Jennifer Nettles – His Hands lyrics

I remember that day when he walked up to me
Wrote my number down, put it in the pocket of his bluejeans
And I fell like a feather. Yeah, just like that, we were together
He was my perfect gentleman, sweet like, real sweet

And his hands felt like thunder on my skin
His breath hot, oh, how could I forget
That his eyes looked right through me and that was it
Silence was the only sound then
And my heart pounding

Told me things would be different leaving church that Sunday
But the only change coming was the quarters in the ashtray
And I should have known better when the last three times he swore
That he would never lay another finger on me but the truth's on my face

And his hands felt like thunder on my skin
His breath hot, oh, how could I forget
That his eyes looked right through me and that was it
Silence was the only sound then
And my heart pounding

Oh I thought that he was all I ever wanted
Should have come with a warning
And just like you, I've been there too
Oh, I've got bag and I've got a plan
Girl, you better get out while you can, while you can, while you can

Cause his hands felt like thunder on my skin
His breath hot, oh, how could I forget
That his eyes looked right through me and that was it
Silence was the only sound then
Oh, silence was the only sound then
Silence was the only sound then
And my heart heart pounding
