Lady Antebellum - Downtown lyrics

American country pop group Lady Antebellum release the track "Downtown" as the first single from their fourth studio album due in 2013 via Capitol Nashville! "Downtown" sees Hillary, Charles and Dave depart from their most recent Hot AC-ish sound to focus full time on country music. "Downtown" is a fresh and uptempo tune, with a pop veil, in which frontwoman Hillary sings about a troubled relationship in which her lover won't take her anymore to the city's downtown. Is something going on there?.


Well, all the parties on the streets are talking, store front mannequins sleeping in lights.
We used to smoke while we were jaywalking like it was your birthday every other saturday night.
Knew The bands so we never payed our cover.
Wrote our names on the bathroom tiles.
We never dressed to impress all the others,
They would let us in on a laid back kind of style.
But Boy you know it's been a while.

I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
I'm only counting on your cancellation,
When I should be countin on you at my door.
Did you forget about how we went around,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
Ohhhhhhhh anymore.

I got some platforms sitting in the corner.
They wanna stroll on a city sidewalk.
I got a dress that'll show a little uhhh uh but you ain't getting uhh ohh if you don't come pick me up (damn),
Show me off (wow), you might be tired but I'm not!


And I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
I'm only counting on your cancellation,
When I should be countin on you at my door.
Did you forget about how we went around,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.

I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
I'm only counting on your cancellation, when I should be countin on you at my door.
Did you forget about how we went around,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
Ohhh anymore. Yeaaaaah don't know why you don't take me downtown,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
I just don't get it
