Lyrics

Ol' Car

Written By: Josh Jennings


Why don’t you just sell that old car
It’s not going to make it very far
You never drive it anyways

It’s been sitting in the garage for years
Your still telling all your friends
Your going to fix it up oneday

But then how would I get around
Stumble down the road till I’ve found
Another gall just as sweet on me

Go on and open that side door
You don’t have to worry anymore
Just turn on the radio and sing

Oh I’m driving, further then I’ve, ever drove away
Oh I’m driving, further then I’ve, ever drove away

It got a dent when we first mment
I remember I was about half lit
We drove around through the fields

You said this reminds me of my home
Where we use to stay up all night long
Pretend that nothing else was real

Oh I’m driving, further then I’ve, ever drove away
Oh I’m driving, further then I’ve, ever drove away

I guess I grew up way to fast
Seems nothing good will ever last
But maybe that’s just how it feels

So lets please not sell this car
It’s got a place inside my heart
Next to you and the wheel

Oh I’m driving, further then I’ve, ever drove away
Oh I’m driving, further then I’ve, ever drove away

Darling Please

Written By: Josh Jennings

As I lay down in my bed, I started calling your name again
But you never answer, you weren’t asleep, you were gone, you decided to leave me
Found another man to hold your hand, someone who was better than the man that I am
After seven years shed not a tear, said it’s was better if you weren’t here
But I’m saying darling please
Yes darling please, do you need a friend

I said so long hope you have fun, I’ll never forget the times when we were young
It seems you’ve grown away from the good old days, and all we have let now is all we ever made
From the act of love created our son, now he’ll grow up never knowing what we’ve done
Because I’m have the man that I once was, and all I gave you was never enough
But I’m saying darling please
Yes darling please, do you need a friend
Do you need a friend,Do you need a friend like me

And that forgotten seed from the tree of life, that we never sown never shown the light
Could have been the key the solay sky, the mystery the ocean tides
Hell the missing link in the dark of night, that we never seen because we where to dam blind
I’m saying darling please could you turn back time, she said I was never ment to be so kind
But I’m saying darling please
Yes darling please, do you need a friend
Do you need a friend,
Do you need a friend like me
