As i drive from your pearly gates i realize that i just can't stay all those mountains they kept you locked inside and hid the truth from my slighted eyes i came to you with a half-open heart dreams upon my back illusions of a brand-new start nashville can't i carry the load is it my fault i can't reap what i sow? nashville did you give me half a chance with your southern style and your hidden dance? all those voices they whisper through my walls they talk of falling fast they say i'm losing it all they say i'm running blind to a love of my own but i'll be walking proud I'm saving what i still own i fell on my knees to kiss your land but you are so far down i can't even see to stand nashville you forgot the human race you see with half a mind what colors hide the face nashville i'd like to know your fate i'd like to stay awhile but i've seen your lowered state today i'm leaving but i've got all these debts to pay we all owe our dues i'll pay in some other place i never ask that you pay me back we all arrive
With more i left with less than i had your town is made for people passing through a last chance for cause well i thought i knew nashville tell me what you gonna do with your southern style it'll never pull you through nashville i can't place no blame but if you forget my face i'll never call your name again i fell on my knees to kiss your land but you are so far down i can't even see to stand nashville you forgot the human race you see with half a mind what colors hide the face nashville i'd like to know your fate i'd like to stay awhile but i've seen your lowered state today i'm running away
