"Tucked Away" as written by and Robbie Takac....
Well I saw you once
Then I blew it for the next ten thousand days
I should of packed away

I needed to go back and show you
I needed to go back, I know it's wrong
I'll have to get along

Mama just called, said she's tucked away
Mama just called, said she's tucked away another day
Mama just called, said she's tucked away
Her momma just called, said she's extra sad today

Well I spent the whole day yesterday on cliches about love
Makin' me remember when your pushes became shoves

I wanted to go back and show ya
I needed to go back, I know it's wrong
I'll have to get along

Mama just called, said she's tucked away
Mama just called, said she's tucked away another day
Mama just called, said she's tucked away
Her momma just called, said she's extra sad today

So why'd you go and play my trust
Today's the same as yesterday
And I'm okay
I'll take a doctor's recommended time to get along
Since you've been gone
I'll get along oh any way at all

Mama just called, said she's tucked away
Mama just called, said she's tucked away another day
Mama just called, said she's tucked away
Mama just called, said she's tucked away another day
Tucked away

    General CommentThis song is about suicide evident in the lines

    I'll take a doctor's recommended time to get along
    Since you've been gone
    I'll get along oh any way at all

    Mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day

    Her mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Her momma just called and said she's extra sad today
