Come With Me

I stood in the drive
Next to my Plymouth Sundance   †
That day in the mountains † †
Asked you to take a chance † †
Been doin' this so long † †  
There's nothin' left here † †  
Come on baby take my hand † †  
Disregard the fear † †  
† †  
I said † †  
† †  
What's keepin' you here † †
What's keepin' us down † †
What's comin' around the corner now † †
What's stoppin' us from leavin' this town
Why don't you wanna come with me † †
† †  
I packed my boxes † †
Drove alone, left you there † †
I-95, headin' south  
Can't believe you didn't care † †
Five years over † †  
We had our fun † †  
The bottom of a bottle † †  
Took all my love † †  
 
What's keepin' you here † †
What's keepin' us down † †
What's comin' around the corner now † †
What's stoppin' us from leavin' this town
Why don't you wanna come with me †  
† †
It was the middle of the night †  
When I finally stopped drivin'†  
Hurricane beating down † †
Couldn't hide the tears or cryin' † †
You never even called me † †
Just let me go † †
All of our hopes and dreams † †
Gone out the window  
† †
What kept you there † †
What kept you down † †
What's come around your corner now † †
What stopped you from leavin' that town Why didn't you wanna come with me

Come with me, oh come with me

Why didn't you wanna come with me
