Colder Weather

Charted: 29
  • She'd trade Colorado if he'd take her with him
    Closes the door before the winter lets the cold in,
    And wonders if her love is strong enough to make him stay
    She's answered by the tail lights
    Shining through the window pane

    He said I wanna see you again
    But I'm stuck in colder weather
    Maybe tomorrow will be better
    Can I call you then
    She said you're ramblin' man
    You ain't ever gonna change
    You gotta gypsy soul to blame
    And you were born for leavin'

    At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln,
    The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin',
    And in the waitress' eyes he sees the same 'ol light shinin'
    He thinks of Colorado
    And the girl he left behind

    He said I wanna see you again
    But I'm stuck in colder weather
    Maybe tomorrow will be better
    Can I call you then
    She said you're ramblin' man
    You ain't ever gonna change
    You gotta gypsy soul to blame
    And you were born for leavin'

    Born for leavin'

    Well it's a winding road
    When your in the lost and found
    You're a lover I'm a runner
    We go 'round 'n 'round
    And I love you but I leave you
    I don't want you but I need you
    You know it's you who calls me back here

    Oh I wanna see you again
    But I'm stuck in colder weather
    Maybe tomorrow will be better
    Can I call you then
    'Cause I'm a ramblin' man
    I ain't ever gonna change
    I gotta gypsy soul
    And I was born for leavin' (born for leavin')

    When I close my eyes I see you
    No matter where I am
    I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines
    I'm with your ghost again
    It's a shame about the weather
    But I know soon we'll be together
    And I can't wait 'til then
    I can't wait 'til then Writer/s: Coy Bowles, Levi Lowrey, Wyatt Durrette, Zachary Brown
