Red, and that was how she left me Out of the blue last night Without goodbye myself, all alone on a Friday night Asking why, ain’t you hoppin in my truck Right about now we’d be tearing up my driveway Outskirts bound wondering what her dad would say Bout her makeup on my button up Little Maker’s left in a coffee cup And you had my favorite dress on, it was Red…” Stay current with everything Jesse Lopez on his website https://www.jesselopez.com and follow him on social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
