Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert We Were Us Lyrics
Rearview crosses
Railroad ties
Oh, Hail Marys
Friday nights
Heartbeat baby
Low-beam lights
God, I miss when you were mine

[Chorus:]
Back when that song was a song
I could sing along without thinkin bout you every time it came on
Every beat, every line, every word, every time
When a road was a road
I could roll on through without wishin that empty seat was you
Money was gas, dreams were dust
Love was fast and we were us

Shotgun sunset
A cool mint kiss
Backseat promise
Breaking it
Floorboard feeling
County lines
God, I miss when you were mine

[Repeat Chorus]

In a sleepy town, just jumping in
Far too young to know that summers end
We were us, we can’t go back
It’s what it is, but God I miss

[Repeat Chorus]

Every beat, every line, every word, every single time
I just close my eyes and you’re ridin shotgun
You and me, baby, on the run
I can feel your heartbeat, baby
