Just Like It Was Texas

Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Scarlet Keys

I’ve handled the road of my life with great caution
Afraid to watch the speedometer rise
And I thought that love should be smooth as a highway
True as a blue summer sky

With mile after mile of your wide open smile
From Amarillo to San Padre Isle

Your drove cross my heart…Just like it was Texas
Wide-eyed and restless
I let you in
And I’ve got the smile
To prove you were speeding
Tire tracks leading to the border and back

Our love like the wind danced a wicked wild two-step
As stars do-see-doed way up in the sky
You raced my heart way over the limit
Til I felt it would burst like a fireflies’ light

With mile after mile of your wide open smile
I’ve never felt so alive

Your drove cross my heart…
Just like it was Texas
Wide-eyed and restless
I let you in
And I’ve got the marks
To prove you were speeding
Tire tracks leading to the border and back

Your love’s taken me places that I’ve never been
From Houston to heaven to heartache
And even though you left me as fast as you found me
I’d do it all again
Just to say

Your drove cross my heart…
Just like it was Texas
Wide-eyed and restless
You blew into town
And I’m keeping the marks
To prove you were speeding
Tire tracks leading to the border and back
