lyrics

She drove a tricked-out, top-down, rockin' jalopy

That she bought with an IOU

She was a well-read, well-bred opulent Aussie

Who had dropped out of NYU

She was a free bird

Not believing what she heard

Like a tiger when she purred

And I wanna make her mine



She was a hard-to-get jet set sunny vacation

From a nation of icy freeze

She was a palm tree, white beach, pretty location

And her face brought me to my knees

She was a good girl

Doing all that she could girl

Whatsoever she would girl

And I wanna make her mine



On my mind

I think about her all the time

I think about her almond eyes

I think about her smile

She got me speechless, gaga I drop my jaw

I'm impressed, Father I guess I better

Confess, Lord what she's doing to me

I wanna make her mine



She was a hot rod, good God,

Magical potion in an ocean of DOA's

She was an ice cream, pipe dream

Musical motion and I'm hopin' that she looks my way

She was a bright light

Burning flame in the night time

Showing up at the right time

Never late and I wanna make her mine



Girl, you could be my life

My light

My everything

That'd be just fine

Let's take a walk in the sunshine

Let's drink it in like a fine wine

Let's live our lives on the bright side

Just don't forget what I'm telling ya

Darlin', you could be my life

My light

My everything

That'd be divine

Let's open up what we've shut down

Let's let it in what we've locked out

Let's set it straight what was turned round

With love like this, I know we'll be fine



I was an average guy

Humble as pie

I wasn't quite sure what to say but

We would pass in the street

And our eyes would suddenly meet

And you would smile at me

Something's bringing us closer



I was a rag tag, dime bag, decadent dreamer

Who was weened here in SLC

I was an unlocked prog rock nothing to see here

Who would doubt his divinity

She was a deep breath

Cheer me up when I'm depressed

Calm me down when I'm upset

And I wanna make her mine



On my mind

I think about her all the time

I think about her almond eyes

I think about her smile

She got me speechless, gaga I drop my jaw

I'm impressed, Father I guess I better

Confess, Lord what she's doing to me

I wanna make her mine



We could be more than before, babe we could make a good team

If you'd be my life

And we could live long, love strong, babe we could make a new dream

If you'd be my wife

Cause you're the right one

Shining out like a bright sun

Flying high as a kite and I

I wanna make you mine
