Sometimes I get captured by the way a song sounds
It takes me inside and lifts me up off the ground
It can make you feel love like you've never felt before
Or it can make you cry and want to hide behind doors

For a song is more powerful that most people think
Go ahead and sit by the jukebox
And order up another drink

Chorus:
And try not to listen
Try not to hear the words
For that song that's always haunted you
Is always gonna be heard
I hope you listen to my songs
I hope you listen to what I say
This song's my life and that's the reason
Oh the reason I was made

Sometimes I put some grit into it and sing it loud as I can
And I scream and yell at the crowd hoping that they understand
And sometimes they yell back and it's as crazy as it can be
And I think to myself, what a hell of a life I lead

For a song is more powerful that most people think
Go ahead and sit by the jukebox
And order up another drink

Repeat Chorus

Sometimes it's real slow and tender as it can be
And I look into your eyes and I wish you could see what I see
You may not want to listen, you may not like my style
But I promise you by the end of the night, there's something you're gonna realize

That a song is more powerful that most people think
Go ahead and sit by the jukebox
And order up another drink
