You Don't Own The Road

Album: Blood Pressures (2011)
  • You don't own the road boy
    Better kick up a storm
    You don't own the big city lights
    Better cop out your own

    You don't own the green pines,
    The blue sky, or the smoke
    You don't own the dust in your
    Big brown eyes when you keep them closed

    Yeah, steal them back for me love
    Oh yeah, steal them back for me love, oh yeah

    You don't own the road boy
    And neither do I
    You don't own the big city lights
    That make my eyes cry

    You don't own the green pines
    So be careful where you lean
    And when you're lost under the blue sky
    Look down and you'll find me

    Yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
    Oh yeah steal it back for me love, oh yeah

    Come on over
    If that's the way you feel
    When you're lonesome steal it
    Back when you're lonely
    Back when you're lonely, back
    When you're lonely, back

    You don't own the sadness son
    See the tide just comes in
    Guilt is played on the violin
    By those who never cared to sing

    Yeah, steal it back for me love
    Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
    Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
    Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
    Back for me love
    Back for me love Writer/s: ALISON MOSSHART, JAMES HINCE
