It's been a long time since I came around
Been along time, but I'm back in town
And this time I'm not leavin' without you

You taste like whiskey when you kiss me, oh
I'd give anything again to be your baby doll
This time I'm not leavin' without you

You said "sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we
Made love the first time
And you said to me

There's somethin', somethin' about this place
Somethin' 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Somethin', somethin' about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah somethin' about
Baby you and I"

It's been two years since I let you go,
I couldn't listen to a joke or rock 'n' roll
Muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart

On my birthday you sang me a heart of gold
With a guitar hummin' and no clothes
This time I'm not leavin' without you, oh, oh

"Sit back down where you belong
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we
Made love the first time and you said to me

There's somethin', somethin' about this place
Somethin' 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Somethin', somethin' about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah somethin' about
Baby you and I"

You and I
You, you and I
You, you and I
You, you and I
You and I
You, you and I
Oh yeah, I'd rather die
Without you and I

Come on!
Put your drinks up!

We've got a whole lot of money but we still pay rent
Cause you can't buy a house in heaven
There's only three men that imma serve my whole life
It's my daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ

There's somethin', somethin' about the chase, Six whole years
New York home born to roll you down
So why my lipstick are all over your face
Somethin' somethin' about just knowin' when it's right
So put your drinks up for Nebraska, for Nebraska, Nebraska I love ya!

You and I
You, you and I
Baby, I'd rather die
Without you and I

You and I
You, you and I
Nebraska, I'd rather die
Without you and I

It's been a long time since I came around
Been a long time but I'm back in town
And this time I'm not leavin' without you

    I think this is about how she knew a guy and he was perfect for her then she left and now she's back because she feels like she needs him again

    I think this song is about getting back together with an ex-boyfriend and reliving all the old times they had, but that she isn't going to give up this time on him and will succeed in getting him back.

    I think her meaning is that she is in love with this guy and she is remembering her life with him and she wants it back. That is what i think.

    I really like this song. I prefer the slower, laid back feel to this. It makes a big difference to her usual pop dancey songs. Cheers gaga!!!
