First Date
by Highland Ramblers

well ive been down this long hard road
and nothing has lighten the load
but that all changed the day i met you

im swept up in the the thought of you
now my days are now far from blue
can i just convince you that all this is true

so wont you stay here
and spend the night
dont care what you say
and i will stand by you till my dying day

ive been bumming around this town
up through the middle and all around
and you just gave me a different point of view

i think you do feel the same
someday i hope we share a name
but slow me down if im moving too fast for you

i think so far its gone real well
cant read you yet but what the hell
just gimme a sign and i wont go away

im not the sharpest tool in the shed
but i think i understand what you said
and if you change your mind then i will make your day


released May 10, 2013
