George Strait – Living For The Night

Ik kwam er gisteravond achter dat er nog niks van George Strait (Poteet, Texas) op US Country Music staat en dat kan natuurlijk niet. Dit is één van de eerste songs die ik hoorde van George: het wonderschone Living For The Night van het album Twang uit 2009.

Songtekst:

Verse 1
Everyday’s a lifetime without you
Hard to get through, since you’ve gone
So I do the only thing I know how to,
to get by
I’m living for the night

Verse 2
I’ve drawn all the curtains in this old house
To keep the sun out, off of my face
Friends stop by to check-in ‘cause I’ve checked out
I tell them I’m fine,
I’m just living for the night

Refrain
Daylight can’t hide the tears I cry
the pain that came with your goodbye
The memories that keep me out of sight
Every night I venture out
into those neon arms that hold me tight
I’m living for the night

Verse 3
I’m a whole lot easier to talk to,
when I’ve had a few and settled down
Whiskey kills the man you’ve turned me into
And I come alive
I’m living for the night

Refrain
Daylight can’t hide the tears I cry
the pain that came with your goodbye
The memories that keep me out of sight
Every night I venture out
into those neon arms that hold me tight
I’m living for the night
I’m living for the night

Everyday is a lifetime without you
