Biscuits and Gravy

There was a time 
When I would stay out all night long. 
I saw no line 
Separating right from wrong. 
Deep inside I knew 
There’s got to be a better way. 
You see, love was missing from my human condition 
Until I first saw you that day. 

We’re like biscuits and gravy. You and me, baby. 
We’re the best combo I know. I don’t mean maybe. 
We’re like biscuits and gravy. 
Forever, I’m your man - and you’re my lady. 

Looking at you, 
I can finally feel the beat of my heart. 
From my point of view, 
I’m more alive now than when we were apart. 
Hope you feel the same 
And want me ‘til the end of time, 
Because some things, like different guitar strings 
Are better when they’re combined. 

We’re like biscuits and gravy. You and me, baby. 
We’re the best combo I know. I don’t mean maybe. 
We’re like biscuits and gravy. 
Forever, I’m your man - and you’re my lady. 

I know we’ll be happy 
For many years to come. 
I always said, 
A pair of shoes is always better than one. 
Side by side, 
Nothing better get in our way. 
Can’t you just see you and me, I said, 
Can’t you just see you and me 
Partners in crime ‘til we’re old and grey? 

We’re like biscuits and gravy. You and me, baby. 
We’re the best combo I know. I don’t mean maybe. 
We’re like biscuits and gravy. 
Forever, I’m your man - 
(repeat & fade) 

Songwriter's Notes: This is an upbeat yet touching song that describes a lifelong and loving relationship as a tasty metaphor. Inspired by the singer-songwriter’s own marriage, the genre of this tune can best be described as a fusion of "country rock" and "pop rock" with a memorable, punchy chorus. Rock on and bon appetit!
