I’ve got grandma’s quilt wrapped around me tight
I’ve got big dreams that keep me up at night
There’s a shining star I’ve hitched my wagon on
And if I fly or I fall down
My feet will be firmly on the ground
And no matter where I go or who I become
I won’t forget where I came from

CHORUS
‘Cause I was raised that way
To live my life with no what ifs
To know you get back what you give
Yeah, I was raised that way
To dream with everything I’ve got
To love with a wide open heart
Oh I thank God every day
I was raised that way

I don’t need someone to open doors for me
Don’t need bright lights and fancy limousines
Just the simple things in life would be enough
My mom and dad are still always holding hands
And our living room is their favorite place to dance
So I guess if I believe in love
It’s just because

CHORUS
‘Cause I was raised that way
To live my life with no what ifs
To know you get back what you give
Yeah, I was raised that way
To dream with everything I’ve got
To love with a wide open heart
Oh I thank God every day
I was raised that way

I was taught that anything is possible
The world is full of miracles that come out of the blue
Call me old-fashioned, a hopeless romantic
But I still believe it’s true

CHORUS
