Black Leather Jacket [*]
by Keith Urban



I wore a black leather jacket way back in high school
And man, lookin back at these pictures of us, we were so cool
You were so hot in your pink lipstick
Painted on the end of a lit cigarette
And I loved you girl, yeah, I loved you girl

[Chorus]
And if I put it back on, I'm sixteen sittin next to you
Down by the river you got the shivers, so I put it around you
Were countin down the memories in the moonlight and red wine, vinyl static
Three polaroids, two young hearts, and one real cool, black, leather jacket

A little tattered and torn, it still keeps me warm on a Friday night
Bandana patch from kickin some ass in a frat boy fight
You wore it in the stands at the football games
Some ink beneath the sleeve, I still wear your name
And I loved you girl, yeah, I still love you girl

[Chorus]

I know you grew up, I grew up, too
You got two kids, hell, I got two kids, too
Thank God they look like you

And every night I put it back it on and Im sixteen sittin next to you
Down by the river if you get the shivers, Ill put it around you
Were makin them memories in the moonlight and red wine, vinyl static
Three words, two rings, and one real cool, black, leather jacket

Well, there's nothin in the world makes me feel more alive
When its just you and me and the moon is high
I slip into the sleeves and with your hand in mine
I go back to the night when I fell into your eyes

Two kids just fallin in love
And here we are right now, good heavens above
Its only gettin better, baby
Its only getting better, baby
I just love that black, leather jacket
