Lyrics



Takin' my time

Choosin' my lines

Tryin' to decide what to do

Looks like my stop

Don't want to get off

Got myself hung up on you


Seems to me

You don't want to talk about it

Seems to me

You just turn your pretty head and walk away


Places I've known

Things that I'm growin'

Don't taste the same without you

I got my self in

The worst mess I've been

And I find myself starvin' without you


Seems to me

Talk all night here comes the mornin'

Seems to me

You just forget what we said and greet the day


I've got to cool myself down

Stompin' around

Thinkin' some words I can't name ya

Meet you half way

Got nothing to say

Still I don't suppose I can blame ya


Seems to me

You don't want to talk about it

Seems to me

You just turn your pretty head and walk away
