It's a Sunday And I'm locked away I tried writin' you a letter, but I don't have nothin' to say You say you don't like How you feel tonight And there's nothing you'd rather do than just get it right You can try for better weather But don't wait for the call 'Cause you tried to make things better Than you lost it all Do you dream at all about me? Is it hard to live without me? Baby, I ain't one for crawlin' back, and fallin' at your feet Did you really think that I would never leave? 'Cause that wouldn't be me I'm doin' alright Tryin' to win the fight And it's an uphill battle on the way to feelin' right Like a sad song Goin' on too long It's a whole lot better than hell, but it's still wrong So I'll drink this dedication To the dreams I've left behind And the tragic realization That you can't stop time
How did we get here? I never seem to really know What made you happy At all Days turn to nights And the nights to weeks Rollin' along, and it's killin' me It's too close to call I've got a mind to say That I'm sick and tired of how it's goin' Can't you see that this is wrong? Your heads in the clouds, and you're so proud But you don't know the seeds I'm sowing I'm draggin' behind, but I won't be long Take all the money Take your brand new shiny car Take all the reasons That you are And write 'em all down in exchange for the truth Put up a wall that I can't see through But you won't get far
Pretty Mama 03:09
Late in the evening when the lights go down You're makin' music without makin' a sound I wish you could see the way I see you right now Oh, pretty mama Leave the table, leave the candle in flame Lock the door, and set aside these crazy games I know how you're feelin', and I'm feelin' the same Oh, pretty mama I tried to keep it steady But it's so hard to control And now, you've got me thinkin' that I've lost my very soul You said "Let's keep it simple, Let's try not to make a scene" But the way you let your hair down has got me beggin' on my knees So if you please, go easy on me Oh Pretty Mama They say that half the time love don't last But my mind is different, I don't care about the past You've got me fallin' and I can't go back Oh, pretty mama And when you lay beside me The world falls apart I wish that I could show you what you're doin' to my heart I was livin' like a sinner So lonesome I could die But now, you've got me singin' and I know the reason why It's worth a try, makin' you mine Oh, pretty mama
At Home 03:35
Bought you flowers this morning To cover this mess I was caught in the crosshair You'd already left I had time to alone at home So this evening I went out To drown all the hurt But the anger kept growin' And the whiskey just burned I had time to waste at home Woman I hate to see you cry And I know this ain't somethin' you need You know, you look good in the firelight But I can't make you stay and love me Left a note on the front stair In case you came through There's been others but no one Can love like you do Make that fire glow at home If you ever get lonely And feel like you did My door is still open Like it's always been There's a place for you at home
Bootlegger 04:06
