lyrics

I called you to tell you I'm doing just fine
Although that may come to you as a surprise
I called you to tell you I'm sorry it's been two weeks
I tell you I've been busy as I lie through my teeth
You see mom I've just been stripped from my pace
All of my friends are scattered all over the place
So I called you to tell you I hate how I hurt
What's worse is I know you'll just fill me with worth

You always said need not for nothing
You always told me that what I've got it works
Well I need some new advice 'cuz I'm just barely scraping by

What if I'm wrong
Tell me I'm not
What if I cashed in all of my good luck
Too soon and now I have run out
Tell me I'm wrong

I called you to tell you I'm living the dream
You ask how I've been eating as I pour myself a drink
You say you can hear that quiver in my voice
The same quiver you once knew when I was just a young boy
If we're being honest then I'll tell it like it is
I'm so sick of trying but I don’t know how to quit
Nashville’s my home & I need her in my lungs
But she ain't opened up & I've spilled out my guts

You always said need not for nothing
You’ve always told me that what I've got is gold
Well I need some new advice 'cuz I'm just barely scraping by

What if I'm wrong
Tell me I'm not
What if I cashed in all of my good luck
Too soon and now I have run out
Tell me I'm wrong

Mom I'm a drifter I just thought you should know
And sometimes this river is angry and cold
But I wouldn't trade it for a fence and a door
I just wish I was better at climbing aboard
So if it looks like I'm drowning well I probably am
But don't cry and don't try to throw me a hand
’Cuz I'd rather die here and die like a man
And maybe that's wrong but it's all that I have



You always said need not for nothing
You’ve always said that with what I’ve go I’m on fire
Well I need some new advice 'cuz I'm put out, my arms are tired

What if I'm wrong
Tell me I'm not
What if I cashed in all of my good luck
Too soon and now I have run out
Tell me I'm wrong
