There are things about you that make me wanna scream and shout
There are things about you that make me wanna lock you out
But there's a little thing that drives me wild
Something that happens every time you smile
I can't get over the lines around your eyes
Lines around your eyes everytime you smile
And the way you touch me darlin' just drives me wild
Sometimes I don't know what we're fightin' about
But that don't mean we can't work things out
Cause I love you darlin' and the lines around your eyes

SOLO

I put my car in gear and I headed down Highway 10
I was leavin' here, I was never comin' back again
I got about as far as the Texas line
I still couldn't get you off of my mind
Cause I can't get over the lines around your eyes
Lines around your eyes everytime you smile
And the way you touch me darlin' just drives me wild
Sometimes I don't know what we're fightin' about
But that don't mean we can't work things out
Cause I love you darlin' and the lines around your eyes

From Lucinda Williams "Sweet Old World"
Chameleon Records 1992
Lucy Jones Music(BMI)
