Lauren Alaina – Three (Road Less Traveled Album)

[Verse 1]
Three ways before I could even meet
My brother’s son didn’t see him turn one or two
Three months I haven’t made Sunday service once
I’m out on the road praying alone
Every night for a sign that I’m doing this right
And I’m right where I’m supposed to be

[Chorus]
Mama said, "you’ll be a star."
And daddy said, "you’re gonna go far, all you gotta do is sing your heart out."
A lot of miles, a lot of tears
You’ve given me some of my best years
There’s so much I had to miss out on
Six years of missing home for three minutes on the radio

[Verse 2]
Three years of wishing that he was here holding my hand
No I didn’t plan for those three words
To be the ones that hurt
They don’t sound the same from so far away

[Chorus]
Mama said, "you’ll be a star."
And daddy said, "you’re gonna go far, all you gotta do is sing your heart out."
A lot of miles, a lot of tears
You’ve given me some of my best years
There’s so much I had to miss out on
Six years of missing home for three minutes on the radio

[Bridge]
I’ll do it for the three girls
At my show, who saved up for the front row
And the three times that I heard just this week that my words were sang by three year old
Hairbrush for a microphone
Little girl with a dream
And that girl was me, yeah

[Chorus]
My mama said, "you’ll be a star."
And daddy said, "you’re gonna go far, all you gotta do is sing your heart out."
A lot of miles, a lot of tears
You’ve given me my best years
There’s so much I had to miss out on
Six years of missing home
But I’d spend fifty more gone for three minutes on the radio
