John Hiatt – Hangin' Around Here lyrics

If I could go back to love's first blush

Oh my lordy it would be a big rush

But I know you can't go back

You gotta keep moving that's a natural fact

So here we are still in love

I swear to you honey by the stars above

It's an old man's dreams that a young man fears

Well I learned that honey just hangin' round here

I'm proud of my mistakes

And all the love and the trouble that I ever did make

I never mean to hurt no one

And when I did it wasn't any fun

But all the roads lead me straight to you

It's all good every little thing that you do

It gets me going just to have you near

Well I learned that honey just hangin' around here

Round here a man has to stand up tall

Round here a man has gotta learn to crawl

Got to go to the bottom to see the top

It's a one way ticket and it never does stop

If I could go back I'd be alone

Cause there's nothing back there just dust and bones

I guess it's you and me

Stumbling to the twenty-first century

My mind's half gone but I don't care

Ain't thinking ahead I'm just getting there

And if you want you can help me steer

Well I learned that honey just hangin' round here

Well I learned that baby just hangin' round here

Well I learned that honey just hangin' round here
