Live through the song you write, or even just listen to...nothing like adding a soundtrack to this movie we call life.


I never owned a muscle car
Didn't have the wallet for it
Worked my skeleton bone to bone
Even still, could not afford it
Got a picture though, in my mind
With a 302, and man she flies

Maybe I'd ride those wheels instead of this hurt
I drive 4 cylinders cause I had to have her
Me, myself , and I should've come first
I lost touch with my pride cause I had to have her
I had to have her, Had to have her,
Oh yeah!

Clothes, and shoes, and credit cards
So much for that lover's bliss
Debt so high for a bed so hard
A rock group was my only kiss
Two story house with a backyard fence
added to unseen expense

Now I'm forced to relearn how to flirt
An old dog learning new tricks cause I had to have her
Could've partied all around the world
Instead I stayed at home cause I had to have her
I had to have her, had to have her
Oh no...

Not saying there weren't good times, real smiles, and laughs that carried on
Don't believe there wasn't love, or that it's forever gone
We all change, rearrange, exchange the roads we choose to walk upon
Problem is that differences are hard to swallow, which made it hard to talk on, I get it- it's all my fault.

So much that engine speed
I'm searching for the perfect groove
I'll find dreams that eluded me
Always believed it was in the right moves
So much for the blessed union
and no desired, friendly, reunion

There's always one who claims to be more burned
I'm a gigolo without a hotrod who had to have her
Adventure to me was staying home from work
but i learned not to do that cause I had to have her
I had to have her, i had to have her
Had to have her, you know I did
Had to have her, you know I did
I had to have her
