"Happy Alone" as written by Angelo T. Petraglia, Ivan Nathan Followill and Anthony Caleb Followill....
On our way, so it seems, blooming flowers waltz before me
Rollin' numbers, passing time, got to get outside the city,
In the morning all will see, just how crazy young love can be
On our own away again, don't get down my darlin'

I'm gonna tangle my face hair, it's gonna tickle your daughter
Three o'clock and the moaning, they all cry to me,
I'll be prancin' around in my high heels, and your cherry red lipstick,
Look out your window I'm on your street

Miles away, so unclear, almost lost it in Montana
Lets pull over, have us a choke
I love to watch you when your dancin'
I wonder if they ever dream, they would get just what we gave them
All wrapped up in being nineteen, chasin' stars that are fallin'

I'm gonna tangle my face hair, it's gonna tickle your daughter
Three o'clock and the moaning, they all cry to me,
I'll be prancin' around in my high heels, and your cherry red lipstick,
Look out your window I'm on your street

When that train heads home,
They're gonna be so gone gone, you ain't never gonna see me
I'm a gone gone, you ain't nothin to me
When they shine them streets, they're gonna find our song

I'm gonna tangle my face hair, it's gonna tickle your daughter
Three o'clock and the moaning, they all cry to me,
I'll be prancin' around in my high heels, and your cherry red lipstick,
Look out your window I'm on your street

I'm gonna tangle my face hair, it's gonna tickle your daughter
Three o'clock and the moaning, they all cry to me,
I'll be prancin' around in my high heels, and your cherry red lipstick,
Look out your window I'm on your street

I'm on your street, they all cry to me
I'm on your street, they all cry to me
I'm on your street, they all cry to me
I'm on your street, they all cry to me
I'm on your
I'm on your street, they all cry to me
I'm on your street, they all cry to me

    General Comment"I think it's about all the girls in different cities they have slept with and then left lol
    Pretty much warning the fathers of their promiscuity."

    There's a whole lot of misinterpretations on this thread, and this person is the only one that got it right. It's not about being 19 and growing up. It's about all the girls they are sleeping with on the road because they are rock stars. He's actually degrading these girls in this song too, referring to their naivety and starstruckness (I made that word up).


    "I'm gonna tangle my face hair, it's gonna tickle your daughter
    Three o'clock and the moaning, they all cry to me,"

    -cunnilingus here

    "I'll be prancin' around in my high heels, and your cherry red lipstick,
    Look out your window I'm on your street"

    -him celebrating his conquest and rubbing it into the girls and their parents' faces


    There's a common theme in many of KOL's music of them condemning women for putting out so easily and freely. This is clearly one of them

    General Commenti LOVE the line, "all wrapped up in being 19." i'm 19 and i feel like its the age in which people are constantly coming in and out of your life. he's on the road, "on his own" but every once in a while he'll show up on this girl's street back home. the followills pinpoint that feeling of coming and going so perfectly.

    this is such a great song to drive to too.
