Wanted to be where you were
New to the town
This little country girl packed her bags
She up and went
So she could be where her heart lived
She ain't know no better
Thought that it would last forever
But she ended up getting hurt
Regretted leaving home
Wished that she had known
As soon as she got there
He would be long gone
But she said
It's too late to turn back
No, I don't wanna go home now

But this city love moves way too fast for me
So baby can you slow it down
Please pump the brakes, don't speed
I've got miles and miles of love
Ain't no need to try to rush
We gon' get there just the same
Why don't we map out the way?
Living in this city love, this city love
City love's too fast for the country
Ohhh la la la la la la
It's too fast for the country
Ohhh la la la la la la

Convinced herself not to cry
It's not her fault they don't see eye to eye
She can't turn back 'cause they all think
She should've stayed home from the beginning
She's gonna prove em wrong
Even if it takes her too long
To find herself a new love
Far away from home
Wished that she had known
The moment she got there
He would be long gone
But she said
It's too late to turn back
No, I don't wanna go home now

But this city love moves way too fast for me
So baby can you slow it down
Please pump the brakes, don't speed
I've got miles and miles of love
Ain't no need to try to rush
We gon' get there just the same
Why don't we map out the way?
Living in this city love, this city love
City love's too fast for the country

She didn't know what to do
She had nothing left to lose
She was lost, so confused
Out of her element, so heartbroken
Decided to let it go
Nowhere she could turn to, nowhere else to go
No way to pull through, nothing to hold to
Where else could she be?
What else could she do?
She said
It's too late to turn back
No, I don't wanna go home now

But this city love moves way too fast for me
So baby won't you slow it down
Please pump the brakes, don't speed
I've got miles and miles of love
Ain't no need to try to rush
We gon' get there just the same
Why don't we map out the way?
Living in this city love, this city love
City love's too fast for the country
Ohhh la la la la la la
It's too fast for the country
Ohhh la la la la la la

I've got miles and miles of love
Ain't no need to try or rush
We gon' get there just the same
Why don't we map out the way?
You ain't in the city, love
This city love
City love's too fast for the country
