American Aquarium – Nothing To Lose lyrics
[Verse 1]
She had on her mama's dress
It was quilted, white, and freshly pressed
She looked like the Queen of Appalachia
We threw everything we had
In the back of my daddy’s Cadillac
And dared the whole world to catch us

Got a full tank of gas and a bottle of booze
A pocket full of cash, and nothin' to lose

[Verse 2]
As we pulled out of her daddy's place
A smile crept 'cross her face
She said, "Are we really gonna do this?"
That's when we both realized
We were leavin' all the bad behind
And we started shoutin' broken "Hallelujah!"s

Now come on, baby, take my hand
'Cause we're headin' on to the promised land

[Chorus]
So take it easy, babe
On this heart of mine
If we play our cards right, baby, we just might make it outta here alive

[Verse 3]
Well the car was black, a ’68
With a 429 fast enough to make
Them telephone poles look like fences
The motor howls around the clock
And the streetlights fight us every single block
From here all the way to Memphis

We're headin' out, anywhere but here
And everything we know is in the rearview mirror

[Verse 4]
Well the wind set her hair to dancin'
Occasionally giving glances
Of her face, all freckles and sunburn
With a smile you won't soon forget
To the way she lights her cigarettes
She's a modern-day Audrey Hepburn

Got her daddy's temper and her mama's eyes
The world ahead of us, and her by my side

[Chorus]
So take it easy, babe
On this heart of mine
If we play our cards right, baby, we just might make it outta here alive

[Verse 5]
There's a Red Collar song on the radio
I think it's used guitars
But I don't know, 'cause the speaker's busted
She locked her hand in mine
And her fingers traced a tattoo line
And she said "You're the only boy I've ever trusted"

Got a full tank of gas and a bottle of booze
A pocket full of cash, and nothin' to lose
