They’d say it needs a pretty boy in lights
With a voice that flows like gold
To sing this song he didn’t write
For the you that nobody knows
A haunting string arrangement would add
A Nashville finish so sweet so fine
Tacked on by strangers who never had
A lonely heart like yours and mine

This simple song from me to you
That no one else will understand
Is from my heart you’ve touched anew
My loving you makes me more a man

Maybe some fancy video team
Could re-script the song around
The model agent would send a dream
She has the look the curves no sound
And then that fake lip sync scene
Could be shot on location too
From the mountain top in Fiji green
While I’m still stuck here loving you

You’re my country song
That I will never give away
In my heart you’re never gone
You’re every note that I play

The drum machine could spice it up some
To a song a dance hall plays
Speed it up ‘til they all go dumb
Commercialize it a hundred ways
The pretty faces with teeth so bright
And the flawless three part harmony
Can’t take this song from me tonight
Don’t mean as much as you to me

Before I bury my song in stone
Or watch the epitaph arise
I reach out and feel you on my soul
It comforts me to know you realize
