    Favorite Blown Away Lyrics?

    I've been listening to Good in Goodbye a lot lately, and every time these lyrics get me:

    You looked happy
    With that little girl up on your shoulders, happy
    I know where she got those crystal eyes of blue
    Time's been sweet to you

    So that got me to thinking: What are everyone's favorite lyrics on this album? I remember doing this for Play On, lol. Here are a couple more that I love:

    She remembers the change in her body, the blooming within
    And how her heart seemed to flutter, like the wind
    ***
    Two black Cadillacs driving in a slow parade
    Headlights shining bright in the middle of the day
    One is for his wife, the other for the woman that loved him at night
    Two black Cadillacs meeting for the first time
    ***
    She locked herself in the cellar
    Listened to the screaming of the wind
    Some people call it taking shelter
    She called it sweet revenge

    I have so many on this album, but I'm loving in CGAS where she says "he's about to find out I'm a Daanng good shot myself", OH! and closer to the end of TBC where she sings "and left the secret at the grave".. Crazy goose bumps! I'm embarrassed to say I know just about all the lyrics of all the songs on BA. Does that make me obsessed?

    Depends. I think my favourite "fun" lyric will be the last verse of OWT. "Punch that clock....LICK IT!". "Mirror mirror...underneath" from NETY is also awesome.

    Need to think hard about a more serious lyric. The very chorus of TBC chills me ("And the preacher....secret to hide"). I really like the bit about county lines welcoming you in even as you wanna get out from TGFH. And obviously the synthesized voice on BA ("There's not enough rain....nails out of the past"). Some gems in WAW and GIG too.

    OOO yeah I love in TGFH, where she sings "first red light I rolled the windows down breathing in and took a look around". I KNOW this feeling!

    Good in Goodbye - "As bas it was, as bad as it hurt, I thank god I didn't get what I thought I deserved. Sometimes life leads you down a different road, when you're holding on to someone but you've got to let go"

    Thank God for Hometowns -"Thank God for hometowns, and all the love that makes you go round, Thank God for the country lines that welcome you back in when you were dying to get out"

    Wine after Whiskey - "Once upon a time our world was on fire and I loved to watch it burn"

    See You Again - "Said goodbye, turned around and you were gone, gone, gone"

    Blown Away - "Dry lightning cracks across the skies Those storm clouds gather in her eyes"

    my personal fave:

    I got used to being high and nothing that I try seems good enough right now, it's all so watered down like having wine after whiskey.... (goes on until the chorus is finish)

    "His lips are dripping honey, but he'll sting you like a bee"

    "There's not enough wind in Oklahoma to rip the nails out of the past"

    "They decided then he'd never get away with doing this to them"

    "You are the stars to me"

    "We ran in when the thunder came/You told me sugar melts in the rain"

    "Blackberry winter in a little white church stood a young, pretty bride"

    "All hung up on the negative doesn't have to be the way it is"

    "Life is so good it's sticky sweet/It's a carnival cotton candy treat/Unwrap it like a lollipop/Lick it!"

    "Thank God for the county lines that welcome you back in when you were dying to get out"

    "When you're holding onto someone that you've gotta let go/Someday you'll see the reason why"

    "Ain't it funny how love can make you feel/Crush you like a ton of steel"

    "He's sittin' in that treestand and his wings are camouflage/I'm deep down in my foxhole waiting on his next barrage"

    "Nothing that I've tried seems to be good enough right now/It's all so watered down"

    "The one that leads me through the flood and through the fire"

    My absolute favorite lyric is probably

    "as bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
    I thank God I didnt get what I thought that I deserved

    Sometimes life leads you down a different road
    when your holding on to someone that you gotta let go
    someday you'll se the reason why
    sometimes yeah sometimes theres good in goodbye"

    something about that whole song just puts a feeling in me that I have never felt in a song before. It chilling

    YES! Haha.

    Say adios to the minimum wage
    Tell your boss man where he can stick it
    ...
    It's like a carnival cotton candy treat
    Unwrap it like a lollipop and lick it!

