Staring at you taking off your makeup
Wondering why you even put it on
I know you think you do, but baby, you don't need it
Wish that you could see what I see when it's gone

Chorus:
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova

Baby blue eyes and your head on my shoulder
Wait, baby don't move, right there it is
A T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold but we gave love a chance
Yeah To me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset, riverbank, first time feeling

Yeah smile and shake your head as if you don't believe me
I'll just sit right here and let you take me back
I'm on that gravel road, look at me
On my way to pick you up you're standing on the front porch
Looking just like that remember that

Chorus:
I see a dust trail following an old red Nova
Baby blue eyes and your head on my shoulder
Wait, baby don't move, right there it is
A T-shirt hanging off a dogwood branch
That river was cold but we gave love a chance
Yeah To me
You don't look a day over fast cars and freedom
That sunset, riverbank, first time feeling

    This song reminds me of fast cars, like cudas, challengers, mustangs, camaros, chevy trucks. It reminds me that there is history in american classic muscle cars. As with time any history fades away. Reminds me that history is who and what makes up for who we are today. We cannot change for anyone or anything unless we are open and willing to accept things for who we are. We must forgive those that have hurt us and move forward. Let go and live since, no one can make things happen for you unless you do it yourself. Back when life was simple and money wasn't a driving force, or who will win, just being accepted for who i am and not care what anyone thinks about me. I am fine with who i am becoming, and will learn each step will just make me stronger and strive to be all that i know i can inside

    It reminds me of the years when i was free from any evil, free to believe what i felt. It reminds me of when i knew who i was, how i can achieve anything, possibilities are endless if you have a positive outlook. Reminds me that god is in our lives everyday, he sees the beauty in everyone of us, we just need to accept things that we are given. There is no need to make what he created us superficial
