James McMurtry — Restless lyrics

She gets a little restless in the spring
She might follow the lines you sing
Bullshit though they are
'Cause sometimes that's just the thing
If delivered with panache and a certain graceFingertips on satin lace
Cutting cards and quoting Proust
Whatever turns her wild mare loose

She gets a little restless now and then
She feels the changes in the wind
Way down deep where I can't see
She can get clean away from me
With a side step and subtle shift
And the turning of a key
Locks me out and lets me drift
She'll come back if I let her be
She'll come back if I let her be
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/james-mcmurtry-restless-lyrics.html ]
And I'm just a little down tonight
I'm just a little down
A little messed up is all I'm saying
Just a little down tonightI'm just a little down
But I believe I'll make it
Believe I'll make it

She gets a little restless I can tell
When she goes back up inside her shell
And the conversation slows
To a stop and I might as well
Be out alone on the highway
Way off in the Utah sage
Waving to the railroad crew
That's when I get restless too

She gets a little restless in the spring
She might follow the lines you sing
Bullshit though they are
Sometimes that's just the thing
