shifting in my seat again
I sit down and you walked in
I don't know if I can take it anymore
I stood up and gave you a hug
you made this heart fall in love
then I headed straight for the door
wish I could have taken you girl

it's gonna take years to forget you
it's only been days since I kissed you
i'm just looking for the simple side of things
....i only want you here with me

I got home and pulled in the drive
thought about how you changed my life
and all the goods way that you made me feel
I guess I am gonna have to cut it loose
cause it's feeling like a tightening noose
and these wounds are hard enough to heal
wish I had you right here

I know right now things look bad
but your the greatest treasure I ever had
I know now your heart is true
your the greatest love that I ever knew

Subject is something most have experienced; getting over someone breaking up with us. And I really liked the hook - that's how we all feel at that point. I really liked the first verse - setting up the scenario.

Great tune, I love the drums/ percussion. Nice voice, cool vibe, great driving feel.
