Maybe You Should

Album: The Distance (2009)
  • I look around this room
    And feel the pool of tender years
    Before we knew enough
    To be afraid of all our fears

    Baby there was no corner
    We couldn't fight our way out of
    And every thought of leaving
    Left us leaning on this love
    We had it all you know
    Before you started letting go

    If you can walk away tonight
    Give it up for good
    Throw it all away like we
    swore we never wood
    If you can tear down everything we built
    Deny everything we felt
    I guess there's a lot I misunderstood

    If you can leave here tonight
    Baby maybe you should

    Baby I just keep on seeing
    All that moonlight shining down
    The way our love could light up
    This little Alabama town

    So I keep holding on to hope
    Still finding reasons to believe
    Cause all I ever got from you
    Was always just enough for me
    But if it's not for you
    Do what you gotta do

    If you can walk away tonight
    Give it up for good
    Throw it all away like we
    swore we never wood
    If you can tear down everything we built
    Deny everything we felt
    I guess there is a lot I misunderstood

    If you can leave here tonight
    Baby maybe you should

    If you can leave here tonight
    Baby maybe you should Writer/s: GARY NICHOLSON, MICHAEL REID, TAYLOR HICKS
