Kelly Clarkson is getting nostalgic with a nod to 90s country again. The pop icon and daytime talkshow host performed a 1997 Lee Ann Womack hit during the “Kellyoke” segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show on Thursday (April 28). The soulful ballad sees the singer returning to an old flame, seemingly unable to permanently part ways from an on-again-off-again relationship:

“Each time you leave / I say I've had enough / But I must be addicted / To your kind of love / I swear to myself / I’m gonna stand my ground / But one look at you / Breaks my defenses down
“And here comes never again, again / Once more I'll let you back in / And just like it's always been / I’ll say never again, again / And just like it's always been / I’ll say never again, again”

Clarkson has previously dipped into the 90s country realm with covers of Terri Clark’s “Better Things To Do,” Brooks & Dunn’s iconic “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” and others. Clarkson has also put her own spin on some of the biggest songs in country by Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves and Kelsea Ballerini, to name a few. Watch her latest cover of Womack’s song here:
