
    And take a long sweet ride
    But some mommas and daddies
    Let their heart strings tear and tangle
    And some of us get stuck
    In a love triangle

    Bowling alley burger
    Fries and a milkshake
    Heading to the same old
    Two-dollar matinee
    Baby, how's your school been
    and how's your mom?

    Patsy Cline echoes
    Back off the dashboard
    Staring at my boots
    And the dusty old floorboards
    Baby, two weeks ain't really all that long

    Then I run, to her
    Wrap my arms, around her skirt
    And I cry for him
    Out the window

    Some mommas and daddies
    Are loving in a straight line
    Take forever to heart
    And take a long sweet ride
    But some mommas and daddies
    Let their heart strings tear and tangle
    And some of us get stuck
    In a love triangle (ooh)

    Ooh

    In a love triangle, yeah

    Ooh
    Ooh

    Some mommas and daddies
    Are loving in a straight line
    Take forever to heart
    And take a long sweet ride
    But some mommas and daddies
    Let their heart strings tear and tangle, oh

    And some mommas and daddies
    Ran outta love in ninety-four
    And some mommas and daddies
    Don't even talk no more
    And some mommas and daddies
    Let their heart strings tear and tangle

    And some of us get stuck
    And some of us grow up
    In a love triangle

    Ooh
