Lasso

Album: The Band Perry (2010)
  • When I first laid eyes on you
    Well, the night just felt so odd
    You looked at me and the stars lined up
    So I thought I'd heard from God
    And I gave him my best shot

    Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
    I tried to hold on to you
    Took a ride on a tilt-a-whirl that sits on top of the world
    Man, I thought I could show you
    I've always been afraid of flying
    But you can't blame a girl for trying

    Felt like a pearl when I was holding your hand
    So precious I forgot
    You could have any girl but I only wanted one man
    And you were everything I'm not
    Still I gave it my best shot

    Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
    I tried to hold on to you
    Took a turn on a high trapeze swinging over the deep
    I thought I could show you
    I've always been afraid of flying
    But you can't blame a girl for trying

    Like a vine bends a tree to the ground
    I won't hold you down
    I tried to climb just as high
    But I found all the clouds touch the ground
    In this small town

    Took a ride on a high trapeze swinging over the deep
    I thought I could show you
    That I've always been afraid of flying
    But you can't blame a girl for trying
    No, you can't blame a girl, hey Writer/s: PERRY'S, AARON HENNINGSEN, BRIAN HENNINGSEN, CLARA HENNINGSEN, KIMBERLY PERRY, NEIL PERRY, REID PERRY