    Louisa's Favourite Lyrics From Each Track On Blown Away

    Good Girl: His lips are dripping honey
    But heíll sting you like a bee
    So lock up all your loviní
    Go and throw away the key
    Hey good girl

    Blown Away: Thereís not enough rain in Oklahoma
    To wash the sins out of that house
    Thereís not enough wind in Oklahoma
    To rip the nails out of the past
    Shatter every window till itís all blown away

    Two Black Cadillacs: It was the first time and last time they saw each other face to face
    They shared a crimson smile and just walked away
    And left the secret at the grave

    See You Again: Cause I know Iíll never be lonely
    for you are the stars to me,
    You are the light I follow

    Do You Think About Me: We ran in when the thunder came
    You told me sugar melts in the rain
    Donít want to watch our love go to waste
    So we ran inside before it was too late

    Forever Changed: She remembers the change in her body
    The blooming within
    And how her heart seemed to flutter with the wind

    Nobody Ever Told You: You shine like a diamond
    Glitter like a gold
    And you need to know
    when nobody ever told you

    One Way Ticket: Raise your hands in the air tonight
    Put a little love back in your life
    Get your feet up, just kick it
    We got a one way ticket

    Thank God For Hometowns: I could feel myself come back to life
    the closer that Iíd get
    first red light I rollded the windows down
    breathed it in and took a look around

    Good In Goodbye: I donít regret it
    the time we had together
    I wonít forget it
    But we both ended up where we belong
    I guess goodbye made us strong

    Leave Love Alone: Ainít it funny how love can make you fly
    Sweetest buzz and the highest high
    when you canít walk to the other side
    ainít it funny how love can make you fly

    Cupidís Got A Shotgun: I pulled out my Remington and I loaded up these shells
    Heís about to find out Iím a dang good shot myself

    Wine After Whiskey: Once youíve tasted a love that strong
    You canít go back and you canít settle on anything less
    And thatís what gets me. Itís like having wine after whiskey

    Who Are You: Youíre my savior, youíre my center
    my beginning and my end
    Youíre the one I live for, youíre my angel
    Who are you

    Do You Think About Me: Oh I, Ooh I, I'm not even tryin'
    Oh I, Ooh I, but I can't stop smilin' - This alone makes this song one of my favorites

    And basically the entire song of good in goodbye especially "as bad as it was, as bad as it hurt, I thank God I didn't get what I thought that I deserved

    I couldn't agree more. I can't even put into words what I feel about this song, its just incredible.

    I'll have to go trough everything and pick some more lyrics I like, I know there's a lot!

    For me, there were specific moments of Carrie "magic" on this record, so to speak. Some people have already touched on 'em.

    "His lips are drippin' honey, but he'll sting you like a bee." -- Good Girl. Self-explanatory. I adore this.

    "Blown away, blown awaaaaay." -- Blown Away. I know the actual lyric isn't the focus here, but I'm talking about the ending of the first chorus. The way Carrie goes falsetto, and then her voice is filtered and soars in a piano dynamic. Ah, that just kills me.

    "It was the first time and last time they saw each other face to face
    They shared a crimson smile and just walked away
    And left the secret at the grave" -- Two Black Cadillacs. I just love the arrangement and the way Carrie sings this. One of the most magical moments on the album.

    "You are the stars to me." -- See You Again. Seriously, everything about that one line is perfect. Sometimes I listen to the song just to hear that one line.

    "Oh, I, oh oh oh oh oh oh I, I'm not even tryin'." -- Do You Think About Me. The way Carrie sings that makes my heart flutter.

    I've got a couple for Forever Changed. I love the way Carrie sings "Nothing ever stays the same." That's gotta be the best vocal interpretation of a song Carrie has ever done. The way she sings that line is extraordinary.

    "Some days I just hold her fragile hand
    as time creeps 'cross the floor
    Some days it almost kills me
    watching her memory slip away a little more" -- The way Carrie sings this part brings tears to my eyes. Seriously, most emotional moment of the album.

    Wine After Whiskey has a handful of excellent lyrics, too. The first verse is my absolute favorite.
    "Once upon a time our world was on fire and I loved to watch it burn
    Wild and reckless, never any limits." -- Those lyrics are legit some of the best from the album. Additionally:
    "Cause fire turns to ember, embers to ashes that blow away too soon" -- The way Carrie sings that is magical.

    You guys know what I mean by magical? I can't really describe it with any other word.

    "Who are you
    Who takes me through the flood and through the fire?" -- Who Are You. I don't understand how you people aren't salivating over the perfection of the way Carrie sings this. It's so confused and vulnerable. It's just excellent.

    since GIG is my favourite song, I love all lyrics, but mostly this part:
    I don’t regret it
    the time we had together
    I won’t forget it
    But we both ended up where we belong
    I guess goodbye made us strong
