“Love in a Bar” Lyrics

It wasn’t the two for ones
That made the hour magic
It wasn’t anything else I guess that we just had it
I wasn’t there to get drunk but it happened ’cause I never wanted to say goodbye
We were just friends, just hanging
Just sitting ’round waiting for somebody to cross the line

We found love in a bar in the back of a patio corner
Away from the lights it was us and Corona
And hearts on fire like the cigarettes you smoke
When you drink now we can’t turn back ’cause the words came out
And the truth can’t lie
And we’ve been saying it with our eyes the whole time
That you have my whole heart
Yeah, we found love in a bar

You didn’t say sorry
You didn’t look away
Girl, you just said what I was thinking
You weren’t afraid

Yeah, we found love in a bar in the back of a patio corner
Away from the lights it was us and Corona
And hearts on fire like the cigarettes you smoke
When you drink now we can’t turn back ’cause the words came out
And the truth can’t lie
And we’ve been saying it with our eyes the whole time
That you have my whole heart
Yeah, we found love in a bar

We found love in a bar in the back of a patio corner
Away from the lights it was us and Corona
And hearts on fire like the cigarettes you smoke
When you drink now we can’t turn back ’cause the words came out
And the truth can’t lie
And we’ve been saying it with our eyes the whole time
That you have my whole heart
Yeah, we found love in a bar
Yeah, we found love in a bar

Goodness, these two are adorable and we can’t wait until they get hitched. Share this with other fans of Maren and Ryan!
