Jake Owen – Settin' The World On Fire lyrics

Well that big red sun was sinking slow
That rising hat a haunting glow
I could see those heat waves rising off the ground

We were sitting on go at that old stop sign
Headlights shining on the county line
It was do or die, had to get out of that town
Well honey you said run
We were so young

Trying to set the world on fire
Turn the key and spark the wire
Chasing down a feeling, running on desire
The future was an open road,
Gone in a cloud of smoke
Leaving a trail of flames behind those tires
Just you and me girl, setting the world on fire
Yeah we were setting the world on fire

We were blazing down the road like Kerouac
No time to stop and cover our tracks
We were too damn hot for any one town to hold
Yeah we burned through a few good years
Then you started looking back in that rear view mirror
Right outside of Reno the trail got cold
You said you'd had enough, of this rambling love

Trying to set the world on fire
Turn the key and spark the wire
Chasing down a feeling, running on desire
The future was an open road,
Gone in a cloud of smoke
Leaving a trail of flames behind those tires
For a while there girl we were setting the world on fire

Pulling out a Lucky Strike, bout to head west
Riding off into God's sunset
It's times like this I always think of you
But honey you know me, I'll always be

Trying to set the world on fire
Turn the key and spark the wire
Chasing down a feeling, running on desire
The future is an open road,
Gone in a cloud of smoke
Leaving a trail of flames behind these tires
See I'm out here girl, setting the world on fire
I'm setting the world on fire
Yeah I'm setting the world on fire
