Lasso (The Band Perry)

When I first laid eyes on you Well, the night just felt so odd You looked at me and the stars lined up So I thought I'd heard from God And I gave him my best shot Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado I tried to hold on to you Took a ride on a tilt-a-whirl that sits on top of the world Man, I thought I could show you I've always been afraid of flying But you can't blame a girl for trying Felt like a pearl when I was holding your hand So precious I forgot You could have any girl but I only wanted one man And you were everything I'm not Still I gave it my best shot Loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado I tried to hold on to you Took a turn on a high trapeze swinging over the deep I thought I could show you I've always been afraid of flying But you can't blame a girl for trying Like a vine bends a tree to the ground I won't hold you down I tried to climb just as high But I found all the clouds touch the ground In this small town Took a ride on a high trapeze swinging over the deep I thought I could show you That I've always been afraid of flying But you can't blame a girl for trying No, you can't blame a girl
