What you were
when you came inside
a godsend in headlights all (edit: on?) last night
I'm still startled by what I came to believe in Tennessee, yeah.

But I compromised,
oh yeah I compromised,
I shouldn't have compromised,
now that I've compromised.

I wish times
why don't you light my way,
and I rode all night wishing I could have stayed.
and I realized last time I closed my eyes was in Tennessee, yeah.

But I compromised,
Oh yeah I compromised,
I shouldn't have compromised, now that I'm compromised.

Then I blink for a minute just to see that you were gone,
replaced by something I think I saw all along.
Now you're just what I expected,
but refused to believe In Tennessee.
In Tennessee.
In Tennessee.

And I'm home but i can't sleep, no.
you're no star, least, least not in my sky
it's unintelligent the way I keep begging why
didn't you have enough toys to play with in Tennessee
did you have to play with me?

Then I blink for a minute just to see that you were gone,
replaced by something I think I saw all along.
and now you're just what I expected, but refused to believe,
oh yeah, you're just what I expected but refused to believe, yeah
you're just what I expected but refused to believe,
in Tennessee.
In Tennessee.
