Type of Girl

 

Give me a minute

Let me soak it all in

Let me think about burning the bridges I’m still crossing

Liquor on your breath making me feel hypnotized

Give me a chance to open up my eyes wide

 

I’m not the type of girl to let it all go

For a guy who doesn’t even know her

Deepest darkest fears and her fantasies 

And even if I did, 

I’m still not that type of girl

 

Let’s talk this over but you’re half asleep

You’re not listening to anything about my dream

Maybe I’m stupid to think that you’re the one

When all the signs are telling me to get up and run

 

Chorus

I’m not the type of girl to let it all go

For a guy who doesn’t even know her

Deepest darkest fears and her fantasies 

And even if I did, 

 

I’m not the type of girl to let it all go

For a guy who doesn’t even know her

Deepest darkest fears and her fantasies 

And even if I did, 

Not that type of girl 

Not that type of girl 

Not that type of girl

Pontiac Vibe

 

I was driving home after a long day

Beads of light running down my windshield from the rain

Getting lost in my thoughts, I was far away

 

Eagles play low on the radio

I feel like calling every person that I’ve ever known

Mind running over things I can’t control

 

Sitting at a green light with the doors open

A red Pontiac vibe from Michigan

Blue lights shining through the night

White sheet over the driver’s side

Where were you going

Does your family know

Why you’re not taking their phone calls

Were you going to see your girlfriend

Or say goodnight to your children

Pontiac Vibe

On your last night

Pontiac Vibe

 

I said a little prayer and went on my way

I still think of you but I never saw your face

But when I close my eyes the scene won’t fade

 

Chorus

 

Did you have flowers in your front seat

Did you stand someone up you were gonna meet

Did you tell them when you were about to leave

 Chorus

Trailer Park Cemetery

 

Between the tall oaks 

And a few southern pines 

Down a dirt road 

Past the rusty welcome sign 

It don’t look like much 

Just a group of double wides

 

They all have porches 

Kids are playing in the streets 

Say good morning

To every person that you see

That’s the way it is 

And I wouldn’t change a thing 

When I die 

Lay me in a plot alongside

An above-ground pool

And a bright neon light

It’ll keep the ghosts away at night 

And pretend not to know

The youth hangout is my stone

Littered beer cans

Will keep me feeling less alone

Even if it’s just my name they read while they’re getting stoned 

So when the time comes

I wanna be buried

In a trailer park cemetery 

 

I don’t want peace and quiet 

It’s overrated anyway 

I’ll take loud voices 

Over silence any day

I don’t ask for much

Just wanna pick where my body lays

 

When I die 

Lay me in a plot alongside

An above-ground pool

And a bright neon light

It’ll keep the ghosts away at night 

And pretend not to know

The youth hangout is my stone

Littered beer cans

Will keep me feeling less alone

Even if it’s just my name they read while they’re getting stoned 

When I die 

Lay me in a plot alongside

An above-ground pool

And a bright neon light

It’ll keep the ghosts away at night 

And pretend not to know

The youth hangout is my stone

Littered beer cans

Will keep me feeling less alone

Even if it’s just my name they read while they’re getting stoned 

So when the time comes

I wanna be buried

In a trailer park cemetery 

Funeral

 

I’ve been working all damn day

Praying that I won’t see your face

In strangers that pass by me

And in thoughts that won’t seem to fade

 

I can’t seem to let this go

It’s branded on my soul

Branded on my soul

As grass starts to grow

On turned soil

On turned soil

 

I’m sorry I didn’t make it home

I’m sorry I didn’t make it home

I’m sorry I didn’t make it home 

To your funeral

 

I walk past your house

Whenever I am back in town

But I can’t face your parents

When did I become such a coward

 

I hope this does you justice

I can’t find the words

I can’t find the words

As I grow older

Your memory won’t get colder

It won’t get colder

 

Chorus

Said you wouldn’t touch that stuff again

You were always my best friend, I

Chorus
