[1st Verse]

We drove all night to get to Corpus Christi
My parents slept right through
They never missed me
We were far from sleepin'
When the truth began to creep in
That we weren't goin' home anytime soon

[2nd Verse]

The mornin' light sure took us by surprise
We grabbed our clothes
Watched a beautiful sunrise
We were one together
And we must have talked forever
And it was then and there I realized that

[Chorus]

(And) I don't want to wait even one more night
It's hard to slow it down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled
We're holdin' on tight (holdin' on tight)
(We're) travelin' at twice the speed of life
(Yea, yea, yeah yeah)

[3rd Verse]

We worked our way through college waitin' tables
Bought a little white house with a picket fence and cable
I asked if he was ready
To become a Mom and Daddy
And then I found my answer in his eyes
And he said...

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]

Now, our oldest girl is almost grown
She's got a boyfriend of her own
I heard her sneakin' out with him last night
And if she's anything like me
She's desperate to be wild and free
We know now it's just a matter of time
'Til she says...

[Chorus Out]
