"Breaking Down" as written by and Jeremy Matthew Messersmith....
I've got a car that's always stuck in the last gear
It starts and it goes if you leave it alone but you can't steer
Taking it out for a Sunday drive on the back roads
And it waits till I'm far away from home and the sun is getting low

And wouldn't you know it, she's breaking down again
Pulling her over onto the shoulder, letting her under my skin

I've got a woman that I haven't seen for a good year
She's got a new job, yeah I love her a lot but she ain't here
We've got a system and she's got it all worked out
But there's something missing that she's forgetting that she can't live without

And wouldn't you know it, she's breaking down again
Pulling her over onto my shoulder, letting her under my skin

I've got a car, it looks real good with the top down
But it lost a tire and caught on fire in the last town
I've got a girl that's drying her eyes with a haiku
So I'm hitching a ride down 35, gotta be there by afternoon

And wouldn't you know it, she's breaking down again
Pulling her over onto my shoulder, letting her under my skin

And wouldn't you know it, she's breaking down again
Pulling her over onto my shoulder, letting her under my skin

And wouldn't you know it, she's breaking down again
Pulling her over onto my shoulder, letting her under my skin
