Making It Up As I Go Along

Making It Up As I Go Along

Radney Foster

There are nights I've owned this town
Most nights it owns me
Play my guitar 'til it draws blood
and it still won't let me be

People think you know what you're talking about
All because you wrote some song
I ain't no smarter than the rest of these clowns
I'm just making it up as I go along

I had dreams at 21
I traded for a car
The car is gone and the dreams are, too
But I've still got your heart

You always saw right through the smoke and mirrors
Nothing fooled you for long
You know the wizard's just a man behind the curtain shifting gears
Still making it up as I go along.

I've worn this mask before 'til I don't know who I am
I love the cards life's dealt me
But I sure don't know how to play out my hand

There are nights I've owned your love
Most nights it owns me
There are nights I've tried to escape it
And it still won't let me be

People think you know what true love's about
All because you wrote some song
There's more to love than just writing it down
We'll make it all up as we go along
