songs

Country song

The bar gives her all its attention; she’ll say she didn’t flirt

I wrap my hands around a whiskey, pretend that it doesn’t hurt

Their eyes follow her back   to the table and then she sits

She smiles, hands me a drink and I start to forget about it

 

The band starts and she leans forward to hear them play

I hope they are so good enough  as to make her want to stay

All of the light in the darkness finds its way into her eyes

I just stare in the dark where I don’t need my disguise

 

Chorus

So I’m that guy I guess

Not sure how I go into this mess

The confusion, the contusions

I’ve come to the conclusion

I’m just kidding myself

It will never be the way I want it to be

I’ll never be free

 

She said I love you one time, I remember though I was drunk

Said she meant it and some other words and forgot about it at once

I have no claim, I have no say, she’s got kids, she’s got a man

So I ask her to lie  and get away when she can

 

Chorus

So I’m that guy I guess

Not sure how I go into this mess

The confusion, the contusions

I’ve come to the conclusion

I’m just kidding myself

It will never be the way I want it to be

I’ll never be free

 

 

So I try to play guitar just for her, I’ve even tried to sing

I try to think of a solution, anyway that could alter things

But there’s no way out; truth is nothing she can do is wrong

Whatever she says or wants I’ll just  go along

 

Chorus

So I’m that guy I guess

Not sure how I go into this mess

The confusion, the contusions

I’ve come to the conclusion

I’m just kidding myself

It will never be the way I want it to be

I’ll never be free
