Lyrics

Stand Back and Smile

Written By: Zach McReynolds

I look to the stars and see your shinin' eyes,
they look so honest they don't need no disguise,
you take me for a ride and even let me drive,
sometimes they pull me over and thats no lie...

*but all I can do is stand back and smile*

They say your eyes are the windows to your soul,
Well I guess in your case they're the holes,
Shebang, you already did, a couple of times,
You know I tell the truth girl, cause I can't lie,

*but all I can do is stand back and smile*

C'mon Get Back To Me

Written By: Jarrod Turner

You're gone from my arms,
Hope you don't find any harm
Cause 1500 miles doesn't stop my love

I'm slowly dreaming
Wish you were leaving
on back to your way to return to my love

*Pre-Chorus*

I know you mean every word you say
But I can't keep missing you each and every day

*Chorus*

I'll be glad when you're in Missouri
Pretty baby now won't your hurry
and floor it
C'mon Get Back To Me
I Miss your saving grace
Feel like I'm dying alone in this place without you babe
C'mon Get Back To Me

So hop the plane babe
And I'll be on my way
To pick you up and see you smile again
You're not just my lover
You're so much more undercover and its even harder because your my best friend

*Pre-Chorus*

I know you mean every word you say
But I can't keep missing you each and every day

*Chorus*

I'll be glad when you're in Missouri
Pretty baby now won't your hurry
and floor it
C'mon Get Back To Me
I Miss your saving grace
Feel like I'm dying alone in this place without you babe
C'mon Get Back To Me
