Something waits for her in Oregon
I cannot compete
I feel compelled by life to leave this town
But I can't move my feet

So I pray this humble prayer
To whoever might be out there
I could worship what I cannot see
Or maybe I should just let go
Voluntarily

Something waits for me or so I wish
The stars are all aligned
It's not so bad he says and means each word
as we smoke to pass the time

So I lay here in the night
With my fingers turned as cold as ice
I could ask or help but from who
When all I want is to forget
Inside of a room

Maybe I'm overacting like I always do
I don't know if you remind me of her
Or if she makes me think of you

Something waits for everyone I know
Though we don't all agree
We feel compelled by life to leave our towns
but stay to make ends meet

So I wind up at her door
I won't beg but I can't ask for more
It's familiar when I take it in
Maybe I don't have to lose
But I can never win

    General CommentI actually know this artist. Most of her song lyrics are super personal and are influenced by stuff that happened to her or people that have affected her. This song is no different. It's so great that she's on here.
