lyrics

I could add it up, I could write it all down
In the middle of the night when the lights went out
I could take a guess, I could pull right out of this
I could be accountable for all that I missed

South of Carolina I stood out in the rain
Trying to find the words, trying to explain
When I look at you, I don't feel the same
Here we go, here we go, here we go again

It wasn't nothing you were doing
I just gotta keep moving
it wasn't nothing you were saying
I just ain't no good at staying

East of Tennessee I was just about done
Trapped being the wheel and with nowhere to run
Ten hours of redemption could have saved anyone
But I'm right here beside you, and I don't even get one

It wasn't nothing you were doing
I just gotta keep moving
it wasn't nothing you were saying
I just ain't no good at staying

I could add it up
I could write it down
But I don't know when the lights went out

It wasn't nothing you were doing
I just gotta keep moving
it wasn't nothing you were saying
I just ain't no good at staying
It wasn't nothing you were doing
I just gotta keep moving
it wasn't nothing you were saying
I just ain't no good at staying
