Verse 1
I got buzzed the first time he kissed me
As strong as a shot of whiskey maybe more
But I never got drunk off his voice
The way I got wasted hearing yours
And you’re as Country as my cowboy boots
But he’s never been down a dirt road
He never smiled like I saw you smile
When you first said hello

Just an echo in my mind
A memory of what ain’t mine

Chorus
I never got over you
Yeah I never moved on
You probably thought I loved him
But you thought wrong
Cuz when he went away
I never missed him the way
I’ve missed you all along
I've lost every part of me to lose
I’m gone as you

Verse 2
Now she’s fillin' the gaps between your fingers
And her head is the weight on your chest
And I’m just a picture your memory burned
Along with this town that you left
His brown eyes never made me weak
The way yours could just lookin at mine
He never really thought I was funny
But your laugh’s still in the back of my mind

Just an echo in the night
A memory of your goodbye

Chorus
I never got over you
Yeah I never moved on
You probably thought I loved him
But you thought wrong
Cuz when he went away
I never missed him the way
I’ve missed you all along
I’ve lost every part of me to lose
I’m gone as you


Bridge
I was just lying to myself
Had to be crazy as hell
To ever think that I’d fall
The way I fell
Your midnight voice
An echo in the noise
Playing like a song
God let it be gone

Chorus
I never got over you
Yeah I never moved on
You probably thought I loved him
But you thought wrong
Cuz when he went away
I never missed him the way
I’ve missed you all along
I’ve lost every part of me to lose
I’m gone as you

I never got drunk off his voice
The way I got wasted hearing yours

Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.

This is something I would expect to hear on the radio. I totally LOVE it.  It flows perfectly and sounds like something I would hear a famous country singer singing.  It has emotion in it too. This deserves more than five stars :)
