Back to Every Time I Hear Your Name lyrics

Every Time I Hear Your Name

Finally got over that song of ours stopped chasin' little red sports cars
To check the license plates an' back wood drivin' by your place
Back makin' the rounds at our old haunts Honky Tonks, restaurants
An' seein' some of our old friends, it feels good to dance again

An' I can finally smell your perfume
An' not look around the room for you
An' I can walk right by your picture
In a frame an' not feel a thing

But when I hear your name
I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky
An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes
An' nothings changed, an' we're still same
An' I get lost in the innocence of a first kiss
An' I'm hangin' on to every word rollin' off your lips
An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place
Every time I hear your name

Got someone special in my life
Everyone thinks she'd make a great wife
Dad says "He thinks she's the one"
Reminds him of Mom when she was young

But it's way too soon to be talkin 'bout rings
Don't wanna rush into anything
She's getting over someone too
Kinda like me an' you

An' she talks about him every once in a while
An' I just nod my head an' smile
'Cause I know exactly what she's goin' through
Yeah, I've been there too

An' when the conversation turns to you,
I get caught and you were the only one for me
Kinda thought, an' your face is all that I see
I know I can't go back when I still go back
An' there we are, a point down by the riverside
An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time
An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place
Every time I hear your name

So I'm thinkin' 'bout the words I left unsaid
(Every time I hear your name)
Stop tryin' the change the things I can't change
(Every time I hear your name)
In my heart I know you're gone, but in my head

I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky
An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes
That's all it takes, an' I'm in that place
An' there we are, a point down by the riverside
An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time
An' I can't explain, but I'm in that place

Every time I hear your name
Every time I hear your name
(Every time I hear your name)
(Every time I hear your name)
Every time I hear your name
