Things have gotten hard and then we called it quits
Drove an hour to the Rocky show and after that was it
And if you could have seen me, And you know just how I've been
Instead of asking you'd see the very state that I am in
Well, I left for California on a cold October day
Could have called from my hotel room, instead I cried there every day
Saying "God, if you are out there, and if you can hear me, then take the boy from out of all my dreams and bring him back to me".

Cause, these days move slow without you now
I thought I was stronger but somehow
I have found that the reason that I know just what I want is 'cause I want you around

Things had gotten tricky when you moved to Tennessee
But we always saw the good out there and I started to believe
That if I got my shit together we could have a family
Or maybe just a dog and a place to live for only you and me
But now I've gone and done it paying rent down by the sea
In a room just big enough for one to play guitar and leave
And I knew I had to do it but I didn't want to be
The one to ruin all our plans, to cut our hope and watch it bleed

Cause, these days move slow without you now
I thought I was stronger but somehow
I have found that the reason that I know just what I want is 'cause I want you around

But you couldn't stay, and so I left
Well you wanted to say, well I won't hold my breath
What did you want me to tell you?
I've been thinking about you

Maybe down the road I'll see you in another town
If you haven't found someone out there or gone and settled down
Well maybe we can try again or maybe we'll forget
The way we once looked at each other like the best ain't happened yet

Cause, these days move slow but I'll get by
I'll keep on breathing and I'll try
Well I find that the reason why I know just what I want it's not 'cause I want you around
