Adkins, Trace - Watered Down Lyrics

I don't go all in but I'll take the gamble
And I don't burn both ends of the candle anymore
I take the corners, slower and steady
This chip on my shoulder, it ain't so heavy anymore

We still fly like gypsies
Just a little closer to the ground
And we still love our whiskey
But now it's just a little watered down

Couple girls I could've married, married someone else
These torches I still carry don't burn like hell the way they used to
The back side of 40 ain't near as crazy
And Sunday morning ain't near as hazy anymore

We still fly like gypsies
Just a little closer to the ground
And we still love our whiskey
But now it's just a little watered down

Those old ghosts still chase me
But feels like they're losing ground
Yeah I'm still crazy
But now I'm just a little watered down

  94. Bob Cloutier

    Just heard this song for the first time today. I listen to country music about 25% of the time but more lately. I have not heard Trace Adkins in a long time.

    This song caught my attention right away. The melody is very catchy.

    Then as I listened to the lyrics i thought "THIS IS EXACTLY WHERE I AM AT IN MY LIFE!".
    This sums up JUST how I have been feeling lately.
    The mood the song conveys, somewhat glad that I have mellowed over time and somewhat sad I can't be as young and free as I once was, well, it felt therapeutic!

    Love the song!
    Glad to hear Trace again!
