"All The Stars In Texas" as written by and Timothy Ferrell Matthew Palermo....
Desert township, franchise night shift
Small minds, blank eyes, big ol' bank slips
I'll take big boy, he'll clean those drawers good
I'll get that safe while you start the car, pretty thing
Gimme a kiss and keep your foot on the gas, now, 'cause

All these people understand
Is a gun in their face or the cash in their hand
I wanna take you home and start a family, yeah
But all the stars in Texas ain't got nothin' on your eyes
When you say, "Let's hit 'em one more time

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Motel bedside, Kansas sunlight
Tall grass, short dress
Star-crossed hot night
Linens whisper, wrists-held-down love
Your daddy was a crooked soul with his heavy hand
And Bourbon cold, I shot him dead
You hopped in, you were the prettiest thing I ever stole, and

All these people understand
Is a gun in their face or the cash in their hand
I wanna take you home and start a family, yeah
But all the stars in Texas ain't got nothin' on your eyes
When you say, "Let's hit 'em one more time"

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

We never shot a single one
They'd all been dead for years
Now stop
1, 2,
1, 2, 3, 4!


And all these people understand
Is a gun in their face or the cash in their hand
I wanna take you home and start a family, yeah

Oh, all those stars in Texas, I'll steal 'em if you want 'em
Grab you by the hips, let's hit it, baby, one more time
Let's see the goods, nice and slow

    My InterpretationThis COMPLETELY reminds me of Bonnie and Clyde, the thief couple from Texas. The bit about the car and everything.

    General CommentIt does, but apparently Bonnie's father died when she was 4 years old. So the second verse doesn't really match too well.

    General CommentOkay so it's pretty obvious that this song is about robbing convenience stores together but, if you ask me, he's ready to stop, settle down "and start a family" but she's not. And when she says "let's hit 'em one more time" he just can't argue or deny her because of how she looks when she says it. The sparkle of her eyes I guess.
