Got a ticket in my hand and one foot out the door
It's sad to see how far apart we've come
If we could just forget takin' sides in our little wars
And remember back to where we started from
It's not for you not for me or anyone we're tryin' to please
But we're two young lovers once had it all
Who carved their names in a crooked heart on a love tree way back when
If not for you if not for me then for them
[ ac.guitar - steel ]
Under a sky full of stars two people found love live or die they swore it'd never end
Now through these tears in our eyes crying out to us beggin' for a chance to try again
It's not for you not for me...
[ steel ]
Who carved their names in a crooked heart on a love tree way back when
If not for you if not for me then for them not for me then for them
