      About "Eighteen Inches"

      Lyrics for Lauren Alaina - "Eighteen Inches"

      It’s about fifteen hundred miles to California
      They’ll get their Friday, if they leave tonight
      She sneaks out at three thirty in the morning
      Leaves a note so she won’t see her daddy cry

      He cuts the engine when he coasts in the driveway
      She slides in and gives him one kiss for the road
      No friends and no family, no job out there waiting
      The whole town will call ‘em crazy
      But they gotta go

      [Chorus]
      ‘Cause when you’re young and in love, yeah
      You might do some things
      That don’t seem all that smart
      ‘Cause there ain’t no greater distance
      Than the eighteen inches from your head to your heart

      They can barely make a rent
      On a rundown apartment
      She’s waiting tables and he’s a valet
      They’re behind on the bills
      And the car’s barely running
      But he buys a ring with the tips that he saved

      [Chorus]

      Last thing they need
      Is another mouth to feed
      But they want one
      They’re just kids themselves
      But that’s gonna change in nine more months

      She wakes him up at three thirty in the morning
      Ready or not their new life’s gonna start
      Seven pounds and eighteen inches
      The doctor lays that new baby’s head
      Right on her heart

      When you’re young and in love, yeah
      You might do some things
      That don’t seem all that smart
      But thank God for those eighteen inches
      The distance it is from your head to your heart
      Yeah, yeah
      Yeah, yeah
