Sandpaper Song Lyrics

[Verse 1: Zach Bryan]
The shape you take when you lay like that
Reminds me of a love I've never had
If loving's wrong, what's a boy to do?
I ain't scared of death, I'm scared of losing you
You ain't out of my league, you're out of this planet
But dammit if you ain't drilled into my skull

[Chorus: Zach Bryan]
Take a trip uptown to clear you out of my mind
You're like sandpaper, the more I try, you bind
Winter was a drag and spring was a friend
I'll love you 'til the summer comes back again
They've been trying to smooth me out
For twenty-seven seasons now
For twenty-seven seasons now

[Verse 2: Bruce Springsteen]
When I close my eyes, I think of times
I could smell and hear, that northern thunder
But every pine has its time
To outgrow the rings of days a-younger
I'll be still at the cutting mill
Making me a roof that you can hide under

[Chorus: Zach Bryan & Bruce Springsteen]
Take a trip uptown to clear you out of my mind
You're like sandpaper, the more I try, you bind
Winter was a drag and spring was a friend
I'll love you 'til the summer comes back again
They've been trying to smooth me out
For twenty-seven seasons now
For twenty-seven seasons

[Chorus: Zach Bryan & Bruce Springsteen]
Take a trip uptown to clear you out of my mind
You're like sandpaper, the more I try, you bind
Winter was a drag but spring was a friend
I'll love you 'til the summer comes back again
And they've been trying to smooth me out
For twenty-seven seasons now
For twenty-seven seasons now
For twenty-seven seasons now
For twenty-seven seasons now
