lyrics

I’m glad that you’re with me on this drive
The stories you’re telling me, how they keep me occupied
I could be alone tonight, lost underneath the moon
Just one more thing I love about you

What do I say, how can my heart convey
That I wouldn’t be the same without

All the things you don’t have to do for me
And I believe you’re long overdue baby
All the things I want to do to you right now
So baby let’s go, with the flow, hit the road,
Oh love I just want to show you what you mean to me
And thank you
For all the things you don’t have to do

Now the light’s shining on me and you’re there in the front row
It doesn’t matter too much to you that it’s a private bedroom show
I know where ever I go I’ll find you smiling back up at me
Our eyes will lock, I’ll sing with you and
And you’ll sing with me

What do I say, how can my heart convey
That I wouldn’t be the same without

All the things you don’t have to do for me
And I believe you’re long overdue baby
All the things I want to do to you right now
So baby let’s go, with the flow, hit the road,
Oh love I just want to show you what you mean to me
And thank you
For all the things you don’t have to do

I’ve tried to recall what life was like before you came
But the memory has been erased
And I hope you know after all that we’ve been through
I’ll love you forever, it’s true I’m gonna treasure you

All the things you don’t have to do for me
And I believe you’re long overdue baby
All the things I want to do to you right now
So baby let’s go, with the flow, hit the road,
Oh love I just want to show you what you mean to me
And thank you
For all the things you don’t have to do
