  • Can I sit next to you?
    Can you sit next to me?
    Get the stars out your eyes
    Come and bring them to me

    I been down so long
    I've been working on a plan, yeah
    It's just that I been down so long
    I gotta give me my mind what I can

    Can I sit next to you?
    Can you sit next to me?
    I walked to Memphis alone
    'Cause you'd do it for me
    Ooh, I know you would

    All of the kicks from the sticks
    All the kicks that we knew
    I put all that aside
    Concentrate on you

    All the kicks from the sticks
    All the hits that we took
    All them stitches we got
    All our brains so cooked

    Ah ah ah, some day I'm gonna get where you are
    I've been down so long
    Been down but now I gotta get lifted up

    I'm gonna walk a tightrope
    Gonna get kicks every night
    No one's holding me back
    No one's changing my mind no more

    Gonna walk a tightrope
    Gonna get kicks every night
    No one's holding me back
    No one's changing my mind

    Get the stars out your eyes
    Come and sit next to me
    Under Tennessee skies
    Down on South Front Street

    Ah ah ah, I've been working on a plan, yeah
    I been down so long
    Been down but now I gotta get lifted up Writer/s: Britt Daniel
