lyrics

What is it that makes us listen to the things that we hear

What makes some notes glisten when they crawl inside your ear

I gotta straighten out these feelings twisted up inside

Is it wrong to fall in love with a girl just cuz she loves the way the banjo rides

She tells me that music is her grace and Lord

She tells me that she goes to church when she steps out on that dance floor

Now she's got me prayin she ain't a devil in disguise

Is it wrong to fall in love with a girl just cuz she loves the way the banjo glides

Do we follow sounds

Do they lead us through the paths we go down

Well she cut me a mix tape and told me I should listen before we said our goodbyes

So I took it home that night, put it on, and closed my eyes

Each track was like a breath keeping me alive

Is it wrong to fall in love with a girl just cuz she loves the way the banjo cries
