(l-r) Chris Lane performs 'Take Back Home Girl' with Tori Kelly on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on April 2, 2018.

Chris Lane and Tori Kelly harmonize about the girl that you can take back home to your parents in the song "Take Back Home Girl." The romantic country-pop track discusses the appeal of a natural girl ("You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya") and how natural it is to be in love with her.    

It's laid back in its beat, but is reflective in how nerve-racking it can be to make it to that next step in a relationship. It's the "feeling homecoming cool" swagger Lane sings about that Kelly in her perfect harmony understands and fulfills in the music video.     

Read the lyrics to Lane's "Take Back Home Girl" below.     

Duffle bag, backseat
My dash, your feet   
Those other side of the highway headlights making you shine
My hand, your leg
Playlist playing
Even though I haven't made it yet
I'm dragging it, dropping it in my mind

You're a drive real slow, down a no lane road
To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya
You're a help her fix it, having breakfast with my momma
You're a take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl
Take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl

(Oh)
You're the kind I wanna take a ride with
Sit by on a Friday night
In the stadium lights, side by side
All the ladies like, "Yeah, she's doing just fine"
Everybody in the bleachers, they all gon' want to meet ya
From my teachers to my preacher, my little crowd pleaser
Parading with you feeling homecoming cool, yeah

I wanna drive real slow, down a no lane road
To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya
You're a help her fix it, having breakfast with my momma
You're a take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl
Take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl, oh

(Woah, woah)
You're a take back, you're a take back (woah, woah)
You're a take back home girl (you're a take back home)
(Woah, woah)
You're a take back home girl
(Woah, woah) oh

You got that down-home, homegrown, found on good ground soul
That down-home, homegrown, found on good ground soul

You're a drive real slow, down a no lane road
To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya
You're a help her fix it, having breakfast with my momma
You're a take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl (you're a take back home)
Take back home, home, home girl
Home, home, home girl, oh, oh

You're a take back, you're a take back (woah, woah)
You're a take back home girl (you're a take back home, yeah)
You're a take back home, yeah (you're a take back home)
