Sam Hunt – 23 Lyrics

23 By Sam Hunt

You can marry an architect, build you a house out on the water
If he impresses your father
You can find some grown up friends
Drink some wine in California
Even if you cut it short?

You’ll always have long blonde hair
You’ll always be my first queen?
You’ll always be my first time, in new orleans

No matter where I go, no matter what I do
I’ll never be 23, with anyone but you, you can marry who you want, go back to Tennessee, but you’ll never be 23 with anyone but me

We’ll always have ?
We’ll always have delta nights
We’ll always be in between real love and real life

You can ride a train to work
Straighten out your accent in the city
Like your folks ain’t from Mississippi

Probably got an office view
Wearing those skirts you always hated
You’re so sophisticated

But I bet you didn’t drink too much
I bet you think about back when
I really hope you’re happy now
I really thought I knew you then

No matter where I go, no matter what I do
I’ll never be 23, with anyone but you, you can marry who you want, go back to Tennessee, but you’ll never be 23 with anyone but me

We’ll always have ?
We’ll always have delta nights
We’ll always be in between real love and real life

You’ll always have your first last name, standing in that July rain, telling me your mind has changed, but in my mind its still the same
Long blonde hair, you’ll always be my first queen, you’ll always be my first time in New Orleans

No matter where I go, no matter what I do
I’ll never be 23, with anyone but you, you can marry who you want, go back to Tennessee, but you’ll never be 23 with anyone but me
