Performances (93)

It's morning time, I wonder where you are
Wonder who you're talking to
I wonder if the sun has risen where you are
It's morning time, I miss your hands on my skin
This bed's too big without you,

Oh, God, What do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away
And I'm lying next to you

The sun shines gold and I feel like my car
A little run down, a little beat up, maybe just a little green
Maybe it's my battery, maybe it's my starter, maybe my heart's too weak
It was just this feeling, thought I had to get going
Got too scary, got too big,
Said girl, gots to get outta here
But now, I don't know how to get home

Oh, God, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away
And I'm lying next to you

Mama says take my vitamins
Daddy says girl, don't stay out so late
And sister says there's other fishes in the sea
Oh, but love is not a rational thing
And my heart is beyond advice
No, love is not a rational thing

Oh, God, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away
And I'm lying next to you

These fields stretch out like patchwork on my granny's quilt
She used to tell me that life is a series of strange and mysterious things
One minute you think you're up the next you find you're down
Your mind says, girl, you've gotta stick around,
But your heart says, Oh, I'm too weak in the knees

Oh, God, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away
Said, Oh, God, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away
And I'm lying next to you
