Don't Look Away by Micheal Lee Collins

I stood up straight and acted okay,
but wild horses runaway.
I'm running from the sun
for a place to set my guns.
This holster's made of open space.

So Don't you look away,
I want you to see this coming
from miles away.
Don't you look away,
I want you to see this coming
from outer space.
Don't you look away

Like the astronauts do,
Maybe get one shot at the moon
And spend their life on the wait
So if the chance comes
Put me in the barrel of a gun
Life's a chance we all take

Prayed on coins i threw in a wishing well
I beg ya don't stop you're all that I've got now!
Blood and pride is all i gotta sell
But the sun has shined for days

like the energy. nice vocal! thank you for leaving no doubt what the hell the title/hook is...damn if i haven't heard NOT enough of that tonight...nice bridge too, nice lead guitar work too.

Excellent everything.

Very good song. Find great Americana feel. Vocalist is great.
